Realtime Comments

Description

Native, lightweight, super-fast plugin for updating comments in real-time with Ajax, without need to refresh the page. Allows comments section work interactively like a chatroom. Comments re-classified as trash or spam will be dynamically removed from users screen. It’s pure WordPress plugin, no need for third parties (like Disqus), no paid services, no secondary logins. Perfect alternative to Disqus.

Administrator can choose update frequency, define in what pages realtime comments are used, comments ordering in selected pages. Additionally is possible to set custom walker function (if used theme uses it) and size of avatar.

Supports also paginated view of comments: in this case new top-level comments will be dynamically are added to newest comments page. Nested comments will be dynamically added to parent comments at any comments page.

Installation

This plugin is great! The only thing missing is the possibility that new comments appear with a different background color, and after moving the mouse over, return to normal color.
