Pre Sale Support
Hello Team, kindly confirm whether You plan to add support for ID3, MP4 (iTunes), Matroska and Vorbis media file tags inside the media upload plugin. It’s connected to a second question: If I upload an M4A file (which is plain AAC in MP4 container, M4A extension is for pure Audio files as in opposite to Audio/Video media, which is MP4), the player opens in a new window. Could You enable the player for this filetype inside the comment section? The Media Extension supports it. This filetype’s MIME type is .m4a audio/m4a. These and other audio files are displayed iTunes, vK, Telegram according to their embedded media tags in a slick, non-chaotic manner. Playlists look especially elegant and clear. Of course it depends on the author of the file, if they use this feature to enrich the files. Usually, when the tags are clear, the respective players use the plain filename as identificator. I use tags while encoding, and it serves for a credit database inside the files, which is very convenient in long-term storing, because the metadata never gets detached physically from the media file. Further, on the side of the player, which can be vKontakte, or many other sound/playlist enabled portals and software (so You can have a look inside at a living example how above software and hardware [macOS, iOS] is using these tags), it display the media file in a very communicative way, so the user is fully and visually informed about the artist, the title, even the album cover as a static graphic file, which is supported in most formats. Frankly speaking, these are some scenarios of iTunes/ID3, etc. media tag possibilities, which are widely used on parts of the earth, depending on the popularity of certain platforms, hardware and apps. Excuse my elaborate. If You have any questions, feel free to ask by e-mail. At least I would appreciate a check of feasibility, since I want to embed tagged media files (especially M4A for quality and compatibility) and offer it to my audience. I speak for more than one site. Thank You so much for Your patience and best regards
Hello Team, kindly confirm whether the embedded comments (or comments with media attachments) which were already created by the users during the licensed period of the respective addon, do they stay if the license expires or do I need the license to keep the comments (visually)? Thank You and best regards

Hello, we use wpdiscuz plugin for woocommerce products and we notice that we can’t upload media, with this plugin from you will it be possible to upload products as well?
Sure, it’ll work fine on the WooCommerce product pages.
Can I control by user role which person(s) have the ability to upload what types of media? I do not want everyone to be able to upload any type of media but I do have certain WordPress roles I want to have that functionality.
We’re really sorry, but the addon doesn’t have such a feature.
I would like to know if WPdiscuz and its add ons are compatible with the WCFM multivendor plugin.
I want to use on product pages to let vendors and customers to communicate through the comments section. Will the media add on work for other roles like vendors and customers or just for native WP roles?
Thank you in advance!
Have a nice day,
Thank you for your interest in the wpDiscuz – Media Uploader addon.
Yes, the addon works for the custom user role.
Can you limit file types people are allowed to upload after you activate the add-on?
Please read this doc: https://wpdiscuz.com/docs/wpdiscuz-7/plugin-settings/comment-content-and-media/#allowed-file-types
Hi, if someone is trying to upload a corrupted or harmful file, is there anything that prevents against this?
If the file type is not allowed it’ll not be possible to submit the comment.
I can only imagine the security issues by having this upload to uploads folder!! Can I choose what upload folder? Can I have different upload folder(s) for different comment forms?
I’m really sorry, but currently, there isn’t a way to choose a different folder for uploading images.
I’m using LearnDash LMS and I wonder if this Add-on allow to upload files in lesson’s, topic’s… comments? Thank you
If the wpDiscuz is loaded on the lesson’s and topic’s pages, the wpDiscuz Media Uploader will work fine.
Did you fix these exploits?
The vulnerability issue was fixed about eight months ago and all is safe now. You can go for 7.x.x update for sure. Just read this topic, and make sure you’re ready for update: https://wordpress.org/support/topic/before-updating-to-wpdiscuz-7-version/
i buy but is not apear the image button
This is not the right place for support questions. This is a pre-sale questions section. For further support please open a new topic in the addons support forum:https://gvectors.com/forum/media-uploader/
I have uploaded a gif (less than 2mb) to your Media Uploader site
The gif does not moves whatsoever actually it is being treated as an static image
can you explain why gifs are not being displayed as animated images?
As far as the images are being cropped in the comment content they are not animated. Once you open it in the lightbox the animation will work fine.
How is Discuz politic regarding WordPress MU? is it considered a single site or each domain from the network is considered a separate site?
These addons don’t have any relation to Discuz. Discuz is a totally different product. Our plugin name is wpDiscuz, and this addon is for wpDiscuz plugin. You can find the information about our licenses and for Multi-site installation here: https://gvectors.com/terms-and-conditions/#licenses
How is this paid add on different from the media uploader that is in the free version?
Please follow this support topic: https://gvectors.com/forum/general-forums/difference-between-media-uploader-add-on/#post-25601
“I just checked out the forum and found that the default media option doesn’t work for custom post types. I suppose this is what’s causing the issue.
However, it says that the paid media addon is recommended.
Is there a way for me to test if the media addon would work for my custom post type before purchase?”
