Give Commentators Points with CubePoints WordPress Plugin

Posted: 05 Jan 2009 12:00 AM PST

Are you in need of some more commentators or want to allow commentators to receive points for commenting to get something?

With the CubePoints WordPress plugin you can, CubePoints allows you to choose a certain amount of points for each comment posted by a certain commentator. You can offer premium content, allow readers to purchase merchandise or maybe even an advertisement for your blog with a certain amount of points.

When they post a comment the points set in the administration panel is added to that person’s comment account and if their comment is deleted, it automatically removes the points. You, as the administrator can even alter the points quickly and easily from administration!

If you want to display how many points a commentator has accumulated in the sidebar, you can use this code:

<?php cp_displayPoints(); ?>

You can download and install this plugin from the WordPress Directory.  It was just added on December 26th.

How To: Create a Statistics Page for Advertisers

Posted: 04 Jan 2009 09:01 AM PST

For any bloggers that maintain an “Advertise” page on their WordPress blog, you might want to check a recent guest post by our friend Jean-Baptiste Jung over at Pro Blog Design.   In his guest post, Jean explains how to manually create an auto-statistics page for advertisers.  As with all of Jean’s posts, you’ll get the code you need and more.

Count me in the camp of people who prefer to manually code something into their theme; however, I think this would also be a great idea for a WordPress plugin.   I know a lot of plugin developers have asked for ideas in the past so there you go!  :mrgreen:
