[plugin] [ORPHAN] peg_nested_comments

IMPORTANT NOTICE

etc has made this plugin compatible with TXP 4.5.
In order to download skip here.

Original forum post

I’m thinking of moving from Livejournal to Textpattern/xPattern. One of the things I need for this is threaded comments. There’s an existing plugin for this (cha_comment_reply), but it only does one level of nesting.

I took some bits from cha_comment_reply, some other bits from the Textpattern source, and built some recursive functions that can go to any depth of nested comments. It’s still a work in progress – I know there’s some things I’m just not doing properly yet (see the ‘todo’ in the help) – but it does, indeed, function.

Usage:
  • replace <txp:comments /> in your comments_display form with <txp:peg_comments /> – it takes the same syntax.
  • add <txp:peg_child_comments /> to the end of your comments form. Use the same arguments you had for <txp:comments />.
  • put <txp:peg_reply_link /> somewhere in your comments form. This tag generates the link to reply to the comment.
  • finally, put <txp:peg_reply_to /> somewhere in comment_form. This generates an invisible field.

Requires Javascript.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] peg_nested_comments

Sorry, not yet – I only have TxP running on my local machine. I decided to make sure that TxP and my plugin are happy on the remote server. So now I can say that this comment-threading plugin has been tested under PHP4 and PHP5, too. See it in action!

(and thanks for the board syntax fix, Ruud.)

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] peg_nested_comments

That is looking very nice! Can you see in the back end if a comment is a child comment?

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] peg_nested_comments

Not yet, but that’s a good idea. I’ll add that to the to-do list if I can figure out what to wedge into!

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] peg_nested_comments

What happens to the nested comments if you disable the plugin? I’m worried about using this plugin if it’s going to break the comments if/when I turn it off.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] peg_nested_comments

If you disable it and go back to the normal comments tag, they’ll be displayed as a sequential list. Nested comments are stored in the same flat table as always; I just add a couple of additional fields to link parents and children.

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] peg_nested_comments

Just to be sure – they’ll display in order-of-entry, right? (Whereas with your plugin, they’ll display in thread order.)

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] peg_nested_comments

Yes.

If you have 10 comments and reply to comment #6, that comment will still be #11. It just gets marked as being a child of #6, and if you display the comments using my tags, they’ll be shown as such.

I need to do a cleanup pass on this thing. grin

Re: [plugin] [ORPHAN] peg_nested_comments

This looks neat, but I can’t get it to work. Also the “hidden field” is a text field that gets a number in it if you click “reply”… I set a css attribute to not display the field, but I would like to have there be some other indication that a comment is being posted as a reply. Right now if you’re already down at the bottom clicking on the link doesn’t visually change anything (doesn’t move to a new area of the page or anything) so people could get confused. Maybe if a line of text appears above the form that says “reply to [name]” or somethinig?

But anyway, I can’t get the nested thing to work so far. It still just shows the comments in order, all aligned to the left. I followed the instructions in the OP here, but the instructions in the Plugin help don’t display because the tags are not shown (you can see them in the source). Is there something more to it that I’m missing? I thought at first it might not be playing nice with sed_comment_pack but disabling that didn’t change anything.
