New comment handling features in the latest WordPress update broke many of the usual methods that blog administrators use to number comments. But fortunately, you can still take advantage of the new features like threading and paging without giving up comment numbering — all you need is this plugin.
NOTE: This article was originally published on the Psychology, Philosophy and Real Life blog and was later moved here to GregsPlugins.com.
When this plugin was originally released, the full contents of the 'README' file were provided here in this article. Since the contents of the 'README' file evolve over time, I have now removed the original version but have kept this stub posting so as to preserve the comments which were made at the time.
IMPORTANT UPDATE: This plugin now has newer versions! For information on subsequent releases, please see the update announcements here:
