New Feature: My Comments

One thing that became pretty apparent after we launched the Tag Surfer, people were going to start leaving a lot more comments on blogs they may not visit regularly and it’s a real pain to track followups to comments you’ve left on WordPress.com. (Or even remember what comments you left!)

Well we’ve got a little something new for you today. (Free!) In your Dashboard sub-menu you’ll see a new tab called My Comments.

When you click on this, it’ll show the comments you’ve made across WordPress.com, as well as the comment directly before yours and any replies to the post since yours. Posts with the latest replies are at top. If a comment thread gets really long we trim it and only show the latest stuff.

So check it out, and to celebrate why not find a blog or post with no comments (like on the tag surfer) and share your thoughts? It’ll make someone’s day and now you can easily follow the conversation from the comfort of your dashboard. :)

    Another great solution to a sometimes crazy problem!

  2. ranti

    This is a quite useful feature, especially for users who like to comment a lot. :-)

  3. bombie

    A feature that makes great sense.

  4. Elaine

    That sounds great – I have forgotten (sometimes) where I commented and this feature certainly helps! Thanks

  5. donal

    Cool. Kinda like CoComment just for WordPress.

    You realise I’m just doing this to test how long it takes to work? Cheers :)

  6. timethief

    Hi Matt,
    WOW! Changes, changes everywhere and all of them good. I have a question: Is this new “My Comments” feature cumulative and archived so we can access it later? If so then we won’t have a need to continue to use cocomment for the comments we leave on fellow wordpressers blogs. Thanks for the innovation. :)

  7. Matt

    Yes it’s archived forever.

  8. bigcrow

    I noticed it before topic appears :P :P :P

    NIIICEEEE one, I always wantid something like that…

  9. donal

    And it works almost straight away!

  10. Matt

    Yes it should be instant, as soon as the comment is approved it’ll show up.

  11. Chris

    You must have been reading my mind. This is great!

  12. bigcrow

    Yeaah babe, shake it, shake it :dance:

    I really like it :D Can’t leave my eyes off :blush:

  13. bigcrow

    amm… Thank You again, I allways lost my comments…

  14. timethief

    Creating community and social networks a feature at a time, eh? This could be viral. lol ;)

  15. britgirl

    Brilliant! Now this is what I call useful. I even used it before looking at my stats! Nice one.

  16. צפריר

    This sure saves me a whole lot of rss feed consumption :)

  17. TheShortFatKid

    Purty cool!

  18. taraden

    This is another awesome feature. I tell ya…it just keeps getting better and better here a WP! Thanks a bunch!

  19. floatykatja

    Great feature. Would it be possible to have a feature where threads could be marked as read and removed from the dashboard, though? For those who comment a lot I can see that things could get pretty clogged up the way things stand.

  20. floatykatja

    Great feature. Any chance that we might be able to delete threads once we’ve read them, though?

  21. grinder

    you guys never cease to amaze me… thanks for this great feature…

  22. lotaenterprises

    cool very useful feature!

  23. Mr Angry

    Nicely done, another boost to stitching together a community.

  24. Jan

    Great – this is really usefull, and additionally it removed my fear that now there will be no more free upgrades and that we might have to pay for anything.

  25. Josh

    Awesome feature. :D

  26. Stephen

    Very cool. I’m seeing comments I completely forgot about :)

  27. outburn

    Does this feature also track trackbacks?

    How hard would it be to track comments that haven’t been approved yet? I’d like to see my comment (or possibly trackback) show up in my tracker the moment I send it or just a few minutes later, depending on implementation.

    But this is great, thanks!

  28. peteremcc

    This is great for the wordpress blogs but It would be cool if you include the CoComment plugin for people who use that as well.

  29. .i dream in red.

    cool!

  30. Goio

    Great job, love it very much… is this mean that comments can be read thru bloglines?

  31. Greg

    Brilliant.

  32. notapundit

    Well done. This is an excellent feature that will definitely make it easier and encourage wordpress.com users to post to other blogs.

  33. Thomas

    Thank you – really useful!

  34. Confused

    Very useful.

    Only one problem. It seems to track comments made on one’s own blog. Perhaps, you guys could try to get around that.

  35. JV

    Love you guys. Following your comments makes the blogging experince more fulfilling.

