You can use the options below:

  1. 1. Do auto-moderation if comment is flagged more than X times.
  2. 2. Do auto-moderation if comment is down voted more than X times.

My app won’t be allowed in the playstore because WPdisquz is lacking moderation features. This add-on fixes the report option for violation. However Google also demands that users must be able to block each other, am I correct that this not possible in wpdisquz?

You can use the “Admin Email” field. Just fill in the email addresses of the post authors, so they’ll get the email notifications as well.

Thank you

Hello, We plan to implement your comments. We have developed a voting game. Screen which display 2 person name grouped as pair(We have Unique ID for each pair). We need to display/filter comments posted to specific pair. Is this is possible with your comments plugin.

5 years 5 months ago

Hi Hari,

Thank you for your interest in the wpDiscuz plugin. Your question has no any relation to this addon.
Please open a new topic in gVectors forum ( https://gvectors.com/forum/how-to-and-troubleshooting/), and provide a bit more information. It would be better if you leave your website URL.

6 years 9 months ago

Sorry I’m new to this but the price is $25 / year so that means we would need to pay $25 every year to get the update,. Otherwise we’ll only have the old version after 1 year. Is that correct? And what’s the difference between basic support and premium support? Thank you.

6 years 9 months ago

Yes, but there is no subscriptions, you pay manually after 365 days if you want. The old version will always be available for you. More info: https://gvectors.com/terms-and-conditions/#licenses

Can this plugin be translated?

Hi Kalle,
All our addons has own translation POT file in /languages/ subDirectory. You can use that for translation.

I would love such more advanced auto-moderation rules like:
“Do auto-moderation if comment is down-voted more than X times” AND Percent_of_down_votes is higher than Y %
So we could set up such conditions where:
comment is down-voted more than 10 times” AND Percent_of_down_votes is higher than 66 %

Obviously the recent solution of:
“Do auto-moderation if comment is down-voted more than 10 times” can mean a too much or a too little threshold. If there are “only” 11 down votes beside 200 up vote, that is not surely a comment-must-be-moderated.

And I think this is not a huge developer task 🙂

7 years 6 months ago

Hi Van,
There will not be such an issue, if you have +200 and -11 votes the sum will be +189 and it’ll not be auto-moderated.
The auto-moderation logic based on the sum, not only on the negative votes.

7 years 6 months ago

Hi VaroS,

I understand you.

I think extending the auto-mod logic and giving us more options to select would allow us users to customize the auto-mod process better. In some cases the 30% negative vote is also too much, which is not auto moderated with the current logic.

I would definitely buy the extension if such an advanced, more customizable comment and commenter auto moderation logic would applied…

Good morning,
I write to you cause we’re interested on this addon, first on one site, but probably after a few days we’ll install it on 7-8, so my question is, could we buy a “1 site license” just for testing and if it fit our requirements upgrade the license to 7 sites?

Michael Rodrigues

Hi, would like to upgrade my “1 site license” to a “10 site license”, could you please send me the coupon?
Mt order number was 23845

7 years 3 months ago

Thank you for your interest in wpDiscuz Report and Flagging addon. I’m really sorry but this can not be changed to 10 site license, even with an additional price. Our plugin licenses are not upgrade-able.
You should purchase a new 10 Site License. This license allows you get single plugin with approx. 60% discount ($95/10=$9.5 instead of $25). So when you buy a 10 Site License you automatically get 60% discount, there is no additional coupon for this.

7 years 11 months ago

Hi Víctor,
thank you for your interest in wpDiscuz Report and Flagging addon. We have Single Site, 3 Site and 10 Site licenses for each product. You can buy Single Site License and then, whenever you want just contact us for the 10 Site License. We’ll send you -$25 coupon code so you’ll get the 10 Site License with $95-$25 = $70 price. If you by 7 separate products with Single Site License it’ll cost you more than $100, even with all discounts. So the 10 Site license with the coupon code mentioned above, will be the best way for you.
