Top commentators widget*

Who leaves you the most comments? Do you want to show them off? The widget I'm going to tell you about today does just that! And the neatest thing to me is when you click on their name it will take you either to their blog (if they're not on Blogger) or to their Blogger profile so it lets other people find them too!

Do you want one? Yay! I knew you would :) Here's what you do:

1. Go here

2. Click on the blue button that says Add To Blogger. More than likely you should click on the first button. The second button is for people who have more than 5000 comments and most of us don't have that many. MOST of us....some of you do :) If you do then lucky you and click on the second button!

3. A window will open. You are going to customize your widget.


     a) Put in what you want the widget title to be. On this blog it says "Those that give me love...Top commentators..."

     b) Put your blog URL where it says "Customize widget"


     c) Choose how many commentators you want to show


     d) Put your name in the spot that says "Filter your name" unless you want your own comments to be counted


4. Click "Customize" at the bottom of that window


5. Click "Add Widget To My Blog". A separate page should open asking if you want to add the page element. Tell it yes.


You can move it where ever you'd like it to be on your page. Be sure to save it when you're done. Now you have a neat little top commentator widget on your blog :)

*UPDATE: I no longer have this widget on my sidebar because I've changed comment forms and it no longer works with my comments. To learn about my new comment form, please see the **Blog Tip** titled IntenseDebate comment form.  4/10/10
