This plugin displays the most basic of quicktag buttons on your comment forms, using the Quicktag API built into WordPress (as of 3.3). No jQuery needed.

- Install and activate the plugin.
Why did you do this?
Because I needed a simple plugin to do this job and decided to do it on his own. Since the Quicktag API is build in this plugin is very lightweight.
After careful consideration those are the only ones they ever use! If you have a reasonable argument why I should add in others, I’ll listen. Thus far, the only suggestion interesting was ‘code’ and I determined people won’t use that unless they know about it, and thus are capable to entering it manually.
No. I don’t have a need for it, and I don’t want to include code I’m not going to personally make use of. It makes it much harder on me to support it later. (Read Herbert Hecht’s article “Rare Conditions � An Important Cause of Failures” to understand my views on including rarely used code. tl;dr: I try not to.)
Does this work on Multisite?
Yes. It can be network activated or per-site, works fine.
Will you expand this to BuddyPress?
Not at this time.
