Subscribe to Gibberish comments

One of the problems with an interactive blog is that comments can get lost in the shuffle. Many Gibberish readers come from Google searches on products I’ve reviewed, or from people researching some of my C&R rifles. Someone may comment on an article that is months old. These comments may go unnoticed under the default WordPress layouts. A few months ago I placed the most recent comments in a content block right underneath the search — and comments have gone way up as a result.

Today I’ve enabled an RSS feed for all comments. If you’re just interested in the comments of one entry, this isn’t for you. However, if you’re interested in following/participating in the general Gibberish discussion scrum, you’ll want to add this to your feed aggregator.

    If you don’t mind me asking, which wordpress plugin did you use for the comments module? I have been trying some out, but I haven’t found one that I like.

    I use bdp-comments, which can be found here. The Yellow Card plugin looks nifty too, although we don’t have enough mean commenters to make it worthwhile.
