comment plugger tweak? (4 posts)

    I used the comment plugger hack found at http://wiki.wordpress.org/?pagename=Comment%20Plugger and after setting it up and testing it out, I realized that it lists the commenters for the current entry. Is there any way to tweak it so that it lists the commenters of the previous entry?

    This has been requested a few times, and if there is a fix, it has not been posted to these forums as far as i know. Sorry !

    Actually.. I could've sworn that I had a tweak for the hack. Because I used to have it set up so that it would do that: plug the commentors from the previous post. Or something. Okay, I found what I used to use (and now that I found it, I'm using it again) in my old my-hacks file. I found this tweak somewhere on these boards. Hope this is what you're looking for. This is what I use:

    function comment_plugger($show = 1, $limit = 0, $sep = ' - ', $none = ' none') {
    global $wpdb, $tablecomments, $id;
    $cid = ($show) ? ($id - 1) : $id;
    $request = "SELECT DISTINCT comment_author_url, comment_author FROM $tablecomments";
    $request .= " WHERE comment_post_ID='$cid' AND comment_author <> '' AND comment_author_url <> ''";
    $request .= ' ORDER BY comment_author ASC';
    $request .= ($limit > 0) ? "LIMIT $limit" : '';
    $commenters = $wpdb->get_results($request);
    if ($commenters) {
    $output = '';
    foreach ($commenters as $commenter) {
    if (!empty($commenter->comment_author_url)) {
    $output[] = '<a>comment_author_url.'" title="'.$commenter->comment_author.'">'.$commenter->comment_author.'</a>';
    if (is_array($output)) {
    echo implode($sep, $output);
    } else {
    echo $none;

    I have another question on this - i'm trying to use the comment plugger as a blogroll generator. So i'd like to pull the names of ALL commentors. Is this easily possible? It's what I [nievely] assumed the plugin did out-of-the-box.
