Freshness Warning
This article is over 15 years old. It's possible that the information you read below isn't current.

SimpleComments has been updated yet again. This new version includes support for dynamic templates courtesy of Brad Choate. It also fixes a bug that caused an incorrect list of comments to appear if you used SimpleComments outside of an entry with the lastn attribute and had recent unapproved comments. The plugin now appears in the MT3 user interface as an installed plugin.

Also new is an easier install method thanks to the elimination of the file. All the plugin’s functions are still deferred until you actually use them, but the module code is now all encapsulated in the main plugin file thanks to SelfLoader. The idea came from Brad Choate — his Perl Fu is obviously much stronger than mine.

Arvind: Use either one. I've included Brad's in the download because it's released under the same license as my original and because Brad wrote it with the intention of making it part of the product. Both dynamic plugins to essentially the same thing, you can use either one.
