jnm_recent_comments_unique

My first plugin. (excuse me for my broken english :) )

Description:

<txp:jnm_recent_comments_unique /> is similar to txp:recent_comments. It displays the latest comments with the following changes:

  • It only displays one link per article with the number of comments enclosed in parenthesis.
  • It display the names of latest commenters (optional)

You can use the standard txp:recent_comments options (label, break, wraptag and limit).
You can also use the following options:

  • showcomments = Set to ‘y’ to display the commenters names. Default: “n”
  • commbreak = String to separate the article’s link from the commenters names. Default: ”@<br/>@”
  • commseparator = String to separate commenters names. Default: ”, ”
  • commlimit = Display as much as this commenters. Default: 3
  • commclass = If included, the commenters names are enclosed with a div with this class attribute.
  • section = Restrict comments by this section. You can specify various sections separated by “,”
  • autosection = Set to ‘y’ to autoselect comments based on the section being displayed. Default: “n”
  • category = Restrict comments by this category. You can specify various categories separated by “,”.
  • autocategory = Set to ‘y’ to autoselect comments based on the category being displayed. Not valid inside an article page. Default: “n”
  • linktoarticle = ‘y’=article link links to article. ‘n’=article link links to latest comment. Default: ‘n’
  • commentscount = Set to ‘n’ to not show comments count. Default: ‘y’

Examples:

  • <txp:jnm_recent_comments_unique break="li" />

Display the latest commented articles in an unordered list.

Re: jnm_recent_comments_unique

Wow! You´ve read my mind! Thought about a plugin like this yesterday =)
Will try it and report back…

Edit: Question:

Can I choose to just display the latest commentators? Name but not the article name…

Re: jnm_recent_comments_unique

I don’t understand what do you want. Can you show me an example of output?

Re: jnm_recent_comments_unique

So, the last commenters with link to the comment and with repeated articles? I mean can Mattias and James be commenters of article1 and Robin of article2?

P.S. Is it commenter or commentator in english?

Re: jnm_recent_comments_unique

I remember looking for just this sort of thing a few months ago. This should come in very handy.

Yes :) Just the name of the person who posted the last comment. Is it possible?

My english is far from perfect so I don´t blame you…

Re: jnm_recent_comments_unique

Thanks for this plugin. It was a snap to setup.

You may want to add a functionality to restrict the returned commented articles by section(s). I could see that being very useful.
