This is good news for educators who use Manila:
Managing editors can now easily delete comments and TrackBack pings from comment and TrackBack pop-up windows in Manila sites. To delete a comment or a ping, check the box below it, and then click the Delete Checked Comments button at the bottom of the comment pop-up window.
In addition, each comment and TrackBack ping now has its own permalink, displayed next to its post-time, which can be used to link to the individual item.
One thing that I’ve always worried about is a student’s inability to delete inappropriate comments from their sites without jumping through hoops to maintain the original post. Now they (and I) can.
Next step…how about a way to approve comments before they are posted???
Glad to see Manila continues to be developed.
