Hello. I have just bought the media uploader, and I see that 25 USD is drawn from my bank account. In my account at gVector it says “Order #26860 was placed on February 27, 2018 and is currently Cancelled.” Whats happened?

4 months 25 days ago

Hi erikh,
It’s seems, you forgot to click on “Compile order” button. We set it manually.

4 months 25 days ago

OK. Thanks. Everything is fine now 🙂

Hello, I would like to know if there is a way or that you set it up. I wish that the Internet users could put photos, video but which is not visible by the surfers lamda but only by the webmaster of the site. Confidentiality issue. Purchase license for a site ok!

5 months 13 days ago

Hi Anthony,
I’m sorry but the addon doesn’t have options to restrict attachments based on visitor role. All attachments are public and available for all visitors.

2 months 27 days ago

What if the entire post was private? In that case, I assume the comments (and all videos/audios/images in the comments) would be as well. Please confirm.

5 months 11 days ago

Will it be possible to set up and that Internet users can choose to put in “public” or “make private” when there is confidential information? This novelty would serve us a lot for our site (consumer opinion site).

5 months 10 days ago

You should buy wpDiscuz Private Comments addon to allow users set comment threads private. wpDiscuz media Uploader doesn’t have such option.

Hi-I’m interested in wpDiscuz with the add on option allowing commenters to upload photos for 25/year. Will this all work with WordPress 7.0? Thanks

5 months 19 days ago

Hi diane,
I think you mean PHP 7.0 not WordPress 7.0. Yes, al our addons and plugins are PHP 7 compatible.

hi! do i need to Enter license to activate or addon is work without license?

It’ll work till next version release. You’ll not be able to update if addon is not activated. If you use addons on a staging or development website I don’t recommend to activate.

Hi! How i can specify that my VIDEO from youtube and etc take full-width of comments like in your site.

Hi, One more question, is it possible to showcase all images uploaded via comment in a single place within that page? Some one also ask the similler question about 10 months ago and you added it to your to-do list. has it been implemented now?

10 months 27 days ago

I’m sorry but not. wpDiscuz media Uploader addon doesn’t have such feature.

10 months 27 days ago

Hi, Can I limit how many images/videos can be uploaded by a user for one single comment? and also can I specify maximum size of image and image type can be uploaded?

10 months 27 days ago

Yes, sure please see all settings in Screenshots Tab:

File types are managed by WordPress. Addon doesn’t have option for this. You should use WP hooks in theme functions.php file:
function add_custom_mime_types($mimes){
return array_merge($mimes,array (
'svg' => 'image/svg+xml'

1 year 19 days ago

You can delete file and post a new comment with new file, but you can not attache a new file on comment edit form.

( this was reason for buy this plugin… why button with add file disappeared from comment when editing.. ?

Its not simply change value (src) in js/php ?

1 year 19 days ago

You can test all our products on demo page before buying it and I don’t think the editing of an atatched file can be the main reason to buy this addon. It has dozens of features and functions.

I’m sorry but there is no an easy way to add it in comment editing form. You always can delete the attached comment and post a new comment with new attachment

Hi Colapsnux,
I’m sorry but this plugin doesn’t do such trick. There is no way to replace author avatar using this addon.

Does this retroactively apply to already posted links in comments? So if someone posted a youtube link in a comment years ago, will that link turn into a YouTube player once this plugin is activated?

1 year 3 months ago

Sure, all Youtube and other content providers link will be replaced to according players and widgets.

1st of all thanks for a great comment plugin. I think its the best discus replacement plugin.
I am using the free version of this. But I am very interested to extend the functionality with this “Media Uploader” addon.
My Question is “Is there any option to showcase the uploaded file i.e. Images, video etc. for a single post in a custom place within the single post. I mean Is it possible to showcase the customer uploaded file in a single place ( within the post ) except he comment area”.
Thanks in advance.

1 year 9 months ago

Hi Sujoy,
thank you for your interest in wpDiscuz and addons. I’m sorry but there is no way at the moment. This is a good idea and we’re going to add it in our to-do list. We’ll make it available in future releases. Probably at the beginning of next month.

I am curious how light weight this add on is? I used the de:comments addon and it was so slow to load the images that it crashed my site. Nobody liked it and so i had to pull it down. Also, Internet Explorer required users to make changes to browser in order to use it. Does this thing work well? If its going to crash my site, or bogs it down, can I get a refund?

2 years 3 months ago

Hi Emmett,
Thank you for your interest in wpDiscuz addons. First you should install free wpDiscuz comment plugin and make sure it’s good for you. You can download wpDiscuz here: https://wordpress.org/plugins/wpdiscuz/

wpDiscuz Media Uploader is just an extension for wpDiscuz Free plugin. You can test wpDiscuz Media Uploader addon here:

Here is our refund police: http://gvectors.com/terms-and-conditions/
Your case is not refund-able, the speed of any plugin depends on dozens of factors, 90% of those comes from your site specific configuration, so we don’t know your site condition and are not provide addon refund for such cases.

Please test both before purchasing.

2 years 4 months ago

Hi Tim,
Yes, wpDiscuz Media Uploader is 100% integrated with WordPress Media Uploader. All files are manageable through Dashboard > Media Library.

I do not want photos and videos upload from my wp media library, Can I set the plugin only to upload by URL, the users must host videos in youtube, Vimeo, etc, or photos at MediaFire, Imageshack etc. so, embeds and link to display media, can we do that?

1 year 11 months ago

Hi totaldron,
you can disable Video uploader button. wpDiscuz Media Uploader can do auto-embed for all known video services. Commenter should only put Youtube video, and it’ll embedded automatically. As for images, they can put image URL, and that will be automatically converted to image as well.
