I’m proud to be the first to test out Matt’s new Sexy Comments plugin. Since the comments on a few of my stories have taken on feel similar to that of a discussion group, I was glad to see Matt working on a layout that allowed the user to personalize their comment by adding an avatar. Last evening we discussed it and I convinced him to turn the jazzed-up comments layout into a WordPress plugin so that the whole world could benefit from it. Apparently the poor guy stayed up all night working on it, although I don’t feel bad for him since he kept me up until 10:30 with constant billiards challenges and I had to be at work by 5:00 AM! Not to mention I’m mad because he never told me he was such a pool shark.
It gets the picture from Gravatar, so if you have not uploaded an avatar to the service, do so, and your picture will show up next to your comments. Thanks Matty for the great plugin!
