A new luv in my life


I’ve started coding the upgrade to my CommentLuv plugin, it’s going to be called CommentLuv 3.0 (original huh?) :)

More features than you can shake a stick at

This time around I want to do it all again from scratch and I’ve already got a good idea of what I’m going to add to it.

  • Dofollow
    Just for the last blog post link and it’ll be configurable like Lucia’s linky luv plugin
  • Keyword luv (sort of)
    This will allow a registered comluv user to have their registered site name next to their real name in their comment.
  • Custom CSS
    How many people have been asking for this? lol, it’ll be in the new version!
  • Use the new comment meta table
    I’ll store the last blog post, user id and request id in the comment meta so the comment text doesn’t get mangled and every link will be identifiable by the info panel. no more ‘cannot find member’ messages.
  • Auto registration
    Why not allow the blog that installs commentluv to click a button and be registered straight away? yey!
  • Premiumness
    I would like to add premium options, one would be to allow you to give your registered users a full 10 posts to choose from when they comment.

If there’s more you want to add, let me know in the comments…

[edit] I’ve just realized, this post is number 300 on this blog. Synchronicity. mmm Yummy.

Code, Wordpress

    Sounds really cool and I can’t wait for the update any news on a possible release date?

    I find that putting a release date or schedule on my coding will kill it dead! I am working on it every day when I can so as I complete each section, I’ll make a post.
    right now, I have the admin page links working with the new wp features so I’ll move on to getting all the settings pages looking nice and acting properly.

    next will come the features I mentioned. The less I have to do in real life, the more I’ll be able to do with the plugin :)

    thanks for your comment!

    thanks Dave! I’ve got much better php skills since the last major rewrite and I’m looking forward to putting them into action.

    Sounds like you have some great features planned. I especially like the sound of the premium feature you mentioned. It would be great to be able to choose which post is included since the latest post may not always be something you want added to your comment. Thanks for sacrificing your personal time to develop quality controls.

    I do not like the idea of Dofollow, and I intend to use the plugin on my site though.
    But I like the idea of my last article link puplished on other blogs so… I will use plugin as you use in your site, with nofollow

    commentluv is great , but im not getting some comluvs in my blog yet. I agree with the do follow and keyword feature, maybe an option to turn them off for people who dont want a do follow link.

    keep up the good work andy.

    Thanks for the list. Do you by any chance know if there is hope for the comment luv plugin to come to blogger?
