Hello, I got another question. I have a website where different authors post articles. each article has a contact form underneath for discussion. My question is: Is it possible to mark the author of an article, that he/she gets highlighted in some way and people in the comments discussion know immediately that its a post of the article author? or is there any workaround? Thank you very much in advance

Hello, is there any way that I can show a users number of comments, upvotes and last written comments in their profile page? via shortcode or so? that would be super awesome!

Hey there!

Is the a way to unblock not confirmed eMail adresses from not registered useres?

You just subscribed for new comments on our website. This means you will receive an email when new comments are posted according to subscription option you’ve chosen.
To activate, click confirm below. If you believe this is an error, ignore this message and we’ll never bother you again…”

So if a not registered user want to follow the thread but click not of the activate button or forget it his eMail will be blocked in the future.

So if the user want that we unblock his eMail my question is can we do this with this AddOn? Its important for us to do this with “guest users” that are not logged in

thnx for helping

Hi Nico Marcuz,

Please note guests are not able to follow users at all. Also if the user doesn’t Confirm Follow the email will be re-sent automatically. This has no any relation to wpDiscuz Comment Author Info addon. It’s default wpDiscuz feature.

wpDiscuz Comment Author Info addon is designed to provide extended details about comment authors. Using this addon people will be able to see comment author extended profile, activity, votes and subscriptions.

Astghik, thnx for your fast reply. I try to explain my question from a other side.

If you go to our side you have no possibility to register (log in). (www.hello-world.net)

If you want to leave a comment you can do this. you have to insert your name and your eMail in the comment formulare. and if you want you can follow the thread or the comments to your comments (not follow the users!).

So my question is can I see this unregistered peoples in the database of our product “wpDiscuz Comment Author Info”? If so I would buy it.

The real problem behind this question is the following…:

If people come to our side – and pls remeber they can`t registered or login – and leave a comment – AND want to follow these thread, they got a eMail to subscribe. so far so good!

Now the problem:
If they dont answer to this eMail (maybe because they forget or the eMail is in the spamfilter) and come back to our side after maybe 3 weeks, leave a new comment and want to follow these new thread they get a error msg! (because her eMail is blogged by wpdiscuz). so far so good!

These users write us an eMail and told us the problem and want that we unblock her eMail-Adress. So we dont know where to look because there is not database frontend where we can see this emails and there status.

Hope you understand my problem. I think its also a problem for wpdiskuz (btw: really great product)

thnx for helping in advance

Hi Nico,

you need to check wpDiscuz Subscription Manager addon. You can monitor and manage all subscribers from dashboard.

As you mention in your post you don’t allow users to register or log in, so all users list you’ll find in Dashboard > Comments > Subscriptions admin page.

Also, we’ve already added in our to-do to allow filtering subscribers ( display the registered users or guests only ).

Can users change their Avatar using this plugin?

1 year 4 months ago

Hi Dora,
I’m sorry but not. This plugin is designed to display user information. This doesn’t add user data management features. Avatars and other profile data should be edited in Profile Plugins or in Dashboard.

I’m trying to hide the avitar altogether. Is this possible or do I need to purchase this add-on

1 year 7 months ago

Hi nick,
It is possible to hide avatar without wpDiscuz Comment Author Info addon.
Please navigate Dashboard > Settings > Discussion, disable “Show Avatars” option.

Is there a way to show “full-info” of user below avatar instead of embedded in a hidden popup? I would like to see “# of comments / date user joined / # of mycred points”. Basically I like the way that this information is shown on WPForo, but the WPDiscuz takes this info away and hides it.

Hi Joel,
I’m really sorry but there is no way. We’ll take this under consideration and add in future update to-do list.

What would be the price for adding comments tab to buddypress profiles just like in your wpDiscuz Comment Author Info add-on – the same way, but as a tab in buddypress?

Here is an example: https://buddypress.org/support/topic/my-comments-tab/

As far as I know BuddyPress has a tab for user activity including comments.

Is there a way I can show this information within the users buddypress profile? Can I copy the template code and add it to a profile tab?
