Have you ever had a lot of comments on a blog post and had trouble following the conversation? Now you can have no trouble at all, with my new WordPress Plugin – Comment Connection.
Comment Connection is a simple plugin that detects the @commenter reference in a comment and turns that name into a link to a previous comment. An example can be seen on this post. It works by filtering comments when they are printed, then retrieves the comment ID of the last comment made by the person being referenced. There is no modification necessary to make it work, and it will work with previous comments as well.
