Shortening long comments. (4 posts)

    Is there a plugin that can shorten very lengthy comments? For example, there is a decent thread underway, and suddenly someone posts a comment that is, in effect, pages long.

    For example, long URLs are truncated in my blog. Is there a way to do the same with lengthy comments?

    I had a similar problem with really long comments in some of my posts and that's why i made Collapsible Comments plugin. It shows the excerpt of each comment which now are collapsible and you can open each one by demand.

    But it doesn't "shorten" them, it just loads them all and hides them till you click each one you want to open it.

    With respect to truncating long URLs in comments it seems to me that whooami wrote a plugin for that very purpose called WP Chunky or Chunk or something like that. Her blog is here. Actually she has a lot of cool stuff if you poke around.

    Yup, the chunk plugin is here:

    but from what I understand, it works with URLs only.
