Adds a sidebar widget to show the top commentators in your WP site.
Obviously, you must be using WordPress on your site. Your theme must also support widgets (if unsure, check with the person who designed the theme). If it doesn't support widget, please use the Show Top Commentators plugin instead; it should work similarly to this widget.
None. Just follow the installation steps and and it is ready to run. Customization is not necessary if you don't want to bother doing so.
Go to your Widgets settings and click Save in the Top Commentators widget settings. Otherwise, please submit a report in the Support Forum.
The "specify number of days/date" value will ALWAYS be prioritized before the Reset Period dropdown options. Therefore, if you choose to use any of the dropdown options, make sure to leave "specify number of days/date" text box empty.

The easiest way to do this is: * Identify the CSS elements that exist around and within the Top Commentators Widget. You can identify the tags surrounding the TC Widget with the words "top-commentators" or "widget widget_topcomm". * You may or may not want to add a new CSS element specifically for the TC Widget. Get someone you know who's good with CSS if you're not comfortable doing this yourself.
By the way, if you want to tinker with the style for this widget's Gravatar, just add a class called tcwGravatar to your style.css file and add any CSS element to it. For the Award icon, look for the tcwAward class.
