WP Local Storage


This plugin can greatly improve the user experience for your blog, by automatically and periodically saving the “just typed comment” for your visitors (the content textarea input box in comment section). The just typed comment is saved into browser’s local storage system to prevent loss of any unsubmitted comment from your visitors and doesn’t require any backend support.

This is similar like WordPress can remember your Name, Email, Website in comment area for the next visit, but WP Local Storage plugin extends this into next level, it can remember the actual unsaved comment (i.e. before hit submit button) so even the browser is crashed before the user hit save, it is okay! When the user came back, all “just type comment” will be still in there.

Full Support is available at or


  • The visitor is making comment and the browser is crashed! No!!!
  • The visitor re-opened the browser, came back and found the comment still in there! Yay!!


  1. Download the plugin file and unzip it.
  2. Put the theme directory into $WP_HOME/wp-content/plugins/ the web server.
  3. Activate’ the plugin.


Does this plugin require MySQL to run in the server side? (site owner)

No, as the plugin name suggested, it uses browser’s local storage system. So just drop this plugin into plugins directory then all good.

Does this plugin require cutting edge HTML5 supported browsers to run in the client side?

No, not really. This plugin supports most mainstream browsers such as IE8+, Firefox3+, Safari 3+ so most of your visitors will be looked after.
