‘Comment Rankings’ WordPress plugin
I quickly whipped up a WordPress plugin to do something that I wanted, which was to display stars in a post’s comments next to the comment’s author. Each star represented 10 comments that the author had made on the blog so far; I find it interesting to see how many people in the, say, top 10 people that comment on a blog make up a large percentage of the total comments on a blog. (For those who are wondering, the top 10 commenters on my blog make up 67% of all the comments.)
You can see the plugin in action by simply looking at any of the comments on this blog. Here’s a screenshot, as well, just in case I ever decide to remove it from my blog:
Download the plugin
Click here to download the plugin. Download, extract, and upload the entire folder to your /wp-contents/plugins/ folder (so the final path should be /wp-contents/plugins/comment_rankings/) and activate it.
This plugin is also listed in the official WordPress Plugins database.
Now, back to our regularly scheduled programming.
