Updating iNove to work with KeywordLuv plugin

October 5th, 2009

Last week I discussed a new wordpress plugin that got me excited: KeywordLuv. I also promised to show you how I fixed the issue with iNove theme. Here it goes:


The main issue is that the iNove theme uses the get_comment_author_url() and the KeywordLuv works on a different method, the get_comment_author_link(). So, here are the steps to update your iNove theme in a way that the author will show the Author name and the keywords properly:

  1. Go to your WordPress admin area
  2. Install the DoFollow plugin
  3. Install the KeywordLuv plugin
  4. Go to the Appearance tab
  5. Click on the Editor (Themes Editor for wordpress)
  6. Click on the ‘Theme Functions‘ file (functions.php)
  7. Look for these lines of code around line 230:

    <?php if (get_comment_author_url()) : ?>
    <a id="commentauthor-<?php comment_ID() ?>" href="<?php comment_author_url() ?>" rel="external nofollow">
    <?php else : ?>
    <span id="commentauthor-<?php comment_ID() ?>">
    <?php endif; ?>
    <?php comment_author(); ?>
    <?php if(get_comment_author_url()) : ?>
    <?php else : ?>
    <?php endif; ?>
  8. Erase the above lines and instead insert the following code:

    <?php echo get_comment_author_link(); ?>
  9. Save by clicking the ‘update file’ & check your work

That should do it. Notice that this site already has it installed and working properly. Disclaimer: the steps above are provided with the intention that it may fix an issue – there is by no means a guarantee. Each blog is slightly different.

Let me know how this worked out for you.

    An interesting read! I just wanted to say that I follow many blogs, and I’d have to say that yours is one of my favorite. Keep up the awesome posts!
    By the way, KeywordLuv is amazing. I use it on all of my blogs and it really does increase the amount of REAL comments from readers, as there is an incentive for them to post.

    KeywordLuv is great. I just found out about it today. It really is a great step in the right direction of blogging. Commentators now get rewarded for valueable input, and that encourages them to comment more frequently and also more on topic, not just a “thanks bye”.
