WordPress Plugin: AJAX Comments 2.0

Mike Smullin’s — AJAX Comments 2.0 — is probably one of the best ways you could spice up your WordPress Blog with AJAX.

Demo: Click “Add comment” on this Post and after writting “Hit Submit” Button. You will see an AJAX throbber and the comment will be submitted without refreshing or leaving the page.


  • comment form validation happens server-side without refreshing or leaving the page
  • Script.aculo.us Fade In/Out Effects make readers happy
  • works with AuthImage captcha word verification plug-in to prevent comment spam
  • still works traditionally if browsers don’t support JavaScript (or have it disabled)
  • uses existing theme code to match styled comment threads when producing new comments
  • 25-second server timeout ensures readers aren’t left hanging
  • works in current versions of Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, Netscape, and Safari.

Recommendations: (Works well, if you don’t have any of the under mentioned)

  • perfectly compliments any well-styled comment form—don’t design without it
  • best when moderation is off (seems more real-time) and AuthImage is installed (self-moderation is the best moderation)

How to implement:

  1. Download ajax-comments v2.07
  2. Unzip/upload to /plugins directory.
  3. Activate via WordPress Plugins tab.

AuthImage Integration:


  • Open ajax-comments.php and uncomment lines: 92, 152, 153.
  • Open comments.php from your /themes directory and use the following code (mostly just the ids) for AuthImage to appear in your comments form:
