Hello, thank you for your wonderful and free wpDiscuz plugin. I’m still testing it at my staging site but so far very impressed, very pleased 👍 I have two Questions regarding this search add-on feature: Q1) will the search include comments at other pages/posts or only the specific page/post on which the search box in located? Ie, is the search site-wide? Q2) Also how are the results displayed, a list? on a separate page? or? Sorry if I missed that screenshot. Thanks in advance!

Thank you Mary,

Q1) will the search include comments at other pages/posts or only the specific page/post on which the search box in located? Ie, is the search site-wide?

The search button above the comment list searches only for the current post. However, the “Comment Search” Widget comes with sitewide comment searching. In other words, the addons provides both options.

Q2) Also how are the results displayed, a list? on a separate page? or?

It starts searching while you type search words. And it shows the result without page loading and changes those according to your typed words.

You can check it here: https://addons.wpdiscuz.com/wpdiscuz-comment-search/

Hello, does “Comment Search” Widget sitewide searching now? If yes can you explain how it applies. Thank you.

3 years 7 months ago

Can I list comments with this plugin? Or is there another plugin for it? I would like to display the last or all comments on a page with the help of a shortcode.

Hi helga,

We’re really sorry, but neither wpDiscuz nor wpDiscuz Comment Search addon has such a feature. You can use some additional plugin. I’ve found the following one, please check it: https://wordpress.org/plugins/show-all-comments-in-one-page/

If using a custom comments form in wpDiscuz with a custom meta key does this add on allow searches to include the meta key? Can this search the title of the comment as well as the content? Thank you.

How does the LIcense pricing apply to a multisite with one domain but wildcarded such a *.onedomain.com?

If each wildcard is considered a sub-site, how do we purchase more than 10 Site Licenses?

10 Sites License provides support for TEN instance of the gVectors Product(s) that you purchase. Perfect for developers and multi site owners (up to 10 domain names). However, please note: the 10 Sites License does NOT provide support for multiple child blogs or sub-sites. In this case you can only use this license for ten sub-sites. For this license we provide 6 months premium support and one year free upgrades to all future releases.

Hi David,

According to our product license agreement, 10 Sites License provides support for TEN instances of the gVectors Product(s) that you purchase.

More info here: https://gvectors.com/terms-and-conditions/#licenses

Can we use this or any other add-on to sort comments? Also would it be possible to create sort links on the page? Maybe a deeplink url for search terms?

6 years 4 months ago

wpDiscuz plugin has comment sorting links without any addon. please find those in Subscription bar under the main comment form (newest, oldest, most voted) on wpDiscuz Demo page: http://wpdiscuz.com/demo/

Hi. Can the plugin available one more option filter :
– All comment (Autho of post) that i haven’t reply yet
– All comment haven’t reply to me yet (commenter)

6 years 10 months ago

This is a post > comments specific search solution. It’s not general. However there is a Comment Search widget in this addon which allows you do a general search. We may add such functions in widget search but I can’t promise yet. We’ll take this under consideration.

Can you search across all comments quickly, or just through the comments on the current post/thread?

Hi Travis,
We’re preparing wpDiscuz Comment Search 1.0.2 version. It’ll be released this week. It comes with statewide comment search widget. You’ll be able to search in all comments.

Is this sitewide comment search widget still in the works? That’s a big and unique feature we’d really like.

7 years 11 months ago

Thanks Tom. Haven’t seen the new version pop up yet, hopefully it’s still coming.

7 years 10 months ago

Sorry for the delay. We got unexpected issues. Currently we’re adding a shortcode to insert Search Form in page content as well. We’ll release ti by end of this month.
