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. :)

    Mark,
    This is great and I wonder if it also works for comments/posts in WP forums?
    Would be great(er) if it did. ;)

    Great idea. I actually use CoComment on Firefox 2.0 Often I don’t use WordPress as a base for all my surfing but roll my own with various browsers, web aggregators,del.icio.us online bookmarks and Pageflakes personalized homepage.
    Sometimes being technically at sea I’m sure I do some odd things. Despite niggling annoyances ( I said I didn’t consider myself up to speed ), WordPress has made it possible to keep up a slow evolution of my blogging skills from pretty much zip.

    oooh. oooh. Is there any way that all comments made on my blog, by myself an dothers, can be kept opened up, and visible to all my readers automatically? As in, without having to click on the “2 COMMENTS” link to see my comments to each post. I want themt o be open at the end of the individual posts permanently. Is there a feature that allows that? Thanks.

    Oh oops. Sorry I just read that I should not use these comments for asking questions or getting support. *sheepish* Sorry. I’ll do it through the feedback form. Thanks. Sorry again.
