Support » Plugin: TwitterLink Comments » Suggested Improvements to TwitterLink Comments

  • Just some thoughts. Hope the plugin author will consider.

    • Twitter field in the user profiles, so that at least the admin can manually update their existing registered users. As you can see, the twitter field (at least in my case where I installed the field manually) is not visible for logged in users.
    • In line 278 where the plugin chops off the ‘@’ and ‘’ entries, it should also include (or chop off) ‘’ entries.
    • At least include in the documentation that for manual installation of the twitter ID field like me, other than the name="atf_twitter_id" attribute to add in the input field, you can also add value="<?php echo $comment->twitlinkid; ?>" so that for returning commentators they don’t have to reenter their twitter ID (just like name and email)
    • The plugin should not save Twitter ID’s of those accounts whose comments were not approved or were caught in spam. This is a problem since all spam comments who entered the Twitter ID’s are saved in the database, and in the long run could bloat the database.

    If I could come up with other suggestions I’ll just add in the replies. Yet, this is a great plugin that I’m glad it exists.

  • That last suggestion is a good one. I had not thought of that and it could mean hundreds of extra entries per week on my site.

    I was thoroughly enjoying and getting to grips with this plug in but then a commenter added his website into the twitter link box and caused me a lot of work to try to amend this.

    I deleted then reposted his comment but the twitter link picked up his website again.
    Can you create a way to be able to edit twitter name as I have had to deactivate the plugin for now.
    People do make mistakes like this and it would be best if admin can edit and correct (or remove if needs be) the commenters twitter name

    Many thanks
