WordPress Plugin: Comment Info Tip

Introducing the Comment Info Tip Plugin

You asked for it – now you got it!

This WordPress plugin provides you and your commenter’s a bit of information on their posting stats.

How It Works
When you mouseover a commenter’s name you will see a tip appear displaying some information about that given commenter. The tip will display 1 of 4 results:

  1. If the commenter has only posted once then it will say so in the tip (see number 1 in the legend below).
  2. If the commenter has posted more than once we will look up the last three posts they have commented in and display links to those posts. This allows you to see which type of posts this user is interested in and easily navigate to those posts (see number 2 in the legend below).
  3. If the commenter has posted more than once we will attempt to search their RSS feed and show an excerpt from their last post (see number 3 in the legend below).
  4. If it’s a pingback or trackback the tip will indicate so (see number 4 in the legend below).

@Dave – I query by URL because the native functionality of WordPress is that it doesn’t create a link if they don’t leave their URL. So I want to follow the integrity of WordPress.

@ouni – That’s a good idea and I understand why you want that, but it all takes time and that’s something I don’t have a lot of at the moment.

Hello there!

Nice work, the plugin is awesome. I thinks is hardens the bondage between writer/readers, egg. sometimes it is faster than rss and blog agregators.

Can i localize it in bulgarian (cyrillic) language?

@velgn – sure, feel free to translate it – just be sure to link back to this one for the english version.

Hello,

very nice plugin :)

but, if we use the url rewriting (for url like 2008/name-article), the plugin show the url like ?the-id.

It is possible to change that?

I have used the plugin, it’s great, but I have a few questions.

1) The links to the posts are not set up for permalinks. The id=324 is coming through which I don’t like.

2) Could you add an options page where I can click if I do not want the excerpt but just the number of comments and links through to the last comments they have left.

For now I have uninstalled it because of the permalinks issue, but its a great idea and would love to see these improvements made.

13 Lola

Hmm.. it really don’t work for me. I don’t even see it.

14 Golgotha

Lola, not sure why. Can you tell us more.

The plugin looks good so is the site..thanks for the information,have a nice day

16 brainsolid

Great plugin, but it confront with smooth gallery. Your plugin use js, so it’s a cause of confrontation. But i use smooth gallery only on home page – maybe this problem can be solved if your js put only in comment page?

Congrats on the plugin…I’m gonna have to install that!

Hi there,

that seems to be a good plugin, but why is it trying to load the URL “/index.php?feed=rss” from my weblog (powered with s9y)?

Is it possible, that this plugin only works with WP-Weblogs because other weblogs don’t have their feeds at this special URL?

TIA
Papa Bodehase

great plugin but got a few problems with it, it’s slow to load (in fact some of my posters didn’t notice until I told them about and they waited a minute or two for it to load).
Other problem is that I get an error for one of the posters:
Warning: attempt to assign property of non-object in (my rss.php address) on line 440.
Any ideas?

24 Marek

Nice plugin, but seems to be not working on WordPress 2.6 ?? Please replay.

25 Golgotha

@Dingle – shouldn’t be too slow… That’s probably your host? You can see it in action here – is that too slow? I’m not sure what that other error is?

@Marek – Should work just fine with 2.6. There may be another plugin interfering?

26 Marek

OK, I’ll try to deactivate all plugins, but it works on 2.5 before… :(

27 Ute

I love your plugin!!! Well, but it seems it doesn’t work correctly on my blog and I don’t know, why???
Sometimes the last blog post of the commentators is shown but mostly it doesn’t appear, although they had commented a lot of times before. It would be great if you can help me…
Greetings from Germany, Ute

28 Sulcalibur

Does this work with WP 2.7? I’ve installed it but nothing seems to be happening. :(

Also, great plugin, thank you!

29 Golgotha

@Ute – It will try and pull the commentators last blog post from their RSS. It doesn’t likely work with ALL different blogging software. So depending on what blogging software the commentator is using it will or will not work.

@Sulcalibur – It DOES work with WP 2.7. That’s what we have here and it works just fine. You may have other code/plugins that are interfering?

30 Michael

Great plugin but it doesn’t seem to work on my 2.7. I’m work on localhost, could that be the problem? I’ve also tried deactivating all plugins still doesn’t work. Any ideas?

37 Alexandre

Don’t work for me, buuut, im found the solution for my problem just changed the follow lines:

In the comment-info-tip.js.php change

if (!defined(ABSPATH))
{
$directoryPath = dirname(__FILE__).’/’;
define(ABSPATH, substr($directoryPath, 0, strpos($directoryPath, ‘/wp-content’) + 1));
}
require_once(ABSPATH . “wp-config.php”);

to

$wp_root = ‘../../..’;
require_once($wp_root.’/wp-config.php’);

In get-comment-info-tip.php change

if (!defined(ABSPATH))
{
$directoryPath = dirname(__FILE__).’/’;
define(ABSPATH, substr($directoryPath, 0, strpos($directoryPath, ‘/wp-content’) + 1));
}
include_once(ABSPATH . “wp-config.php”);
include_once(ABSPATH . “wp-includes/rss.php’);

to

$wp_root = ‘../../..’;
include_once($wp_root.’/wp-config.php’);
include_once($wp_root.’/wp-includes/rss.php’);

Now its works fine

Also, very nice plugin, thank you!
