This is a little project I did for fun. In a nutshell, it is a plugin that aims to increase user interaction with your blog by offering a picture of a cute kitten as a reward for commenting.
The plugin relies very heavily on jQuery functionality. The jQuery waypoints plugin is included, and triggers an unobtrusive panel when a reader scrolls to near where your comments for is on the page. This panel alerts the reader to the fact that they will be rewarded with a picture of a kitten for their comment.
On comment submission, a responsive lightbox is displayed with a randomly selected cute kitten picture and a message thanking the commenter for their submission.
The plugin is only compatible with the default WordPress commenting system, and the comment form must have an id of ‘commentform’ (this is the WordPress default) in order to work.
The plugin is hosted on the WordPress plugins repository, you can get a copy for your blog for free by clicking here.
