I purchased this plugin under the impression Admins would still be able to approve comments before they’re posted. I do not see any such option. Please advise or may I get a refund?

This is your mail? I’ll resend it to you.


Hello, thank you for your help. Lastly, when I try to use the short codes using Raw HTML and a text box – neither which shows the comments…. http://www.womenwineandtheword.com/event-archive-details/ please advise.

I want to give users the ablity to upload there media from my server instead of using a link to post the content. Is there anyway to do this or any add-on I can purchase?

Hi, unfortunately there is no such feature, sorry

Hi Max, is it possible not to keep Name, Email, Website mandatory? If yes how can I do that? I have read comments but could not find it by myself, please help.

Another question: Can a user attach and upload media (image / video) while posting comment instead providing just link?


Hi, you can deactivate only the following fields.

.. sorry, it is not possible to upload any files.



1) I want to use the plugin as a chat between buddypress users, can i do that?

2) Do the comments have to be approved without alternative? No option?

Thank you. Best regards.

Hi, it is not possible to use it as a chat, as it is a comment plugin.

If the user does not have sufficient permissions then the comment must be approved first, otherwise it will be automatically published.

Do you have any plans on adding image uploads? Sites should ever allow embedding images from another site. It can invalidate your https and every site should be using https. Google Chrome as of Jan 1st gives a warning to visitors of any site not using it and search puts you lower in the rankings.

It’s worse than I thought. This plugin will not work on https sites. These players need to be changed to https: /* -------------------------------------------------------------------- Función que Retorna el Reproductor de un Video de Youtube o Vimeo -------------------------------------------------------------------- */ function get_embed_video_SAIC($id_video,$tipo_video,$width=610,$height=280,$autoplay=0){ $video_player = ''; if($tipo_video == 'youtube'){ $video_player = '<iframe class="ytplayer" type="text/html" width="'.$width.'" height="'.$height.'" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/'.$id_video.'?autoplay='.$autoplay.'" allowfullscreen frameborder="0"> </iframe>'; } elseif($tipo_video == 'vimeo'){ $video_player = '<iframe width="'.$width.'" height="'.$height.'" src="http://player.vimeo.com/video/'.$id_video.'?title=0&autoplay='.$autoplay.'&byline=0&portrait=0&color=3D95D3" frameborder="0" webkitAllowFullScreen allowFullScreen></iframe>'; } return $video_player; }

It will not effect non-https sites, but those that are will not be able to embed videos.

Hi, there is no such feature for uploading files.

It is possible to avoid http or https from the video url like:

The video works without problems.

Give me your email to send you the update.

I’ve already modified that for videos. Images is the real problem. If you can’t upload you need something where it will only embed images with a https address and return just a link for http.

When I copy the shortcode on this page and paste to my WP site, it didn’t work.


When I copy the shortcode on this comment page, it works.

I think there is something wrong with the text encoding in Chrome.

Hi, I need the url of your website to see what is happening.

Hi. can’t open Ajax Comments window on my mobile device. How I can fix it? Thanks.

mmm Sorry but I do not have that device to do the tests. Have you tried it from an android?

No, but I’ll try

No, but I’ll try

This looks very interesting. The presentation is very nice and clean. One question, though: I tried the demo and despite entering a valid e-mail address, my Gravatar did not show up. I assume it pulls from WordPress profile or something? Is there a (reasonably easy) way to have it pull Gravatars based on e-mail address entered? Can you require the e-mail address field? (Obviously, I would add a disclaimer that e-mail address are not displayed public and never shared).

Also, it would be perfect if it would load the initial comments via PHP (for SEO goodness) but use Ajax to do any updating (such as adding comments/replies).

Anyway, I look forward to your response on the profile pic thing. This project doesn’t have user accounts, so I would like the profile pics to be pulled from Gravatar if possible. Thank you, Daniel

Hi Daniel

My plugin is optimized for gravatar support, I just added a new comment with an email associated with gratavar.

The email field is always mandatory

Mmm indeed, so far all initial comments are loaded by Ajax when loading the page.


1) This plugin does not work on https sites. This will not prevent non-https sites, but those who will not be able to integrate videos.

2) Is there a way to delete the comment form on publication types on “post-new.php”? Currently he says that comments are closed on these types of publication ..

And only allow the comment form on custom publishing types? “Post-new.php? Post_type = blog_posts”


Thank you

Ok, for now the only way to do that is by adding the following code in your php files:

<?php if( is_page('blog-page') ){ if(function_exists("display_saic")){ echo display_saic();} } ?>

Thanks, but what is the php files:

In the files of your current theme, for example single.php, page.php

Add that code where you want to display the comment box, and you should change ‘blog-page’ to the pages where you want to display the comment box.

Hi Max, Love this plugin! Sorry for the silly question- You mentioned that if I’d like to have multiple comment forms on one page I just need to put the unique post IDs in each shortcode. I don’t really understand how you get the post ID if you are putting content on a page with a page builder like Visual Composer. Thanks for the help, Cathy

Hi again,

I realized what you mean, but now I have an issue. I created a page with 3 comment forms via 3 shortcodes, but I can only enter comments in the top one. When I click on the middle and bottom form, the text area pops open in the top form.

Can you tell me what I am doing wrong? I used the same exact shortcode for each of the 3 forms.

Thanks, Cathy

Can you give me the url of your page to review?

Also keep in mind, that only one comment box is supported per post / page. That is if your current page has many post / pages (as in my demo page) you can add one one comment box for each post.

If you’re trying to add multiple comment boxes (up, down, middle, etc.) to the same post, then I must tell you that it is not possible to do that…sorry

Hi Max,

Thanks for getting back to me and my apologies for the multiple posts.

It seems that there is a breakdown in communication because you mention in several comments that more than 1 comment form can be added to a page. It seems that you are referring only to a blog page, not a static page with content that is not a post.

Please add more information to the description section that make it clear to everyone that each post can have only 1 unique comment form and each static page can have only 1 unique comment form.

I bought this plugin just a couple of weeks ago, and I was hoping to put a comment form underneath 12 or 15 videos that I have displayed on a single static page. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to change the set-up of this page to make each video a post with it’s own id. If I can’t I hope that you’d be willing to offer a refund.

Regards, Cathy
