How to Configure Comment Display and Behavior in the WpDiscuz Settings
The second step of the guide to the WpDiscuz WordPress plugin will take you through the process of configuring the display and behavior of comments on your site.
Step 1) Login to the WordPress Dashboard.
Step 2) On the Admin Panel, scroll down and click on WpDiscuz >> WpDiscuz.
Step 3) The first step on the General Settings section is to choose which post types to display the comment form. Choose between (or all) Post, Page and Attachment. You can then choose where to show the latest comments (either at the top of the thread or the bottom of the list) and turn the Live Updates on/off.
Step 4) You can choose to update the comment list every 30 seconds, 1 minute, 5 minutes, and longer by using the dropdown menu provided.
Step 5) If you wish to hide certain buttons, including Voting, Share and the CAPTCHA field, tick the boxes shown below.
Step 6) You can set the rules at to who can comment and how much privacy they have when they do comment by ticking Yes/No next to whether users must be registered to comment, and whether their logged-in username link shows at the top of the main form.
Step 7) You can choose to hold comments back for moderation, or, if you trust folks to be nice, you can allow them to go straight through without being checked. Tick the boxes shown below if you also wish to hide the Reply buttons for guests and members, and to hide the Author Titles for their comments.
Step 8) The number of comments can get to huge numbers if conversations start flowing (or they get heated). Using the settings below, you can choose how many Comment Threads Per Page there are (default is 5), and change the maximum depth of comment pages (Default is 3).
Step 9) Tick the box below if you wish to adhere to the WordPress Date/Time format. Go to Settings >> General if you are unsure what this is at present. You can also choose to keep the email notification checkboxes on the comments forms checked on default by ticking the second box below.
Step 10) Sometimes your users will want to make up their own minds as to whether they are notified of further comments and replies to their own comments. Tick the boxes shown below if you want users to have this choice. It is a good idea to leave all of these on so that users have a choice as to whether they receive more updates.
Step 11) The final section is for setting the size, colour and CSS code for the text, background and links in your comments sections. Click on the Save Changes button when you’ve finished setting them. If you are unsure of the colour coding schemes, click here for a quick guide.
