About | Features | Pricing

This plugin will add an extra field to your comment form so a user can add their Twitter username. A user configured ‘follow me’ link is then displayed along with their details on all their comments.

The extra field and ‘follow me’ link can be configured using the settings page without ever needing to modify any template files. (unless you want to)

The blog owner has full control over the classes, HTML, link and message by using the settings page. (All options are passed through KSES using only basic HTML tags for secruity on Mu installs)

Here is how the plugin works

big thanks to the following beta testers

  • Add twitter field automatically -> Choose NO if you wish to add the field to your comments.php template yourself. (use name="atf_twitter_id")

  • CSS classes -> The name of the class to use for the DIV and INPUT. Only alphanumeric and hyphen characters allowed

  • Field Description -> Enter your chosen HTML for before and after the description (only certain HTML tags will be allowed)

  • Twitter link position -> Choose where you want the link to be displayed in each comment within the list of comments

  • Link Format -> You can configure how the link is shown here. [username] will be replaced by the Twitter username of the user. Choose to open the link in a new window and if the link uses nofollow or not


  • settings page

  • in use


WordPress : Extract the zip file and just drop the contents in the wp-content/plugins/ directory of your WordPress installation and then activate the Plugin from Plugins page.

WordPressMu : Same as above (do not place in mu-plugins)


Does this plugin add any database tables?

Yes. One table called (yourprefix)_wptwitipid is added

How do I uninstall this plugin and the database table it creates?

Just deactivate it and use the delete link on the plugin page to remove the saved options and database table. (please tick the box for table removal in the settings)

I already use wp-twitip-id, is this compatible?

Your exisiting db table for wp-twitip-id will be used. You may need to check your settings for automatic setting and adjust your link output changes you made in your template file.

Will this plugin work with Disqus/Intense Debate/js-kit?

This will only work with the standard WP comment form

How do I add the extra field in the profile page for the twitter username for registered users?

I am having a problem getting it to work
