Base pipe provided by BloggerSentral, date limit feature by Pehpot’s husband, long-winded [but NOT boring!] story HERE) that you can use to display the top commentators of your Blogger blog and give some some love to people who love you the most or use for a contest you’re holding. The features?
- It ACCURATELY displays the top commentators from the last FIVE THOUSAND (5000) comments of your blog.
- You are allowed to exclude THREE commentators of your choice (Anonymous is already excluded).
- You can set the number of names to display on your sidebar and commentators’ links are linked to URL provided.
- You can set the date for inclusion and exclusion (i.e. you want the list to show ONLY the top commentators for the whole month of January).
HOW TO INSTALL THE TOP COMMENTATORS WIDGET ON YOUR BLOGGER BLOG:
- Go to Layout and click Add a Gadget.
- Don’t forget to type in an appropriate title in the gadget box, i.e. Top Commentators or They Love Me Most, whatever floats your boat.
- Hit the delicious orange SAVE button.
EDIT ONLY THE FOLLOWING PARTS OF THE CODE TO REFLECT YOUR OWN SETTINGS:
YourBlogUrl= <- Your Blog address
&ExcludedNick1= <- 1st name to exclude from the list
&ExcludedNick2= <- 2nd name to exclude from the list
&ExcludedNick3= <- 3rd name to exclude from the list
&ShowHowMany=10 <- Number of commentators to show on your list
&ExcludeCommentsBefore=01-01-2011 <- This is the start date
&IncludeCommentsBefore=01-31-2011 <- This is the end date
That’s it! Easy-peasy, huh? And yes, I believe this widget IS the most ACCURATE there is nowadays, all thanks to Greenlava and Pehpot’s husband. I cannot thank you both enough! You’re a love! For any questions, feel free to comment below!
Above widget is free to use. All I ask is that you do not remove the credit at the bottom of the widget so that other people may find it and use it for their own blogs.
