YUI WordPress Comment System

Category: Sencha, Showcase, Yahoo!

Jack Slocum is at it again. He sat down thinking about revamping his WordPress comment system, and at 3am he was done.

His new comment system is based on YUI and features:

  • Block Comments: A “Block” is any paragraph, image, title or code in a post. When you select a block to comment on, it is highlighted in blue
  • Comments Throughout: Comments can be posted anywhere in an article. If you see something and you wish to comment on it, click on the comments bar directly next to it
  • Viewing Comments: To view the comments posted by readers, click on the yellow indicator next to that “Block” on the comments bar
  • Resize: The comment widget is flexible, so you can resize and move it around.

Someone should hire this guy, already – get him out of the house. ;)

Quite seriously though, he’s got some nice work. Quite functional stuff, and also looks good.

That’s what I was about to say. Damn. He’s writing more YUI than we are.

[…] Now, via Ajaxian, I see that Jack Slocum has integrated a very new and very innovative commenting system: […]

[…] Questa segnalazione si inserisce, in qualche modo, nel dibattito “come evolve l’oggetto blog” al quale dibattito, per inciso, si assiste sbadigliando da un po’ di tempo. Ajaxian segnala il lavoro di tale Jack Slocum il quale, forte della sua esperienza con Yahoo! UI e Yahoo.ext in quattro e quattr’otto ha rivoluzionato il sistema di commenti per WordPress. Difficile da raccontare, l’idea è quella di inserire una barra verticale a lato del post che sia sensibile alla presenza dei blocchi di testo sulla quale poter cliccare per lasciare un commento relativo al singolo blocco di testo e non all’intero post, ferma restando la possibilità di inserire commenti “globali”. Il commento è semplice. Non dibattete troppo di come evolveranno gli strumenti, qualche ragazzetto li sta già facendo evolvere sotto al vostro naso. […]

I’m going to get to see how it handles a lot of comments right from the start! Already 150+ comments on the page and it seems to be doing ok. Of course my normal posts never get near that many comments.

[…] Auf ein recht schickes und elegantes Kommentarsystem für WordPress bin ich heute dank Ajaxian aufmerksam geworden. […]

Not only “Why didn’t I think of that?” but my God this guy is fast & prolific. Does he sleep? I want Jack on the YUI team. Thomas, Nate, Eric, what do we got to do to get him?
