Top Commentators Widget for Blogger / Blogspot with Advanced Features

Blogger has always lacked a Top Commentators Widget which would encourage the readers to leave useful comments on your blog. This blogger widget will display a list of your top commentators.Here i have used a yahoo pipe to implement the same. Thanks to Google system for providing us with a wonderful yahoo pipe.
This widget has some additional features unlike other 'Top Commentor Widgets'.This allows you to filter out the blog author's name from the top commentators list. You can filter out as many names as you want by using the filtering option in the widget installer(the filters should be separated by commas). So if you don't want to list 'Anonymous' in your top commentator list then just use it in the filter field. Another feature of this widget is that users can navigate to the commentator's profile or site by clicking on his name in the list.

You can also set the number of Top commentators that you want to display.You can see a demo of the widget here.

How to Install the Top Commentators Widget For Blogger

Just use any of the Widget installers provided here. Provide your blog URL(in place of www.bloggerplugins.org ) in the Blog url: field of the widget installer.You can also set the number of commentators to be displayed and you can add the names to be filtered out. If multiple names are to be filtered out, then separate then using commas. Click Customize and then hit the Add Widget to Blog Button.


1) Widget Based On Recent 500 Comments.This will judge the top commentators from the latest 500 comments to your blog.

Add Top Commentators Widget to Blog


2) Widget Based On Recent 5000 Comments.This will judge the top commentators from the latest 5000 comments to your blog.This widget is only needed if your blog has high density of comment.I mean if you have more than 500 comments on your blog you can use this one..

Add Top Commentators Widget to Blog


Note:-Install the second widget only and only if your blog has lots and lots of comments.Else you should opt for the first one..

Credits:-
1)The pipe for the first widget is inspired from Assess My Blog
2)The pipe for the first widget is inspired from complicated yahoo pipe by Google System

Please leave your opinions on the widget and help me in spreading this widget to the blogosphere.. Note: If you are reading this in a Feed Reader the widget installer wont be displayed properly.So visit the actual article on the site to install the widget.

  2. How hard would it be to modify a copy of this widget to show the top authors for a team based blog?

    I'd like something that does a list and/or cloud format of authors by post count.

    ReplyDelete
  3. yea.. it is possible.. a widget which lists the top authors..i think your top author is Jim Kelly with 813 posts.. hope i am right..

    ReplyDelete
  4. Thanks a lot for your help for my blog, I don't realize about the mistake. I am amazed looking your blogspot site and other blogger such as Amanda that using blogger.com as their blogging platform. I don't know much about useful widget for my site and always hope can migrate to wordpress. But I think after this I should carry on my blogspot site and getting own domaian name for it. Thanks again!

    p/s: I thinks this dofollow comment box is great. I should apply for it too.

  7. Hi, is there a way to get rid of the numbers or customize it a little?

    ReplyDelete
  8. yea it is possible if you want to remove the left numbering.. delete the following 2 lines from the widget code..
    document.write('<ol>');
    and
    document.write('</ol>');

    If you want to remove the number of comments,then i would have to modify the yahoopipe used for this..

  14. I really wish I could use this plugin...however, it doesn't work for me...I wonder what's wrong?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Thank you so much, this is brilliant.

    I just have a question: would there be any way for the calculations to be made using more than 5000 comments? It's that I checked and my blog is approaching 5500, and while that isn't a big difference at all it means the numbers will become less accurate as time passes and more comments come in.

    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Thanks for this cool widget. I have a problem.
    Why can't I filter out my own name for the Top Commentator? :(

    ReplyDelete
  17. I put up your widget but it didn't filter out my own name. Why? :(

    ReplyDelete
  18. Hi there. I did what you said, but when it appears on my blog, it doesn't list anyone, only my title and the credit for the plugin. Is there something I need to fix in Blogger settings? Please help, I would love to use this. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I have made modified this widget to expand it to the last 10,000 comments, so I could keep a historic top commentators list.

    You can find it here.

    Are you the original author? Because I could never find who created it so I could thank him/her for having published the solution to my 'problems'.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I've seen this widget on other folks' blogs and it works fine. It's not working on my blog and I can't figure out why. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

  29. I had to expand the pop-up window to see the buttons but it's now on my blog. But my name appears in the #1 spot, even though I listed it now to show up at all.

    I'll always be #1 because I respond to every commenter. I don't want to be on the list at all. What now?

