Top Contributors

Description

Display your top commenters or authors in a widget, or you can display anywhere on your blog by pasting this code into your theme: <?php if(function_exists('jme_top_contributors')) { jme_top_contributors(); } ?>

Version 1.4 includes many user requested features. Check plugin webpage for details on the update.

  • List your top commenters or authors with the option to display their Gravatar, and several other options.
  • Choose from 2 formats of the widget, with complete control of styles via css.
  • Exclude users from the list by email address.
  • The list uses a cache system for improved performance. List updates only when a post or comment is added, or options updated.

Extra Feature

  • Add a special Icon next to each of your Top Commenter’s name in their comments to give them a little special recognition for being a regular contributor.

  3. Activate the Plugin via the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.

If you’re upgrading from a previous version, make sure to back up any customizations to “top-contributors/css/tooltip.css” file to prevent loss of custom formatting.

FAQ

The list says “No Commenters” now, but was working before

If you’re using the 3rd Time limit option “Only This week, month, year”. The comment count ‘resets’ at the start of each interval. So the start of each week/month/year the list will reset to 0. If you want a continuous list of the last 7 days, use “The Last 7 days” instead.
