How To Save Time Replying To Comments

If you’re like me and love to reply to most of your comments you know how time consuming it can be. That being the case you will most likely love this next plugin, WP Threaded Comments. I was using this plugin before WP came up with it’s own version in the latest updates and I continue to use it because I like the way it’s structured when replying to comments.

You may be wondering what this has to do with saving time when commenting,  and the answer to that is it has other useful features which I will get to shortly. As most of you know every time you reply to a comment your whole page loads which not only takes time it also uses a lot of bandwidth not to mention uses a fair bit of CPU on your server. One of the unique features of this plugin is that no longer happens, once you’ve replied to a comment it appears withing seconds without loading the whole page. If you get a lot of comments you can imagine how much time it will save you.

*Time* Ticking away...But that’s not all. It has another cool and very useful feature. Linda from Linda Grace Online, in a comment today, asked me;

How is it that you send notice to my inbox everytime you answer my comments – with what you said and what I said? I see that I’ve clicked on the box to notify me of follow-up comments via e-mail (wasn’t that automatically clicked and I’d have to unclick it if I didn’t want to be notified?) I’ve clicked on other blog’s before and I was notified everytime anyone made a comment, I don’t want know every comment ever made on that post so I stopped clicking. I really like knowing what you comment back and I’d like to do the same thing on my blog… how would I?

Well, the answer to that is, wait for it, the WP Threaded Comments plugin. You can set it up so it’s ticked automatically or you can leave it up to the commentator. It also allows you to change the email message so that you can personalize it. Another cool feature is it allows you to delete comments without going to the dashboard.

If you think this plugin may be of use to you then you may want to head on over to Linda’s blog to thank her. You ,may find her post, How A $6 Mosquito Netting Prevents Malaria And Saves Lives, to be of interest as it’s outlays a very worthwhile cause.

Naturally there are those of you who may not want to use this plugin because your blog is already top heavy with them and you can’t bear to ditch one to replace with this guy. Well don’t worry, you can do the same thing from within the WordPress Dashboard by going to the comment section. I don’t know how long this feature has been there, I only noticed it the other day. Anyway, under each comment you will notice several links that will allow you to unapprove, reply, quick edit edit, spam or trash a particular comment. Well that reply option will do the exact same thing.

Hope you’ve found this post to be of use.

An Aussie Husband Shows His Wife He Cares

I don’t know what I would do without email. Sure I get a lot of spam and and heaps of people running one scam or other but I also get a lot stuff that makes me burst out laughing. This is one that I found to be extremely funny, but that may be because of my Aussie humor. I’ve posted it just as I received it. What do you think, did you find it to be funny?

A note from a compassionate, loving and caring Aussie husband…

LOOK AFTER YOUR WIFE…..

A couple of weeks ago, I was sitting on the patio, drinking beer and watching my wife mow the lawn.

Cheryl from next door saw us and was so upset that she came over and yelled at me, “You lazy prick! Sitting there drinking beer while your poor wife pushes that ancient lawn mower around! Get up off your fat arse and give her a break !”

I thought ‘Shit woman!’ Took another swig from my stubby, wiped the cold foam from my lips, lifted my sunnies, stared directly at this nosey cow and told her in no uncertain terms to sod off and mind her own business. I told her my wife had green fingers and that she really enjoyed gardening.

After a few days I felt really bad, so I went out and bought her a ride-on mower to show my sensitive side. I’m really proud of the deal I got and also very proud that my wife can now sit down while mowing the lawn. Yes guys, we should take good care of our wives… then maybe they’ll take good care of us.

I’ve attached a picture below…hope it comes through OK

Heck, if nothing else it shows off our Aussie ingenuity!

The Results Are In! Disqus Does Cost You Comments


I did a post not all that long ago that’s turned out to be one of my top ten posts. I conducted a poll on that post in order to find out whether or not Disqus was actually stopping people from commenting on blogs. To date I’ve had 105 people vote. The question asked was Have You Refrained From Commenting Because It Was A Disqus Blog? to which 55 (52%) replied no and 50 (48%) replied yes.

I find that quite staggering. You can almost say that there is a 50/50 chance that people are not commenting on a Disqus blog. So, if you’re starved of comments at the moment and you’re running Disqus, then perhaps you should rethink your choice of commenting system.

Some like DiTesco commented that they voted no, not because he liked Disqus, but because,

there are too many blogs that I like and belong to friends that are Disqus powered and I am taking that extra mile to comment.

Unfortunately not everyone is willing to go that extra mile. There were a lot more comments that you may find interesting, both for and against, but when you consider those results I’m glad that I decided against Disqus and stuck with the one that comes with WordPress.