  36. Lindstrom

    This is great! Thanks guys.

  37. Zeezat

    Great Work! My Comment Feature is very useful to track the comment we made. Thanks a lot. Keep going with more features!! Best of luck!! bye!

    zeezat

  38. zelig

    Thank you, useful feature.
    Keep up the good work.

  39. secretmojo

    Brilliant

  41. Livia

    a coComment for WordPress…you rock Matt..great feature!

  51. capstan

    nice…

  52. Andrew

    Love how you guys are spoiling us with all these updates. Wonder if anyone will still doubt your commitment to improving WP.com in spite of the paid upgrades. Great job fellas!

  53. Someone who loves dogs

    Yes, this is a very neat feature. It certainly helps people share views easily and communicate better. Thanks, J.

  54. smartmobs2

    Hooray for walled gardens!
    Considering that WPMU keeps all it’s users’ data in separate tables, this is still quite an engineering feat! Bravo.

  60. allendale2

    Great idea! Myself I was wondering how to get comments posted elsewhere.

  61. bizwriter

    Great idea!

  62. ranting2006

    Yees! I saw this last night! That’s so awesome- thank you, Again!

  63. webmacster87

    What I think would be great is to now have this feature in a widget. You could add a widget to your blog to show others the blogs you’ve commented on, which could get other people interested in those blogs too.

  64. Chittaranjan

    Nice!

    thanks for yet another absolutely great feature.

  65. Shirley

    Matt, thank you. A cool, brilliant and absolutely helpful feature. Before now, I often completely lost track of sites on which I had commented. Love this.

    Blessings to all of us here at WordPress…and beyond. :)

    I would love it even more if I could get rid of threads that I don’t want to arhive.

    Thank you!

    This is a very useful feature…thanks!

  79. Michael Sync

    Cool features
    >>only show the latest stuff.
    It would be great if we have a way to go not latest stuff too..

  80. Lonviolon

    It’s pretty useful, but how can we get rid of the old comments we posted ? I mean when we don’t need them anymore ?

  81. Batio

    Thanks

    Yeah.. the comments arent getting tracked. Also, I am getting the comments written at my own blog space also listed, which I think is redundant :-)

  85. egana

    well, the problem of one’s own comments seems to be resolved, becasue I am not getting my own comments (from my own blog)…

    also, I am not having to scroll through weeks and weeks of comments, which is nice…

    thanks guys! I continue ot be amazed at all you do (and still free fo most of us!)

    the best and most beautiful things in the world can not be seen or even touched they must be felt within the heart… l.o.v.e

  87. larryjames

    I recently switched to WordPress.com from another blog (which shall remain nameless)! I am truly impressed with all the wonderful features that are available and the ease with which we can communicate to make our blog look terrific. Keep up the grrreat work you are doing.

  88. homeyra

    Thanks wordpress, I really enjoy beeing part of this community.
    In this new layout, I can’t find how I can edit my own comments.It was a useful feature as I could have corrected a typing mistake or add a link.

    Is there still a way to do that?
    Thank you again :)

  89. barnze

    Nice one!

  96. LDS Patriot

    I’ve been hoping for a feature like this. You guys are Pure Gold! ThankYouVeryMuch!

  97. biglaw

    An idea crafted with the greatest imaginativeness!

  98. E@zyVG

    Why not also integrate CoComment.com in wordpress.com!

    You can ofcourse install the Firefox plugin available from them, but having it in blog engine would be nice.

  99. mbrelax

    It’s great!

    I am indeed highly impressed with what i have seen at word press, I am into bloggingsince last August 2005, and blogs have become a vital part of my life in sharing a pictorial world that is human, the under belly of mans existence , pedestrian survival, and the world of ritualism, sufism , tansgenders hijdas, moharam, naga sahus, Ihave captured and without any reservation tried to link my unique overcovertly colored world with other bloggers..and the quest like the holy grail never ends…I have seen the sycophancy of cybernetic curiosity ,having srtetched this fabric of blog adventurism, in a short time, I am indeed prophecisizing that word press will in no short time become a powerful medium touching a lot of human life and human changes.. and this is my experience and inner gut feeling of 15 days since I signed up here.Yes I am impressed..and I write this at 3.30 am mumbai time .
