I tested Custom Comment Text in WP 2.9 and it broke. Here is the updated plugin.
Custom Write Panel is another WordPress plugin in the work. It is a plugin that will allow users to create custom write panels, alongside the existing Write Post and Write Page panels.
This custom write panels will appear under the Write panel, as Write Book Review, Write Aside, or Write [fill in the blank]. When a user chooses to write post under, say, Write Book Review, the write screen will be pre-set with the assigned category (Book Review). It will display certain set of custom fields (Book Title, Author, ISBN, etc).
I have updated Custom Comment Text plugin to resolve the issue of custom fields being deleted after a comment is posted. The issue is reported after the release of WP 2.1
Good news! This plugin is compatible with WordPress 2.0-beta-1.
This WordPress plugin allows the customization of comment text (e.g. “5 Comments”) generated by Template Tag
comments_popup_link(). The customization is set per Post basis; the Posts whose comment text are not customized will use default comment text output by that Template Tag.
Unpack the file
rc-custom-comment-text.zip and upload the file
wp-content/plugins/. Activate from WP’s Plugin Management page.
To specify custom comment text for a Post, fill out the text field input Custom Comment Text in the Write Post page. To include the comment number, add the percentage symbol (%) where the comment number to appear.
The following is an example of the input to Custom Comment Text text field.
I have % dude(s) sayin' something. How 'bout you?
To revert to WordPress’ default comment text, empty out the text field input Custom Comment Text.
