Comments are a wonderful thing to receive on your blog, adding the dofollow plugin is one way to reward but why not place a link to their last post under their comment, with CommentLuv, you can do that automatically! This is an excellent way to promote comments from your readers.

example:
Commentluv in action

The CommentLuv WordPress Plugin will visit the feed of the comment author and attempt to scrape the last post they made and display it under their comment, this way you can encourage people to join in the discussion of your posts and give something back straight away.

The plugin looks for a feed in the default location of your blog, for WordPress users this will be /feed/ or /?feed=rss, blogspot users get /feeds/posts/default, web-log blogs are now included thanks to Edward De Leau. If it can’t find a feed there then it will search your <head> part of your website for an alternate link (<link rel=”alternate”) and use that instead.

The plugin retrieves your last post at the time of the comment being posted and appends the extra text just before the comment gets saved to the database, this way it doesn’t put any extra load on the database or server other than the effort required add another 60 or so characters to the comment content.

  • Note:The plugin starts to add peoples last post AFTER it has been installed. Comments that were made before the plugin was installed will not show the authors last post. You can test it yourself by logging out of WordPress and adding a comment to one of your posts but, use a different URL for the website of the author (you can use http://www.fiddyp.co.uk if you like!)
