I’m starting to get some feedback on this site, which is great considering it’s not widely publicised.
Being an admin here means I have a dashboard control that shows me all the recent comments that have been posted… but there was no such tool for site visitors.
So I’ve added a new tool to the sidebar, that will show the top 5 articles which have received comments. The number of comments, and who has posted comments is also shown. The color of the poster is suppose to represent the ‘age’ of the comment: Darker colors are recent posts, and the lighter colors are older post.
