Qgyen.AllCommentRss with Spam Filtering

Qgyen.AllCommentRss v1.0.60918

A while ago, I had released my module to add an RSS feed for comments across an entire blog, geared for blog owners.  One of the frequently requested enhancements was for it to support filtering out of spam comments.  Lots of people have been getting a ton of spam, and the spam rules within CS can be a huge help in tackling them, but they would still pollute the owner's comment RSS feed, keeping them from just seeing the actual comments made by their adorning audience.

So, over the weekend, I had some spare time and added in support for filtering spam from the comment RSS feed.  The feed link included on the review comments page will now match the currently selected spam filter.  So if the list of comments you are viewing is filtered to Not Spam, the feed link will be the Not Spam filtered feed.  Also, any existing feed URL that doesn't include the spam filter segment will default to the Not Spam feed.

Total list of changes in this version:

  • Added spam filtering
  • Reworked in-feed commands (moderate/approve and delete) to work through the exist comments page, rather than by the feed's handler.  A little bit cleaner, less duplicate code, and like the security around it more.
  • Fixed possible cache issue with using the feed across many blogs.
