"In-Context Comment" lets readers leave comments right next to the content being commented, instead of only at the bottom of the blog post
Comments are extremely critical for the success of a blog. All existing blog platform and commenting plugins only let readers add comments all the way at the bottom of a post, out of the context of the content in the post. When you write a long blog post with, say, 10 paragraphs, and readers are commenting on a particular statement or expression in paragraph 3, they have to scroll back and forth to read the context to figure out what the comments are about. The "In-Context Comment" plugin changes that: Now you can add an "In-Context Comment" icon using <in-context-comment:here:tag> (where "tag" is any word or words connected by hyphen ) at any place you want readers to comment on and they will be able to click and open a window to add comments right there, next to the context so other readers can see both the context and the comments in one glance. The comment window automatically closes when a reader clicks the cursor anywhere outside the comment window so it does not interfere with the reading.
This plugin can also help you grow your readership by posting the comments to the commenters' Facebook and Twitter status updates to bring in new readers to your blog. You can also configure the "In-Context Comment" plugin to automatically add a comment icon at the end of each paragraph that is longer than a certain number of characters. This auto feature is enabled by default with a minimum character count of 360. Please go to the plugin's Settings page to change.