  33. Hi :)
    I have installed it, but so far it hasn't shown up anything except a link back to this site...
    I will leave it there for a couple hours just in case it takes a while to activate? I hope it will eventually, because the idea of it sounds really cool !:)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Thank you Aneesh for letting me know what I had done wrong when I installed it, it works great now ! :)
    Thankyou for sharing this widget also :)

  36. i don't know but it doesn't work for my site. when i reach the point where i can already add the widget, it freezes and when i refreshes it it stays in the smae page and nothing happens.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I had trouble with this but I found of that it worked fine if I removed the / at the end of the url of my blog. And no spaces in the filter.

  38. Hi. I have your widget in my blog, http://adurarealidade.blogspot.com/.
    I just started it, and I only have 3 comments. Nevertheless, i have people who commented my blog 74 times. It seems the widget is getting wrong info.
    How do I reset the widget or something like that???

  39. Thanks for your response. I tried what you suggested, leaving out the last "/" from the website address. Unfortunately, it still doesn't work. The widget shows up, with no names ... just blank. I'd love to use it, but it doesn't work with my site for some unknown reason. Wish it worked. Looks good, if it happens to work. :(

  41. Hey there. This widget sounds so good but when I added it to my site, I just got a link back here. Any idea why it won't work?
    My blog is at http://boxingwords.blogspot.com/ and I have added this widget to the bottom middle footer.

    Thanks in advance!

    ReplyDelete
  42. @ choco its because you didn't fill out the widget installer properly..

    you should fill it with boxingwords.blogspot.com and not
    boxingwords.blogspot.com/

    there shouldn't be any http:// at the beginning and no / at the end..

    hope you got it..

    ReplyDelete
  43. @Aneesh
    That was simple! (Blush)
    Thanks a ton. It is working like a dream now! :)

  46. Thanks for these widget. But I have a little trouble: the widget don't want to show top of my commentators. And I don't know why... :(

    ReplyDelete
  47. how do I remove your commentators?

    thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  48. @М.Врединка that is because you filled in the widget installer improperly..

    You used m-vredinka.blogspot.com/ instead of m-vredinka.blogspot.com

    ReplyDelete
  49. @leticia-galsintheknow.com did you provide your blog url??

    you should provide your blog url yourblog.blogspot.com in the widget installer.

    ReplyDelete
  50. This widget doesn't appear to be working. It hasn't updated in a few weeks. I've removed and re-installed it, and it's still not working...

    ReplyDelete
  51. @Oz Girl if it didn't work that means you didn't fill the widget installer properly..
    you probably might have filled it withoz-girlspicaday.blogspot.com/ instead of withoz-oz-girlspicaday.blogspot.com i mean when you fill the widget installer don't use http:// and dont use the trailing slash at the end..

    ReplyDelete
  52. Amazing widget.. installation was so simple..
    thanks a lot.

    ReplyDelete
  53. @Alexandre Brendim if you have the classic blogger template, then you will have to manually add the script to your blog's template..

    First fill in the widget installer and you will be taken to Add Page element page
    There opt for Edit Content. Copy out the entire code from there and close that window. Now add the copied code to your classic template..

    how to put my top commenter on other blog? do i use same code or i have to make some changes?

    ReplyDelete
  59. @रंजन yes you can use the widget on any blog..You just have to fill the widget installer with the blog url whose commentors are to be displayed..

  62. Hello,

    I was very happy to find this widget.

    Unfortunatelly I've installed it now but nothing happens. I red the comment on this page to find the solution but I don't see it. Could you please help me to see If I've done something wrong. Thanks a lot ! merci !

    ReplyDelete
  63. fill the widget installer with partimonkiki2.blogspot.com and nothing else.

    ReplyDelete
  64. i personally tested a version of this widget with your blog url and it is working..
    kikiou (22) is your top commenter.. ;)

    just fill the widget installer with the url i mentioned in the previous comment..

    ReplyDelete
  65. Hello Aneesh,

    Thank you very much for your answer and for making the tests for my blog.

    I tried again, just by pasting partimonkiki2.blogspot.com in the widget but nothing happens yet.

    Maybe I'll try to see the code in the blogger template ?

    Thanks again.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Hello again Aneesh,

    Would it be possible for you to copy_past the html code of the widget with my blog address in it so I try to paste it again in blogger to see if it works?

    Thanks you.

    I won't disturb you anymore !

  67. I added this widget to my blog. It worked well but now there is no list anymore. I tried to install it a second time but the widget is empty... What can I do?

    Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  68. @nordish by nature the widget becomes empty when you fill the widget installer improperly,.. ;)

    Actually you should fill the widget installer with ostseewind.blogspot.com and nothing else.. means you shouldn't add a www or http:// at the beginning and you shouldnt add a slash at the end.. i have tested the widget with your commentor list and it is working..your top commentor is berliner luft und ostseewelle (17) ;)

  72. Hi,

    Great widget. I'm using it on my blog now. Thing is, the filter does not seem to work with names that have spaces. I want to filter out my blog partner's name - Yi Lin - but I can't seem to be able to do it. Can you help?

    My blog is http://danyilin.blogspot.com

    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  73. @Dannie,
    yea its true. and there is a work around for that too..
    just use Yi%20Lin as the filter ie.replace all spaces with %20 .. :)

    ReplyDelete
  74. and from now on. i have updated the widget installer to do that automatically..

    ReplyDelete
  75. Hi Aneesh,

    Thanks for responding so quickly. Unfortunately, I tried just reinstalling the widget, as well as manually changing the HTML. Both methods do not work.

    Yi Lin still appears as a top commentator on my blog at http://danyilin.blogspot.com

    Is there anything else that I can try?

    ReplyDelete
  76. @Dannie.. Did you click the customize button before you added the widget??

    Its working on my test blog..
    http://themelabblog.blogspot.com/

    ReplyDelete
  77. Hi Aneesh,

    Hmm... I did click on customise. I played around with the coding and finally got it.

    To filter out Yi Lin, Dannie and Anonymous, I had to replace the filter section of the code with 'Yi%20Lin%2CDannie%2CAnonymous'

    I guess the %2C replaces the comma.

    Thanks lots!

    ReplyDelete
  78. @Dannie
    %2C was automatically added on by the script because i used esace(filterinput) in that javascript..
    i am not sure why it went wrong with you..:)

  79. I get a comment about Internet Explorer not allowing something due to cross site scripting after I fill out the form.

  88. Didn't realise you had responded, sorry.

    After I fill in the information and click the Add to blog button, it takes me to my Add page element screen but I don't get any options to do anything at all. All I get under Edit Content is:

  91. @C. E. Bailey,
    this widget is based on yahoo pipes.. Yahoo servers doesnt like too much of their bandwidth being consumed.So they reject some requests.That is why the widget fails at times..

    ReplyDelete
  93. I love this widget, but it is now not working on my blog. I have over 500 comments so I switched to the over 500 widget - worked for awhile, now it doesn't display the names. Any suggestions?

    ReplyDelete
  94. This is a great widget- I love it and use it on my blog:

    http://adailydoodle.blogspot.com/

    I have noticed though- that some of the numbers are quite inaccurate. For example I know that my top two commentators have over 100 comments each but this is reporting 48 and 35... I am not sure why. Any clues?

    ReplyDelete
  95. Something has gone wrong with this widget.

    I had a commentator who topped with 52 comments and now they are reduced to 11 and the numbers have changed from high to low for others as well

    Any reasons for that?

    ReplyDelete
  96. @The Survivor ,
    its nothing wrong with the widget. The widget scans the latest 500 or 5000 comments only(depending on the widget you added). So the comment counts will change with time..

    ReplyDelete
  97. why the number of prvious commentators were reduced

    ReplyDelete
  98. I still dont have an answer to my question- my order is all coo-coo

    ADailyDoodle.blogspot.com

    I know a couple of the numbers are way off-

    for example "Lisa" had over 100 and now she is at 22? I thought I had installed the past 5000 comment widget because at this point i probably have a few over 500- but It seams to be foo-bar

    ReplyDelete
  99. Thanks aneesh u have done a great job dear !!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  100. does it take a moment for the comments to be scanned? coz i installed the widget but it's not displaying anything... :(

    ReplyDelete
  101. @phtriples ,
    remove the widget and add it once again :)
    this widget uses yahoo pipes and the old pipe got out of bandwidth due to heavy usage :)
    So i have updated the widget with a cloned pipe..

    ReplyDelete
  102. It works, but not for my page? The widget is there, names and numbers are listed; but they are not the names of people who've ever visited and left comments on my page. Who's results are being shown?

    It's showing I think names of people from your blog, not mine????

    PLEASE Help! I really want this widget and have been looking all over to get one. I tried to under the pipe thing where one builds one themself and thats way way beyond me.

