You guys kept bugging me about it and so I threw my considerable weight as one of the world’s foremost evil bastards around and demanded that a change be made to the core of ExpressionEngine that would make it possible to once again display the little list of most recent commenters at the bottom of each entry! You see how wonderful I am to you people now??
OK, truth is I asked Paul Burdick really, really nicely if he’d take a look at what I was attempting to do and the different means I had tried that didn’t work and what I suspected the reasons why they didn’t work were and then suggest a means I might pull it off. He noticed that one of the means I was attempting that didn’t work could be fixed with a simple change to one of the core modules and offered to check with Rick if he could make the change. Rick thought it would be OK and so Paul made the change and sent it to me to test out and, by golly, it works like a charm!
Best of all, this simple change opens up a whole bunch of new possibilities that has got me all excited and anxious to try out. Unless I come across any problems it’s likely this change will actually make its way into the next build of EE, but for now I’m the only person in the whole world who can make use of it! Wheeee! I’m special!
Well, for a little while anyway.
