Flock, extensions, and coComment [en]

[fr] Une adresse de site pour convertir des extensions Firefox pour utilisation avec Flock, qui est un excellent navigateur. J'étais déçue de ne pas pouvoir utiliser l'extension Firefox pour coComment avec Flock -- maintenant je peux!

My ex-collegue and now friend Gabriel introduced me to the Flock browser quite some time back. I mentioned it quite a bit on my other blog but I don’t think I talked about here much.

Anyway, it’s great. It’s Firefox, but with all sorts of nice bloggy, flickr-y, del.icio.us-y stuff tied in. I’d like to get coComment integrated in there too.
(Disclaimer: I work for coCo.)

One thing that makes coComment really nice to use is the Firefox extension. Once you’ve installed it, you don’t need to do anything, and it automatically records all the comments you make (as long as the blog platform is more or less compatible to show them on your user page. Here’s mine.

The thing that bothered me when I started using Flock again sometime back was that I had to revert to using the bookmarklet (which, let’s be honest, is a real pain — who remembers to click on a bookmarklet before posting each comment? not I!) Today, as I was starting on my tour of the blogosphere to see what people are saying about coComment I came upon another Flock user who regretted the extension wasn’t compatible.

So, I headed to our internal bug-tracker to find out what the status of my request for a Flock extension was, and saw that Nicolas (coComment’s Daddy!) was asking for more information on converting extensions. I googled a little and here’s what I came up with:

Well, I installed the extension in Flock, restarted my browser, and after a painful start (wouldn’t be able to tell you if it was because of the extension or just good ol’ Windows acting up) it was up and running. I now have Flock running the coComment Firefox extension!

Let me know how it goes for you if you try it, particularly on other platforms. And if you haven’t tried Flock yet, you should. It’s really neat!

  1. Very, very cool! I’ve installed it already and will be blogging about how it works.

    Thanks for the trackback – thanks how I knew that you had found a CoComment plugin for Flock.

  2. I’ve tried Flock, but still prefer Firefox. If I had to switch I think that I’ll do it for Opera 😉

    Anyway, the point of this comment is to mention that my coComment Firefox extension is struggling with some websites (like Pointblog for example)… It just gives me some kind of “connection error”. (but it works fine with most blogs…)

  3. hello!

    J’ai une question qui peut paraître débile, mais je ne sais pas comment faire, alors j’ai besoin d’aide : je reçois maintenant tous les jours du spam sur des commentaires sur mon blog et ça m’énerve! Y a-t-il un moyen pour éviter ça?

  4. Tu as plusieurs solutions, l’une d’entre elle étant d’installer un captcha (une image avec des chiffres que les gens doivent recopier avant de poster le commentaire).

    Comme tu es apparemment sur wordpress, tu devrais trouver ton bonheur dans la base de plugins: http://wp-plugins.net (regarde dans “comments plugins”).

  5. Le mieux: tu ouvres un compte wordpress.com ce qui te donnera accès à une clé Akismet (qui est un système anti-spam personnalisé). Assure-toi aussi que tu as la dernière version (ou presque) de WordPress. Sinon, moi j’ai carrément activé la modération des commentaires sauf si le commentateur a déjà un commentaire accepté sur le blog.

  6. Sur ton site, et c’est le seul blog qui me fait le coup, à chaque fois… à chaque page, j’ai un popup cocomment qui vient pour faire un login, c’est très ennuyeux. Je le ferme immédiatement car il est inutile, j’ai déjà toutes les infos présaisies nécessaire et même le logo “CO Enable” présent. J’ai le plugin désactivé.
