Which addon package adds the Reply button to comments?

4 months 11 days ago

Hi Christopher,

I’m sorry, but I don’t follow you. Please try to explain in other words.

4 months 11 days ago

I installed wpDiscuz but none of the comments have a [Reply] button if you want to comment directly to that comment.

4 months 10 days ago

Reply buttons are a part of wpDiscuz free core plugin. You should not search for any addon. You just need to make sure the nesting level of your comments is set more than one in Dashboard > Settings > Discussions admin page. Please follow to this support topic: https://gvectors.com/forum/how-to-and-troubleshooting/no-reply-button-on-wpdiscuz/

For further questions please register at this forum and open a support topic. This is not a right place for wpDiscuz support questions.

Hello there, very interested in your product however I need to dynamically control which users can be tagged on a post by post basis. Do you give access to any hooks that would allow me to filter the user list dynamically (thinking via functions.php or external plugin). Thank you

2 years 1 month ago

Yes you can do this using these filter hooks:

1. ‘wpdumc_user_search_result’ (filters users in user search button opened search process)
apply_filters(‘wpdumc_user_search_result’, $users, $postID, $sarchKey);

2. ‘wpdumc_mentioned_users’ (filters users in textarea search process)
apply_filters(‘wpdumc_mentioned_users’, $data_uses, $comment);

Does the mentioning system work with only users that have replied to a comment or can we mention any user that exists in our WP users table?

2 years 8 months ago

You can mention any user (not guest). It doesn’t matter that user has posted a comment or not.