There is this user who posted this issue, I also have same issue. It will be great if this can be fixed. I am sure I will buy this addon after making sure that it works on custom post.
Sorry for the late response.
If the wpDiscuz comment form is loaded when the custom post type plugin you have is enabled, it means the wpDiscuz Media Uploader add-onis will work too. So you can buy it without any worries.
I really wish I could just copy the image and upload it on my server by pasting it into the wordpress media. I have to save the image in my local machine and upload it. If I directly copy the image from other website and paste it, it will be embedded. if this feature is added, it would be great!!
can I restrict that file / image uploads are only allow on dedicated posts? I want to avoid that user upload images in each single post and i disabled overall just the upload button.
Maybe there a small introduction / keyword to find that feature wpDiscuz Media Uploader.
We are really sorry but currently, the add-on does not have such functionality. However, we plan to add such functionality for the future.
I’d like to purchase this plugin, but I’m not able to see the default media button at all.
In my understanding, WPDiscuz allows one media file upload per comment in the plugin.
I have allowed media upload in the Comment Content & Media Settings,
but the media button on the comment section isn’t visible.
Is there some setting that I’m unaware of?
I’m using ver 7.0.7
The wpDiscuz Media Uploader add-on allows to upload photos, videos, audio, and other types of files with comments. It works with Single and Multiple file uploading modes and etc.
Regarding your question about the default attachment, probably there is a small CSS issue. So please open a new support topic in the wpDiscuz.com support forum, and leave your forum URL to allow us to check it:
Sorry for the late response.
Yes, the wpDiscuz Media Uploader add-on allows you to upload the media in the custom post type.

hi..how i can change users background color? answers and questions are same color now! i like change like this site comments.thanks
This is not the right place to ask that question. This is the pre-sale question section, where you can ask all pre-sale questions you have, before purchasing this plugin.
If you have question-related the wpDiscuz plugin please open a new support topic in the wpDiscuz.com support forum, and we will happy to help you:
Hi there, is it possible to have any uploaded media stored on Google Drive rather than the WordPress library?
The wpDiscuz uses the WordPress default functionality to save the uploaded image. So you should find some additional plugin, or use WordPress hook to save the uploaded image in the Google Drive.
Does this wpDiscuz Media Uploader add-on can resize image on client side before upload ?
You can change the image size in the add-on setting. More info here: https://wpdiscuz.com/docs/wpdiscuz-7/plugin-settings/comment-content-and-media/#single-image-sizes-in-comments
Hi, we are really interested in purchasing this extension to use with the main plugin. But before we purchase, I wanted to find out if someone posted a website link, can the website preview be shown? (similar to if you post a link in Facebook)
The addons demo is under consideration. It will be available very soon. Once it will be available you will be able to test it before purchase.
I just read that the default “Attach an image” button is only available for the post, pages, and attachments post types, and for default WordPress user roles.
Does this wpDiscuz Media Uploader add-on add the functionality to upload images for custom post types? LearnDash LMS lessons, for example?
Thanks! Great plugin
When you install and activate the LearnDash LMS lessons plugin, it appears a new post type in the wpDiscuz Media Uploader add-on setting. You just need to enable the type to start using the uploader for custom post types. The option is located in the Dashboard > Comments > wpDiscuz > Settings >Comment Content and Media admin page “Allow Media Uploading for Post Types”.
Thanks! Just purchased the bundle and installed. It worked, thanks!
Hi Fernando Habegger,
Thank you for purchasing.
Do you have a script (or can you create one) to import photos from another plugin?
I want to use your plugin but I have hundreds of photos to import from the Comment-Image plugin:
Is this possible please?
Is it possible to enable this for only specific wpDiscuz forms if you have multiple wpDiscuz forms enabled for different post types?
Yes, this is possible. The add-on has the “Post types supports uploading” option, so you can configure it.
is it possible to give only specific users acces to the upload part?
Sure the add-on has an option for this.
Does your demo have the most recent version of the image addon? I keep getting gdpr errors and errors that say I can add a jpg or png file.
we’ve just checked the demo. It works fine. Please try to test it one more time.
I have a presales question..
Is it possible to add images from WP admin? So if user didn’t post an image, can we attach an image from beaceknd to the user comment?
Thanks in advance
You can insert images from the Dashboard without the wpDiscuz Media Uploader. You just need to edit the comment then attach the image using the img quicktag. Just put the image URL in the popup window and save it.
we use “Offload Media Lite” plugin for upload to S3.
Does this plugin move uploaded files to S3?
I’m really sorry, but the wpDiscuz Media Uploader add-on doesn’t have such an option.
However, if this plugin based on the native (core) WordPress function, the uploaded file should be move to S3.
I understand that once user is suscribed to a comment then he receives a Subscribe Confirmation email so he can follow updates.
is it possible through “customization” that user only receive updates on that comment once he is logged in through a particular website account. not in a via email manner but througn log in to a website account, so he can see first time the update as a notification in a menu.
