Search This have released a wordpress plugin called ‘Comment Info‘. The plugin provides statistics for your commentators. All you need to do is hover over the commentators name and the info box will appear.
Here’s how Search This’s explaination of how it works :
When you mouseover a commenter’s name you will see a tip appear displaying some information about that given commenter. The tip will display 1 of 4 results:
1. If the commenter has only posted once then it will say so in the tip (see number 1 in the legend below).
2. If the commenter has posted more than once we will look up the last three posts they have commented in and display links to those posts. This allows you to see which type of posts this user is interested in and easily navigate to those posts (see number 2 in the legend below).
3. If the commenter has posted more than once we will attempt to search their RSS feed and show an excerpt from their last post (see number 3 in the legend below).
4. If it’s a pingback or trackback the tip will indicate so (see number 4 in the legend below).
I really like this plugin, it’s informatitve yet discreet and doesn’t require you to edit your template in any way.
I’ve installed it here so you can see what the plugin is like live. Thanks to Chris Garrett for the heads up 🙂
