UPDATE: coComment service is no longer operational, so this plugin is no longer of any practical use. The source is provided just as a reference for archives.
I’ve been using coComment for quite sometime now, have seen its pros & cons, it wasn’t upto the least standards that I’d have liked it to be at but everything improves with time and now it certainly is much much better than what it was when I started using it about a month or two back.
Presenting the iG:CoComment plugin, that will integrate coComment into your WordPress blog without any pain and frustration. 😉 Originally written for a friend’s blog to let him integrate coComment without modifying his theme templates, I decided that this plugin will indeed do good to a lot of others, so I’m hereby releasing it as a free software under the favoured GNU GPL. 🙂
Full instructions & other trivia are neatly packed in a README file in the download package.
For support (I doubt there will be any required) you can post comments here or post on its thread at the WordPress forums located at http://wordpress.org/support/topic/70960. But please don’t duplicate posts here and at the WordPress forums thread, have patience after posting your comment, I’m not around 24×7 checking my blog and/or WordPress forums. 🙂
You are welcome. Three cheers to the open source & free software!! 🙂
Duh, stupid me. Of course the title and permalink are going to change. Well, that rules out the external files, but it can still be put in the head.
Actually you can get at post content you cant normally get at in wp_head, you just have to pull it from $posts on your own. I did it in my meta keywords plugin. However, I don’t think you even need that.
I just changed:
And everything worked fine 🙂
Off-topic: You made a cocomment plugin but you dont use cocomment? Your replies aren’t showing up in cocomment for me 🙁
Yeah, but the possible gain that I can see is that the file will be cached for the post if its called again!! Not much(since its just a few lines of JS) but still something!! 😉
I use coComment & I’ve the plugin installed & enabled here as well, its just that I’ve turned off both the auto-enable & track-all comments features as both of them put a switch between the “Post Comment” & “Reset” buttons on my form & screws the layout. I’ll get around to fix it & then I’ll enable it. Though I’ve comment subscription facility so didn’t see any plus in enabling it!! 😉 But my blog is coComment compatible, fully(you can see the JS in page source). 🙂
looks like a nice plugin – but can you offer a link to a working example?
Ah, I didnt consider posts with comments turned off because I never do that on my site. Anyway, I am pretty sure the setting for that must be somewhere in $posts and should be available in the head.
No visual working example that I can provide for this. However, if you look into the source code of this page, you’ll see the script written in there by the plugin. This will be only useful if the commentator on your blog is logged into his/her coComment account.
You should consider it, when writing a generic piece of software that’s supposed to be used by anyone, you should think about all scenarios, saves lots of troubleshooting time!! 😉
Sure enough!! I’ll look into it more when I get time. 🙂
Thank you so much, people like you make wordpress awesome!
Thanks Terry!! 🙂