¿is this level of customization viable or is it off reach the plugin scope?
is it possible to only allow to upload images like jpg, png, and gifs?
I am really interested in buying the next release with this feature, is there a way to be notified so I can right away buy it?
Please let us know can we contact you via the email address you’ve filled in the discussion area? If yes, we will notify you as soon as the new version releases. Otherwise, please contact us via the info[at]gvectors.com email address, and let us know how we can contact you.
do you have an idea when would the next version be released approximately?
Yes please notify me via the email address I have filled in the discussion area. I would like to buy the Media Uploader addon as soon as the new version releases. Thank you!
We will add this feature in the next version release.
However, If you’re familiar with programming, you can use the upload_mimes WordPress hook and make this work until the new version of the plugin.
Hi, is it possible to improve SEO of this addon ?
A good option would be to specify a pattern like : %tags% – %randomID% or %title% – %randomID% or %CommentAuthor% – Image X (1,2,3, etc.)
Thank you for contacting us.
Have you already bought the add-on? If so, please open a new support topic in the Media Uploader addon support forum and leave your forum URL to allow us to check it. We don’t find such an issue on our est websites.
I haven’t. I need info before that’s why I am here in the pre sale section
This is not the right place to ask for the refund. Please contact us via support[at]gvectors.com email address.
hi, is there an option for videos that are uploaded to start autoplaying mute?
This will be available in the next version release.
Hi, is there any list of the supported embed sites we can use with this add-on?
Hi Rainquel Rossi,
Thank you for your interest in wpDiscuz Media uploader add-on!

Great, I’ll test it, thanks!
Hi, does the wpDiscuz Media Uploader plugin support the default HEIF/HEVC high efficiency image formats (introduced in iOS 11) when uploading an image as a comment attachment, from the photo library of an iPhone?
I’m sorry, but wpDiscuz Media Uploader plugin doesn’t support HEIF/HEVC format. wpDiscuz Media uploader uses WordPress core get_allowed_mime_types() hook, that controles uploded images exctention. You should use this hook to make this extension bavailable.
I can upload “jpeg” when uploading photos from “media” section. but I can only load “png” when uploading photos from “comments”.
This is a section for pre-sale questions. Please open a support topic in gVectors Forum here:
Please leave some example URL to allow us to check it.
One more question: Are the wpDiscuz Media Uploader extension and wpDiscuz plugin compatible with default Jetpack plugin on wordpress.com? Thank you.
Some questions, if I may ask, please.
1. Will the photos/videos appear on amp enables pages/posts? Responsive or not?
2. If comments are already on the site, installing wpDicuz will import and show these comments or not?
3. Comments and images or videos placed using wpDiscuz and wpDiscuz Media Uploader on WordPress page or post will still be visible on page/post if this plugin (wpDiscuz) and/or extension (wpDiscuz Media Uploader ) is deactivated or uninstalled?
4. Upvoting/downvoting of photos and videos possible by other users and what about star rating and schema snippets?
5. Will the comments text and images indexed by Google and appear in searches?
Hope to get replies soonest. Thank you.
What is the minimum wifi mps speed required to uplaod video?
There is no such limit over internet speed. You can upload a video even on a 2G network. But there should not be frequent connection loss. If you experiencing problem in connection while uploading, then first CANCEL the UPLOAD, take pause for a while and reinitiate the whole process.
Hi , Can I use this plugin to make my product reviews multi-graph?
I’m sorry, but I don’t follow you. Could you please clarify a bit?
I bought this add-on. But my problem is that my clients upload pictures from the phone at large size and they make the server run out of space. Is there any way to automatically resize an image when uploading to a maximum size smaller than 800px?
Note: Do not recommend using the image limit when uploading because the user is very difficult to do it.
Thank you very much
I’m sorry, but wpDiscuz Media Uploader add-on doesn’t have such a feature. But it uses WordPress native (core) functions, so you can use some additional plugin for this purpose. If the plugin uses WordPress functions as well it’ll work fine with the add-on.
Please check out this plugin:
few presale questions.
1)Can this attached pictures/file from mobile phone directly?
2) Is it possible to redirect uploaded files from comments to different location (google drive etc)?
3) Is it possible to show all uploaded image in a slide for a post
4) I would like to stamp user name on the image who uploaded the image.
Please let me know if those options are available or suggest any plugins compatible with this addon. Thanks
Please find my answers below:
All images are saved in media library. All solutions (plugins, shortcodes,functions) which works with media library can use these images and show wherever they can.
I’m sorry but this is not possible.
Can you provide me a demo version to test some functionality? Thanks
You can see the demo by clicking on the [Live Preview – DEMO] button above.
Hi, Where the uploaded files will be stored ? Can it be stored in a seperate location than default wp media location? Can the storage be Googledrive etc or need to be within the webhost? Thanks
All uploaded files are stored in media library. I’m sorry but there is no option to change it or save in Googledrive etc .
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?
It’s seems, you forgot to click on “Compile order” button. We set it manually.
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!
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.
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.
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).
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
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.
