WordPress Paged Comments Plugin

This plugin is no longer being developed. WordPress has had paged comments support in the core since version 2.7. The comment paging you see here is using WordPress’s built-in code and not my plugin.

Paged Comments is a plugin for WordPress to allow comment paging. Useful for those popular blog entries receiving many comments, or a simple guestbook page within WordPress.

Features

  • Comment ordering: show latest comments first, or last
  • Specify number of comments to display per page
  • Enable paging for all posts and pages, or on a per-post basis
  • Give users the choice to view all comments on one page with a ‘show all’ link
  • Specify the first or last page of comments to load by default
  • See paged-comments-config-sample.php for more

Download — Latest Version

Installation (for WordPress 2.3 up to 2.7)

If you’re upgrading from a previous version, skip these installation steps and read the upgrade steps. Note: WordPress’ automatic upgrade feature will erase the plugin’s config file. If you’re going to use it, make sure you backup your paged-comments-config.php file first.

  1. Download and extract plugin files to a folder locally.
  2. Read through and edit paged-comments-config-sample.php to configure, then save the file as paged-comments-config.php.
  3. Upload the whole paged-comments directory to /wp-content/plugins/. The plugin files should now be in /wp-content/plugins/paged-comments/.
  4. Enable the plugin through the WordPress admin interface. That’s it!

Optional Steps

  • WP 2.7 users: If use_wp_config is set to true (default), you can make changes to the plugin config using the WP admin interface. Go to Settings > Discussion and look under ‘Other comment settings’.
  • To customise the template to work better with your theme: Open the plugin’s themes folder and find the subfolder corresponding to the WordPress theme you’d like paged comments enabled on (or if your theme isn’t listed, choose the ‘default’ folder). Upload comments-paged.php to the appropriate WordPress theme folder (found in [wordpress]/wp-content/themes/).

    For example, if you’re using the default WordPress theme, copy [paged-comments-plugin]/themes/default/comments-paged.php to [wordpress]/wp-content/themes/default/. (The plugin always tries to load comments-paged.php from your active theme folder first.)

    Make any modifications to comments-paged.php. The file is based on the comments.php file, so if your theme is very different it might be easier to copy in the necessary elements from paged-comments.php. View the diff report to see what you need to change.

Examples of Use

The comments on this page are handled by the plugin, but it’s also used by the following sites:

    Hi Keyvan,

    I love your plugin and it is an integral/crucial part of my site. I am using it as a “guestbook” of sorts for people sending my twins prayers for a cure to their horrible disease.

    Is it possible to create multiple instances of the paged comments that share all of the config information but not the same page template?

    Since my guestbook is configured to change the word “comments” to the word “wishes” (in the paged-comments template) when I turn on paged-comments features on other pages the same word changes apply.

    I tried to create a “new” template with the “original comment language” and I could not figure out how to make it work.

    Before I spend a great deal more time trying to engineer a solution, I was hoping you might steer me in the right direction (or tell me that it is impossible/difficult)…

    Seems like this should be pretty simple and someone has probably done this before…

    Thanks a million in advance!

    Hugh

    Hi Keyvian, my Webmaster Tools is telling me that I have a lot of pages with the same title, I was investigating and they are talking about the different pages of the comments that shows the same title. (“Post Title | Blog Title)
    Is there a way to include a line in the header to show “Post Title – Page 3 | Blog Title”.
    I use the format “else if…..” in the title tag…
    Thanks. Great Plugin!!!

    But I have a little problem: Descending order does not work — neither when set in the *-config.php nor with custom keys.

    Hi Keyvan, while your plugin worked perfectly. Sadly it conflicted with other wordpress plugins and as a result made chitika.com’s related products unit and rmarsh.com’s similar posts plugins disappear completely in Firefox 2 and Internet Explorer 7! 🙁

    That might be something to look into.
