Best Comment Plugins for WordPress

Recently got asked “How do you get an email to go out to comments gets a response?”. Thought this might be something helpful to others, and wanted to share. The answer is actually really simple I use a couple of plugins for WordPress. When in comes to plugins in WordPress you have several options. This weeks tutorial thought I would recommend the best comment plugins for WordPress that I have found.

CommentLuv

The first plugin I wanted to recommend to help improve your comments is CommentLuv.

The purpose of Comment Luv is to “Reward your readers by automatically placing a link to their last blog post at the end of their comment. Encourage a community and discover new posts”.

This plugin is fantastic. Personally I love it cause when I reply to comments the readers last post is right there making it easy for me to go visit. It really helps increase your comments

All you have to do is install the plugin and activate it. Very easy to use. Now there is a pro version and a free version. I have been using the free version and works perfect for me so far.

  1. Go to Plugins on your Dashboard and click Add New
  2. Search for CommentLuv
  3. Click Install
  4. Click Activate

Comment Reply by Admins Notifier

The next plugin I want to recommend is called Comment Reply by Admins Notifier. This plugin sends an email to the commenter when the author replies to their comment.

This is a very simple plugin to use.

  1. Go to Plugins on your Dashboard and click Add New
  2. Search for Comment Reply by Admins Notifier
  3. Click Install
  4. Click Activate

That is it. Now whenever you reply back to someones comment it will automatically send them a email. This is great cause it gets them to come back to your site to check out the reply.

Something you have been wanting to add to your blog just don’t know how to? Fill out this form, and I will try to cover in a future Tuesday Tutorial.

Peanut Butter Fruit Dip

Peanut Butter Fruit Dip by Lewis Lane

My mom found this recipe for Peanut Butter Fruit Dip on Pinterest recently, and it turned out to be pretty good.  After I tried it I just had to make some for myself, and it is quickly becoming one of my favorite recipes.

Peanut Butter Fruit Dip Recipe

Peanut Butter Fruit Dip

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Simply whisk all 3 ingredients together and serve with fruit
http://lewislanedesigns.com/peanut-butter-fruit-dip/

This recipe is so easy it makes me wonder why I hadn’t thought of it before lol.  Peanut Butter Fruit Dip is such a great accent for your fruit.  My personal favorite has been apples.  Made some Peanut Butter Fruit Dip over the weekend, and took it with some apples to work as part of my lunch.  Instead of the traditional ranch dressing that usually comes with a fruit tray you could add Peanut Butter Fruit Dip to serve if you are having a party.  This would be perfect for a party or picnic cause even kids would like this dip.  You could even send this dip in school lunch for your kids.  Best part is the dip is healthy.   The three ingredients are probably ones you will already have at your house.  The dip is creamy, and sweet at the same time.

This is a great quick, and easy go to recipe for anyone.

What is your go to recipe?  Where do you usually got look for recipes?
