Twitterlink Comments

November 18th, 2010

Your default comments form includes fields for a commenter's e-mail address, name and Web site, but these days many of us would also like to be able to share our Twitter usernames when making comments. Twitterlink comments will add the field to your form as well as post the username with a link to the account when someone makes a post. The settings allow you to determine where the link is placed, though it doesn't offer quite as much control as I would prefer.

You can let the plug-in handle everything or you can manually code your comments.php form to include the Twitter field. For this site I did that by adding the following code immediately below the code for the Web site field.

<p><input type="text" name="atf_twitter_id" id="atf_twitter_id" value="
" size="22" tabindex="4" />
<label for="atf_twitter_id"><small>Twitter ID</small></label></p>

Share and Enjoy:

  • Facebook
  • Digg
  • StumbleUpon
  • MySpace
  • LinkedIn
