    I posted this on the developers site, but there has been no response, sadly. Does anyone know or can show me how to show comments only from selected categories with this plugin.

    TIA

    I've listed your request as a feature request. It should not be difficult. I'll try to work on this.

    Note, this is not part of 1.1.4 released today. 1.1.4 just contains minor cosmetic changes.

    I like where this is going!

    I don't know a thing about plug-in architecture so if I say something too difficult then I understand it may not be possible.

    1) Most people come to my website via a search result. So I second the previous request. I would like this to only display the thread of comments within the category that they are currently viewing.

    2) Is it possible to have a snippet or use the meta description in addition to the title on the list?

    This would be great! Thanks!

    It's a feature request:

    1- add gravatar support
    2- show extract of comment
    3- reply now link on each comment

    Think about it ... since 2.7, the above is already available in the core. Adding these extras to BT active discussions makes it into a mini forum discussion board.

    This plugin works fine on latest 2.7

    I have made some simple hacks to show the complete comment text as well as the title, following my thoughts in the above comment. Can someone show me how to truncate comment text to say 100 characters?
    Im using '" . $comment->comment_content . "' in the template to get the text

    also trying to add avatars to the commenter name, but not succeeding ...
