Custom Comment Types - Facebook Comments etc. (4 posts)

    There are a number of services that pull comments into WordPress (Chat Catcher, for example). WordPress has comment types for 'comments' and 'trackbacks/pingbacks'. Are there any current projects underway that implement custom comment types? I have a user who would like to display Comments, Trackbacks, and 'Comments from Service X' on his posts.

    I've gone ahead and just created my own comment type, "ctrackback." Most of the WP functions can handle it just fine. It takes special coding to display in the theme, but it's still easy.
