Comments Evolved for WordPress
[resolved] A few more minor tweaks :) (22 posts)

    OK, here's my list and a few you already know, I think.

    1. Set the default tab
    2. Order the tabs
    3. Add some header text above the entire comment block - the reason I mention this is alot of people won't know what to do when faced with multiple options and likely leave without a comment.
    4. Perhaps ability to add a Label under the tab icon - some people aren't as clued up to what the mean - it's true, we're not all Social Butterflies :)
    5. Would be nice to highlight the tab icons with recognisable colours and colour draws the eye's attention i.e. easier to identify Google+ by Red, FB by Blue, Disqus ... maybe that's Light Blue, WordPress and Trackback I have no idea but you see what I am trying to say? Even an option to do this might be better so Minimalists can keep it like it is now. Though if you're using GenericIcons or whatever those Vector Icon Doodads are called then I think you can just style the colour using CSS, yes?

    That's it for me now :)

    Yeah, I had a comment responder just 30 minutes ago who came to my http://www.geekandjock.com site wondering where to go to reply to a WP comment notice she got in her email. :)
    Goes to show you gotta make this easy to understand and give instructions if you can.

    I agree too.
    Just another thing : we don't receive any notification by G+ when a vistor comment by this way. I think it's dangerous...

    A tweak about notifications

    When there is a comment made with gg+ or FB there's no notification ?

    I confirm not.
    Don't receive any notification from FB or G+.

    @4h18 you should file a bug with google+ then as to why things shared with you do not trigger the big red number to increase on the top right of nearly every google page

    Cool - though in my opinion (on my site anyways) the CSS styles look freaking horrid :)

    Cleared all caches and now rechecking the CSS changes that were made but the WP comments really do look poo.

    Looking at the comments for, example, http://www.geekandjock.com/searching-for-the-one now shows squashed avatars and the lack of any styling is still the same as before.
    I thought you were looking at that but I think I misunderstood what you indicated.

    @martin ok, 1.4.1 pushed that should fix up the tabs at the top not looking correct and the squishing of the avatars ... I'm working on fixing the normal wp comments now for a 1.4.2 update

    This plugin is designed so much better than what I had in mind. Thanks!

    Can you add a configuration option? Google+ started on 6/28/2011. On my blog I only want the G+ tab to appear on or after that date (giving priority to displaying the older comments), so I've added the following logic to the container file:
    foreach ($tab_order as $tab) {
    $displayTab = true;
    $date1 = "2011-06-28"; // G+ started 6/28/2011
    $date2 = $post->post_date;

    if (($tab === 'gplus') && ($date2 < $date1)) $displayTab = false;

    if ($displayTab) {
    ...

    It would be great to just have this as a checkbox config option. My blog goes back before Facebook also so I'm debating whether I should do the same for facebook (September 26, 2006)
