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.
