#2199 closed enhancement (fixed)

Make it easier for users to edit their review

Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Support Forums Keywords: needs-patch


Currently, it's pretty hard for users to find how to edit a review. When you visit your own review of a plugin, there's no hint at all that you can change it as you can see here:

Earlier today, @clorith suggested adding a notification to inform users about the option to change a review.

This could look something like this:

In 4918:

Support Forums: Fix a typo in [4721] that prevented "Edit Review" link from appearing in plugin/theme sidebar for non-keymasters.

Review is a topic, not a reply.

See #2199, #1977.

In 4919:

Support Forums: Move the code to check for current user's existing review for the plugin being viewed to a separate method.

Use the new method to change "Add your own review" button label to "Edit your own review" if the review already exists.

See #2199.

In 4922:

Support Forums: Use Ratings_Compat::review_exists() to set the text for "Add Review" or "Edit Review" link in plugin/theme sidebar.

This ensures the correct link text in case the previous review was archived.

See #2199.

In 4930:

Support Forums: Save bbpress()->topic_query object in Ratings_Compat::review_exists() and restore it in Ratings_Compat::add_topic_form().

This should prevent the query for the current user's review from being overwritten by the main query.

See #2199.

In 4934:

Support Forums: Change "Edit your own review" button label to "Edit your review".
