CommentLuv

Comments are a wonderful thing to receive on your blog, with CommentLuv for WordPress and WordPress MU you can give something back to your community straight away by including a titled link for their last blog post or tweet on the end of their comment.

The plugin fetches the feed found at commenters site URL while they type their comment and extracts the last blog post title with link and displays it below the comment form. When they submit their comment, the last blog post link gets added on the end of their comment for all to see!

As a member of The ComLuv Network, you can register your site url and receive 10x the luv when you comment on enabled blogs and if you start a blog here, you can even add your twitter and digg accounts to your returned posts (or add more blogs, up to 5)

New2WP Author Box

What this plugin does is utilize the WordPress dashboard profile section, which is so very neglected to my knowledge. It will replace the Yahoo IM field that most people may find rather useless, with a Twitter field.

Authors can then add their Twitter name, if they choose, and using the other existing fields they can add their URL to their website, with a little blurb about themselves in the biographical info box, and obviously their email address. It’s very basic, but does the job for most multi-author sites.
