Now You Can AutoFill The Comment Form
of WordPress Blogs Using The
“Easy Comment” Firefox Addon!
Now you can fill out the details section of any standard comment form on WordPress with the simple click of the Easy Comment Button!
When I’m in the mood to comment on a bunch of blogs, the LAST thing I want to be doing is re-typing the same information, over and over!
I HATE doing repetitive stuff over and over if there is ANY alternative that saves me time, energy or monotony!
So when I came across this awesome free add-on for Firefox I had to show you my cool new toy!
The add-on is called “easyComment” and is available in the Firefox add-on repository here (English version).
(I suppose I should point out that you’re going to need the Firefox browser for this… and if you don’t have it go get it! Seriously!)
How To Setup & Use the Easy Comment Firefox Addon!
1. Download/Install Easy Comment From Here. (Will need to restart Firefox.)
2. Down in the bottom right corner of your browser’s footer toolbar (aka “status bar), you will now see the word “easyComment”
(unless you named it something else in step 3). This is where the add-on actually runs.
3. RIGHT click the easyComment (the word itself) and you will get a menu that looks like this.
4. In this right-click popup menu for easyComment, select Advanced -> Options.
Once Options is opened, you can set the name that easyComment will display with in your footer bar AND the hotkey. Now, I cant get the hotkey working, I believe its conflicting with another of my plugins but it does the same as clicking the title in the footer will after we set it up. I don’t really miss it, the addon is still gold without it. (Hit the return to main window button when you’re happy with the settings.)
5. Again open the right-click menu by right clicking on the Easy Comment link in the browsers lower bar.
This time, you want to open Easy Comment’s “Manage Profiles…”
Here you want to fill in your Name, website url and email as you use it when you comment on blogs. (Leave the Comment box empty & When finished click the “Return to Main Menu” button).
7. Now go visit a blog!
(If you were already on one you MAY need to refresh the page for the new settings to work). Once your in the comment section of the post you want to comment on, simply click (left-click) on the word ‘easyComment’ in your browsers footer bar, and “magically” your details will fill themselves in thanks to Easy Comment.
If it works for you, the hot-key combination we set earlier would likely be faster/easier than that too!
