Top Commentators Widget is now Extended

Top Commentators Widget finally hosted in WordPress.org. Check it out at http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/top-commentators-widget/Yes, my friends, the Top Commentators Widget is now officially part of WordPress.org Plugin Directory. I was driven to finish the setup for the widget’s hosting to WordPress.org, especially after seeing the built-in plugin update notifier in WordPress 2.3.

I am SO GLAD I finally completed what I had planned to do since June, but as you have read in my previous post, the tedious work that is Subversion was what made me chickened out of doing so sooner. I’m grateful that Ronald at Weblog Tools Collection did that tutorial on TortoiseSVN and explained in painstaking details how I should go about setting everything up. The slightly intimidating part of hosting in WordPress.org was actually the preparation of the ReadMe file — I’m glad the WordPress team prepared a readme validator to make sure I formatted it well.

Of course, I’ll still be maintaining the Top Commentators Widget page in my blog, but I’ll recommend everyone to start visiting the Top Commentator Widget in WordPress.org as the information in that page is more easy on the eyes.

    I have come across an error while using Top commentators plugin on Options theme by Justin Tadlock.
    I am getting an error in the widget control panel after i activate the top commentators widget, i am using the latest 2.5 ver. of wordpress:

    Error: Fatal error: Cannot redeclare ns_substr_ellipse() (previously declared in /home/sdfaheem/public_html/wp-content/plugins/topcommentators_widget.php:26) in /home/sdfaheem/public_html/wp-content/plugins/topcommentators_widget.php on line 26

    The strange thing i noticed is, the top commentators widget is working good on the blog but i am getting the error in the widget.
