The Comments CKEditor plugin adds a highly desirable functionality to the popular web editor. With this plugin, users can easily add comment text and associate it with specific locations in their editor text area, quite similar to the way this is done in G-Docs and MS-Word.
The Comments plugin supports the following features:
Comments can be placed anywhere in the text.
Comment markers can be freely dragged from one location in the text to another
Comments are arranged in conversation threads. The plugin supports comments management operations:
Reply to comment
The comment includes not just the text but also the commentator’s name, its avatar and the time of comment creation.
Integrating this plugin into your site was designed to be straightforward and demo code is provided.
