Meet your commenters

When someone comments on your blog and writes a comment with his/her URL, is leaving more information than you think. This wordpress plugin displays web pages and profiles of those users in the dashboard, so you can add them as friends if you are in the same social network. You will be able to know the profiles of your visitors in social networks like flickr, twitter, facebook,…

Preview

This is possible thanks to the Google Social Graph API. The profiles are showed because the commenter claims them as its owner on his web linking them with `rel=”me”`. The ones which are with italic font are not reliable and they could not be of the user.

How to install:

1. Extract and upload the directory meet-your-commenters to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
2. Activate plugin
3. That’s all

Requirements

  • WordPress 2.5 or better
  • allow_url_fopen option or cURL enabled

Edited:
- Thanks to Rick for the patch to allow cURL.
- Added compatibility withWordpress 2.7 with the 1.1 version of the plugin

  1. Amigo la idea del plugin me encanta, pero lamentablemente Dreamhost no tiene habilitada la opción “allow_url_fopen”, por lo que se complica la instalación. Es más, esta es la recomendación que publican en su Wiki (http://wiki.dreamhost.com/index.php/Allow_url_fopen)

    “Enabling allow_url_fopen is a terrible idea that exposes your website, and the websites of others on your shared server, to unnecessary risk.”

    Hay algo que se pueda hacer con esto?
    Saludos.

  2. I have the same issue … The idea behind this plugin seems to be great!!! But I’m with Dreamhost too , and I think this is why it’s hangs when I try to access the dashboard …

  3. Hola Berri

    He creado un parche con una comprobación para que use cURL si esta disponible. Comprobado que funciona en DreamHost personalmente :)

    http://code.jinlabs.com/meet-your-commenters-curl.patch

    Saludos y felicidades por el plugin

  4. @MP3d: Bueno, esa recomendación es un tanto alarmista, más que nada para que la gente no se ponga pesada y les de la chapa pidéndoselo. Aunque si haces programas tan malos como el que ponen en el ejemplo, si es cierto que te pueden liar alguna. De todos modos y gracias al compi Rick, no han pasado ni 24 horas y ya tienes el plugin arreglado y compatible. Con lo vago que soy yo, ponerme solo me habría costado otra semana ;)

    @k: Your problem is solved, tray downloading it again.

    @Rick: Mil gracias Rick! Lo he agregado al plugin para la gente no tenga problemas. Me has ahorrado un trabajito… Felicidades a ti!!

  5. great! it works prefectly now…

    very good job, thanks

  6. Deberías hacer un ‘versión bump’ y subir la versión del plugin, aunque sea 0.9.0.1, que así ya avisa el WordPress de que hai versión nueva :)

  7. Gracias Rick. :=)

    Berri, excelente trabajo. Lo probare en otros blogs y lo anunciare en MP3d en estos días.

    Lo que dices de Dreamhost es cierto, son alarmistas y últimamente como servicio de hosting, bastante flojos, por no decir mal..o..s.

    Saludos y felicitaciones por el blog.

  8. hello,

    I have a database problem

    The plugin complains :
    [Table 'foobar.wp_comments' doesn't exist]

    where my value for tableprefix is set in config.php to cv_ and not to the default value wp_

  9. Hello;

    Found the error in sql line 67 ( commentRes ) where wp_comment is hardcoded

    Now I have the following error :

    Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class services_json in /foo/bar/wp-content/plugins/meet-your-commenters/JSON.php on line 116

    Luc

  10. Hello

    Solution found, apparently json was installed on my 2.5.1 install (perhaps another plugin or default install.)

    So commenting
    /require_once ‘JSON.php’ (near the end of the file)

    And the plug in runs fine

    Hope this helps

    Luc

  11. Berri, para solcionar el error del table_prefix basta con usar $wpdb->comments en vez de wp_comments ‘a machada’, así el WP ya se encarga de poner el prefix adecuado.

    Como ya estoy imparable con el SVN te dejo el mini-chorra-partch:
    http://code.jinlabs.com/meet-your-commenters-prefix.patch

    Saludos

  12. Works great. Really a great idea and very good implementation of it. Its really a good way to discover new blogs and also to social network with new visitors to your blog. Thanks for developing a good plugin.

  13. Listo Berry, probado y funcionando en version WP 2.5.1 y con hosting de Dreanhost.

    Saludos y gracias.

  14. hey pal! for some reason, the widget on the dashboard won’t show anything. and when I access the MYC page, I have to browse to the second page to start seeing my commenters. Is this right?

    nice job anyway, the plugin is great! =D

  15. Un plugin fantástico. Lo acabo de instalar y funciona a las mil maravillas.
    Saludos!

  16. I have installed it and activated it on my site…it comes up with a link to visit it in the backend of my site however when I click the link the widget on the dashboard doesn’t show anything at all but next and previous buttons…I have scrolled and scrolled through these buttons but nothing shows up. Looks like a great module…any suggestions as to how I can get it to work for me?
    I am with dreamhost. thanks in advance
    :)

  17. Muy bueno el plugin… Excelente idea!

  18. @k: Thanks for you!

    @Rick: Gracias por todo. Soy un poco vago con eso de las versiones. Pero a ver si arreglo lo del prefix, y te prometo que cuando lo haga subiré versión. Un saludo.

