There are many comment-related plugins in WordPress plugin directory. However, if you'd like to find just a simple, reliable comment-posting Ajax plugin, you won't find any. That's why I developed a simple and small yet functional Ajax Comment Posting (ACP) plugin. Not only will it post your comment without refreshing the page, but it will also make sure that you've filled all the form fields correctly.

The plugin works well in all major Web browsers, and switches to the traditional comment posting if JavaScript is disabled.

As the new Google Analytics code conflicted with the plugin, a built-in support for GA has been added. Read the FAQ for more information.

ACP should work with all CAPTCHA word-verification plugins, but I personally suggest using Akismet.

You can easily add some more functionality to your comment form using jQuery, the best JavaScript framework, which is used by ACP to handle the Ajax requests and all JavaScript-related operations. The plugin is written in the simplest form, the code is kept clean and it's easy to see what a particular part of the code is responsible for.
