Description

New capability: write a comment

It will be nice if just some roles can write comments in our post. Will make more powerful and flexible (perfect for membership web sites)

Hi @colomet,

Thank you for this request! My apologies that it took so long to receive a response.

I've given it some thought, and I don't think this is something that should be added to WordPress Core. Comment settings control who can comment. If you select "Users must be registered and logged in to comment" then I think it will accomplish what you want. You could create a custom role for commenters, or just use Subscriber.
