RSS for Comments, WP Plugins and other Changes…

After some discussion I have added RSS feeds for comments.
Incidentally, if you don’t know what RSS is there are lots of good articles to get you started.

Also, I got rid of the music rating on the comment page. Everyone has been too kind and simply gave me fives. Unfortunately this was not helping with my goal of highlighting tunes that are most popular. So, in its replacement I am trying a different approach. I installed a plugin called Popularity-Contest that calculates popularity based on traffic. The most popular posts will show up on the right side of the page under ‘most popular post’. I still need to figure out how to flag most popular tunes.

So, while I’m at it, here is a list of the WordPress plugins that I use on this site:

  1. Popularity-Contest
  2. Akismet – Spam prevention
  3. Contact Form ][ – So you can contact me.
  4. Get Recent Comments – Used to display most recent comments – duh.
  5. Permalink Redirect – Permalink Redirect ensures that pages and entries are always accessed via the permalink. Otherwise, a 301 redirect will be issued
  6. podPress – Makes podcasting simple by automatically adding the necessary podpress elements to my RSS feed.
  7. Ultimate Tag Warrior – I use this to tag my posts and pages as I create them.
  8. Sociable – Makes it easy to link into social bookmarking sites like and technorati bookmarking
