Extended Comments Widget


Download: Extended Comments Widget
Version: 0.1
Supports: WordPress 2.9 – 3.1

Extended Comments Widget is a plugin that displays extended comment information in a widget… it’s good to be obvious!

Features include:

  • Supplement the standard comments widget with extended information
  • Configure how many comments are shown
  • Exclude certain authors from appearing in the list (for example, exclude yourself)
  • Fully localized

In action this looks like:


Installation is like any WordPress plugin:

  • Download extended-comments-widget.zip
  • Unzip
  • Upload extended-comments-widget directory to /wp-content/plugins on your server
  • Activate the plugin
  • Add widget to your site from Dashboard > Appearance > Widgets

You can find full details of installing a plugin on the plugin installation page.


Configuration is the same as any widget – from the Widgets dashboard page, drag the widget to a sidebar and change the settings.

To ignore users just enter the user ID. You can specify multiple users by separating them with a comma. For example: 1,45,34

Support & Bugs

Support and feature requests should be made through the Extended Comments Widget support forum. You can contact me directly but I spend a very limited amount of time on direct support and you stand a better chance of being answered through the forum.

  4. I am running this plugin – extended comments widget, and I find that it does not link to the comment page, Instead it links to the post page.

    In blogs where there is point where a specified number of comments can be displayed per page, this widget does not work – and it links to the comment in the post page – where the comment may no longer exist.