    @MP3d: Me alegro de que ya funcione ok. Y gracias por el post!

    @Luc: I’ll update to a new version that fixes this problem soon. Thanks for reporting the bug.

    @moserw: I am glad you like it. Thanks!

    @hanok: Gracias por los alagos ;)

    @flabuless: I don’t know what can happens, but I’ll try to reproduce and fix the bug.

    @wpGuy: Muchas gracias a tí también!

  19. Great plugin, had the same like Luc (#9), removed the require_once ‘JSON.php’, now it works fine.

    Would be nice if i could see on what blog posts the commenters commentet. :)

  20. Ok, now I’m so busy, but I’ll fix it soon.

    I like the idea, I’ll try showing on what blog posts the commenters commented in the next version.

    Thanks for all Daniel.

  21. Me encanta saberlo..pero hay un problema…y si no comentan pero hay visitantes asiduos….està dificil no??

    Saludos

  22. Muy buen plugin, seria genial que aparezcan la info. al costado de cada comentario, como dato adicional para todos los que comentan, es una idea.

    saludos

  23. Hi, i’ve the same bug that Flabuless. Same description : “I have installed it and activated it on my site…it comes up with a link to visit it in the backend of my site however when I click the link the widget on the dashboard doesn’t show anything at all but next and previous buttons…I have scrolled and scrolled through these buttons but nothing shows up.

    Thanks for your help.
    Great plugin, it seems.

  24. No puedes empaquetar el plugin dentro de dos directorios como lo tienes ahora (e.g. meet-your-commenters/meet-your-commenters/) ya que el WP no lo pillará. Y esto es más importante ahora, ya que casi todo el mundo actualizará automáticamente desde el WP y no podrá ver el plugin instalado…

  25. Same problem as this – would really like a solution!
    “I have installed it and activated it on my site…it comes up with a link to visit it in the backend of my site however when I click the link the widget on the dashboard doesn’t show anything at all but next and previous buttons…I have scrolled and scrolled through these buttons but nothing shows up.

    Thanks for your help.
    Great plugin, it seems.”

  26. Great plugin is there anyway to display this as a public page on your site, think that would be cool!

  27. how to remove “Meet your commenters” plugin?

  28. To remove the plugin do it from plugins dashboard or delete it from your host

  29. Hay una nueva version del plugin compatible con WordPress 2.7

    There is a new version of the plugin compatible with WordPress 2.7

  30. I have an issue when it is install on my WP 2.7 dash

    Warning: extract() [function.extract]: First argument should be an array in /xxx/xxx/public_html/wp-content/plugins/meet-your-commenters/meet-your-commenters.php on line 55

    Any ideas?

  31. How do you deactivate the plugin. I don’t see it on the plugin list.

  32. @Chris The problem is fixed, download new version again and reinstall it please. But I recommend you to turn off PHP errors.

    @Kene You can deactivate de plugin from plugins dashboard. If you can’t, you should remove the file from your server and WordPress will uninstall it.

  33. At my meet your commenters widget at my dashboard apeeras this error:
    Warning: extract() [function.extract]: First argument should be an array in /home/diegolopes/public_html/blog/wp-content/plugins/meet-your-commenters/meet-your-commenters.php on line 55
    what I should to do?Please answer by mail too if you can…

  34. DiegoLopes: Completely uninstalling and reinstalling the plugin removed the error for me.

  35. me encanta este plugin :P
    lo instalé sin problemas y funciona de maravillas.. gracias!

  36. faaantastico!,me encanta este plugin… lo instalé sin problemas y funciona de maravillas.. gracias!

  37. Where can I find or change this Whallow_url_fopen` o cURL activado?

  38. I used to have this plugin installed, and I really miss it. I just tried to re-install it, and on activation I received this message:

    The plugin does not have a valid header.

    And like others have mentioned, the plugin does not appear in my plugins list, meaning that I have to login via ftp in order to remove it, then I need to delete any database fields it’s created. Disappointing.

  39. Hola, interesante el plugin ¿funciona en versiones superiores de WordPress? Saludos

  40. I also just tried installing Meet Your Commenters on WordPress 2.8.4, and got this error message:

    “The plugin does not have a valid header.”

    The plugin didn’t appear in my plugins list, either when I manually uploaded the file or when I tried installing it via WP’s Add New plugins feature.

    I’ve heard great things about this plugin, and am looking forward to the fixed version.

  41. The default compile of php no longer installs a php.ini file so there is really no way I can directly add `allow_url_fopen` option that I know of. Can you educate me? I click on the link to Rick’s cURL patch and it does not seem to exist on his site.

    I am running php5 and mysql5 with WP 2.9. I first installed this plugin with 2.8.4 and it has never shown up in my installed plugin list and never shown up in my dashboard. In other words, it has never worked.

    Any help appreciated.

  42. I’ve just upload the new versión of the plugin to WordPress.org, I hope it will fix all your problems.

    Regards and thanks for the feedback ;)

  43. Olá.
    O plugin funciona perfeitamente… mas apenas aparece o MEU perfil e não o dis visitantes. Que pasa?

  44. I have a database problem

    The plugin complains :
    [Table 'foobar.wp_comments' doesn't exist]

  45. If you give me all info as you can for bug reports, it will be easier to help you.

    @topcentech Please, upgrade to the last version.