    Thanks
    Sandy
    moving widget to button of the page for now, since it's not showing my commentors...so you'll know where to look to see what's wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  107. I'm using this, love it thanks! But...the numbers keep changing that are listed. Naturally they should go with each comment someone makes; but some of them have gone done. I've not deleted the comments of those that have gone down?? I also question if it's counting them all? Could you look, my top commentor, Jan has commented on almost all my posts. Todate, I've had 62 posts, you can see her numbers only indicate about half???

    Thanks
    Sandy

  108. Thanks for such an Awesome widget for Blogger!!! But unfortunately i use Disqus comment widget on my blog.

  109. Hi, Aneesh,
    thank you very much!

    IMPORTANT:

    Why do I see some commentators names to be linked to blog.com?

    I don't like it!!!

  110. I installed the widget and it works great.

    No comments yet as my blog is new but it does get over 300 hits a day, be the first!

  111. Checking back, was hoping for an answer to the problem about the number of comments decreasing. Haven't heard back from you via email sandycrochet@gmail.com, nothing on my blog, so thought I'd check back here again and see there is no response.

    Could you please see what the problem is. My top commentors posts as well as others keeps getting smaller not larger. I feel almost 100% certain the count is not accurate.

    Thanks

  115. I have the same problem reported by some of the earlier commentators - the numbers seem wrong. And for some of them, the number of comments are actually decreasing. If possible, a solution for this would be much appreciated.

  119. Looks like an absolutely great widget, but I've tried repeatedly without success. All I get is the Top Commentators title without any content. I've tried adding the blog (dokumentaryfotografr.blogspot.com) as instructed to no avail. If you have an idea or suggestion, I'd love a quick email to me on my blog. Thanks and hope all is well!

  120. aneesh- i know this comment is going to sound like a broken record bcuz i've read multiple comments with the same problem...only the title and credits appear on my blog, but not my commentators. this is how i added my url: designcocktail.blogspot.com (without http: or the /)
    can you test it out and see what the problem might be?
    thank you!

  121. Can i have a widget like they are on Wordpress, where comments are on the top of the posts? Cos down there at the end, nobody finds them.

    ReplyDelete
  122. It's not working for me.
    I've tried repeatedly to get it working and read through all the comments for hints and nothing has worked.

    I tried entering the web address in various ways, so that isn't the issue,
    I wasn't sure if I was using the classic template or not so I also tried copying the html text and pasting in the html widget and it still doesn't work.

    I kind of want it for my website so how do you get it?

  128. Great widget! Works very well and easily customized. Only problem is that I can't filter out my own name. I've read the comments and my code looks like this: filter=Sonrisa%2CNewlywed%20+%20Unemployed"> but I'm still showing up as my own top commentor.

    Any fixes?

  131. Hello. The widget works for most part. However, I can't seem to make the name filter work. I've tried it with and without spaces after the comma. It looks like I'm not the only one with that problem. Any workaround?

    ReplyDelete
  132. Finally , something that works!!
    Had been trying a couple of others but they didn't work.But this works great! Thanks

  133. The filter used to work for me, but doesn't anymore :( It shows me as a top commenter.

    ReplyDelete
  134. Besides listing me as THE top commentator, the widget displays incorrect comment counts. Totally useless -- I'm uninstalling.

    ReplyDelete
  135. Yeah doesnt work for me either!

    ReplyDelete
  136. The widget used to work perfectly until recently when it doesn't even display anymore. In all that time, I never really got d name filter to work! What to do?

  137. Aneesh,

    How can I reset this top commentator widget? Any idea? I'm opening top commentator contest on my blog.

  138. The internet explorer would not let me install this widget no matter how I tweak the security settings. Is there any way to view the html code without the use of the automatic installer?

    ReplyDelete
  139. Thanks! I'm using it now. Great stuff!

  159. Please help. i have tried all your relevant suggestions on this page, putting in the URL as suggested, but nothing has worked. I just get the title: 'Top commentators' and nothing else. I would appreciate a reply. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  160. I have it installed on my sites and you will get a lot of spam, but it is filtered and I have to approve all my submissions first. I state right on my blog that you must leave a comment that is more that just “cool site” or I will delete it. It filters all the spam out, so all I have to do is hit delete. I highly recommend it.

    ReplyDelete
  161. This still works?
    I trying to put on my blog but don't works

  165. Aloha, The widget rocks!!=) It's up an working immediately.

    But I have the same question as a few comments above. Is there a way to reset monthly.

    One problem I'm having is filtering my name. I copy and pasted over exactly the username I comment other but I still see my username tip of the list.

    I will pop back in to see any replies or email me
