Latest Version: MTCommentIcon v1.004
MTCommentIcon is a MoveableType plugin to add user icons (via FOAF) to comment posts. Once installed in your MovableType plugins directory, a new template tag, <$MTCommentAuthorIcon$>, will be available for use within the scope of a <MTComments> tag.
When used, MTCommentIcon can produce comments that look like this:
When the <$MTCommentAuthorIcon$> tag is used within a <MTComments> tag, and the comment in question has an associated URL field, MTCommentIcon will attempt to discover a user icon for the comment. First, a FOAF file containing a foaf:depiction is searched for at the specified URL using FOAF Autodiscovery. If found, the referenced image is scaled and used as the icon. If no FOAF icon is found, an RSS feed containing an Image attribute is searched at the specified URL. If found, the image is scaled and used as the icon.
Since LiveJournal enabled FOAF support, a comment icon will be available for any commenter who uses a valid LiveJournal URL.
