WordPress Thread Comment… (New Hot Plugin Of The Month)

 by Kary Rogney

Thank you, thank you, thank you! Are in order for my friend Melissa Wright, a member of my Tribe community.

I’ve been looking for the answer to this challenge for months!

For a while I was running the Disqus comment system on my blog, but it wouldn’t allow for my Comment Luv plugin to work. For those of you that don’t know, Comment Luv puts the link to the latest blog post of a commenter under their comment. It’s a great way to say ‘thanks’ and allow for the backlink back to their blog.

What I loved about Disqus was the ability to nest my responses to comments right under the commenter’s comment. Well, I got rid of Disqus and brought back Comment Luv. The bummer with that was when I wanted to comment back it put my comments at the bottom of all the other comments and didn’t nest it with the matching comment.

If this isn’t making sense, I’ll show you in the video in a minute…

The reason that this is such a big deal is that you want to create an interactive blog, full of conversations and exchanges of ideas. That’s what gives a ‘social media’ blog its STICKINESS and keeps people there longer and enthusiastic to return!

So, if you have a blog, the solution is now here to be able to use Comment Luv and WordPress Thread Comment together for a powerful combination.

Watch here as I walk through how I’m using them together and configuring them.

Thanks for Retweeting and getting the word out on this great plugin!

    Thanks for the info Kary. I’m just getting started with my blog so

    just right because I was just about to add DISQUS and do have CommentLuv so
    this will save one headache :)

    Hey Kary!

    Thanks for sharing this plugin. This
    is an important post. It creates the
    conversation to go back and forth.

    Most people comment, then the blogger
    comments back… but then the person that
    commented never finds out.

    Great stuff bro!

    Great info Karey. I love the Comment Luv Plugin and think that it is such a great idea. I have been searching for a good Comment Reply plugin for WordPress and was having trouble finding one. As a professional web developer and have written loads of WordPress plugins myself, I toyed with the idea of just writing my own. But why reinvent the wheel, right? Anyway, thanks for the info and the feedback.

  • Posted by Creative Junkie on March 13, 2010 at 11:50 am

    I’d like to try this plugin but I was wondering if you could clarify something for me? When you respond to a comment, I understand that the plugin nests your comment under the comment you are responding to, but … will it also notify that particular commentator via email that you replied to his comment? Otherwise, how does he know that you replied to his comment without periodically checking back?

    Thanks for any information!

    Hi Kary,
    I have installed this. But, maybe my theme cannot support it.
    Cuz, when i reply to my friend comments the “Submit Comment” button not showing up. Wonder if I do something wrong to it.

      I’m not sure… Sorry to hear about your challenges.

        Hi Kary,
        It’s okay. I think the theme itself won’t allowed it.
        Thanks. Will try to find a way to make it happen. :)
