Because the fetch_rss has a cache which it checks before it tries to open the remote feed, the last blog post will still be stored in the cache from the AJAX request so it wont need to do much at all to add the last blog post to the comment. sweet!
It’s installed and running ok here in it’s rough state so I can see how it performs while I neaten up the code so it can do all the includes and stuff automatically as well as detect another url change if the user changes their blog url after starting to comment.
At the moment it uses a bit of jquery and a bit of the AJAX goodness that you can see on the Beginners AJAX Tutorials posts, when I’ve figured out how to do it all with jquery and have it working nicely then I’ll release the new updated plugin.
It seems that a quiet Christmas morning is all that’s required to get an AJAX problem solved!
I’ll get used to jQuery and get some tutorials out there after the part 5 and 6 are done with the current series. Happy Holidays everyone!
You can always find the current version of CommentLuv here
(no AJAX in the current version yet…)
