TwitterLink Comments Plugin Review
TwitterLink Comment is another hot plugin by the creator of the much loved Commentluv plugin, Andy Bailey, head of the ComLuv Network.
It’s quite customizeable but like commentluv, it works great right out of the box with no setting adjustments. It just works!
The plugin adds a light blue box under the comment box, where visitors can add their twitter ID. The ID only needs to be filled in once and then it becomes automatic for the visitor (unless they change their twitter ID).
You can download TwitterLink Comments here,
however it’s really quickest to just go Dashboard -> Plugins -> Add New -> Search -> TwitterLink-Comments -> Install/Activate.
For more info on the twitterlink comments plugin, check out it’s page.
Once the commenter has added their twitter ID, and submitted their comment, it will display like this:
Here you can see that it does not interfere with any of our other default WordPress commenting system plugins such as KeywordLuv. This plugin however has not been added by the commenting system replacement plugins such as Disqus and IntenseDebate (neither of which I recommend) or themes with such things built in. Other than that, it works with everything I’ve tested it against.
Just for reference this is what the settings (which I have left at default) look like.
Rating: (4/5) (This plugin only misses a 5/5 for this review because its “non essential”. It’s not as valuable to the commenter as commentluv/keywordluv and is subject to being a plugin that is likely to get skipped when we try to reduce the plugin count on a blog, even though it works great.)
This is one of those nice little, stable, set-it-and-forget-it type wordpress plugins that gives you yet another way to share the luv with your visitors!
