Life is a series of choices. Every step is a choice, an option, a decision. We try our best to make these choices based on what we know. What we pick may not be based on what is right and what is wrong, but what we believe in our minds and hearts. Whatever we do decide, we have to compromise. It is always one or the other.

Top Commentators

I was looking at an article in LifeHack that has some very useful WordPress plugins. I hurried on over to check them, the one that fascinated me the most was the Show Top Commentators plugin by Nate. I downloaded it, installed it, only to find out it didn’t support widgets!

I googled, and hacked the original code and enabled widget functionality. In an effort to contact the creator and inform him of this change, I googled, and came across a widget enabled version of the plugin; “Top Commentators” by Webgrrrl.

In the end keeping my version, only because I ran into a few database errors while trying to install Webgrrrl’s version, even though it has all options in the Widget Sidebar Arrangements page.

My Version: Show Top Commentators Hacked
Webgrrrl’s Version: Top Commentators
Original Version: Show Top Commentators

    Agree with you. Top commentators widget helped me a lot in getting loyal reader and higher comments numbers with increasing rss subsribers daily.

    How do i put the blog comment approval on my myspace to approve blog comments before posting them?

    How much has your subscriber based increased as a result of using this plugin? I can see the benefit from the commentators point of view, but have seen no proof of the benefit to the bloggers themselves.
