This plugin has been adopted.

New in Version 2.0

  • Zero configuration required / intelligent parsing of theme comment HTML
  • Disallowed HTML tags are stripped from the preview (thanks to Jamie Zawinski)

Live Comment Preview (LCP) allows your users to see how their comment will appear on the site as they type it.

Uses client-side Javascript only (no Ajax requests to the server) which means a responsive, smooth, live comment preview.
