Summary of this tutorial:

Users can make mistake when commenting on your site. Allowing them a grace period like 5 minutes to edit their comments can save you time during moderation.

Most website owners do not know that you can allow users to edit their comments in WordPress.

There is a free WordPress plugin called Simple Comment Editing which makes it easy for you to allow users to edit their comments for a short period of time (5 minutes).

When I say it’s simple, it really is simple. You just have to install and activate it. That’s all.
