    Your Facebook connect is a little wonky, but still functional.

    Do you mind sharing the changes you made to the Facebook Connector plugin? Does the plugin set up each connector as a new WordPress user? I would also be curious to see the code snippet you used to produce the comment numbers…

    Thank you!

    Does the plugin set up each connector as a new WordPress user?

    Yes, it does. Even though you used FB, you can also edit your local profile.

    I’ll see about getting my modifications onto GitHub, it’ll be good to have a record and you can see what I did.

    Ok, my mods are now up on GitHub.

    @Jason, what you asked for specifically:

    Here’s the diff between the published Facebook Connector plug-in and my modifications. Most of those changes are frontend stuff.

    Here’s my modification to Comment Counter. Basically I added a function called comment_count_beyond_this, which only has output if someone has more than one comment (beyond the one you’re looking at).

    The code to make it show up is buried in this file. It is:

    <small><?php comment_count_beyond_this('id', '[<a href="http://smarterware.org/?fbconnect_action=myhome&userid='.$comment->user_id.'">+', '</a>]'); ?></small>

    Nice upgrades, Gina.

    Head Cleaner looks useful, but I’m finding its options a bit confusing.
