WP-Ajaxify-Comments hooks into your comment form and adds AJAX functionality - no page reloads required when validating, posting or updating comments
It is recommended to use the plugin's debug mode that can be enabled on the plugin's settings page ("Settings > WP-Ajaxify-Comments"). After enabling the debug mode use a browser that supports console.log(…) e.g. Firefox with the Firebug extension or Google Chrome and open a page that contains a comment form. If the plugin is not working you will most likely find an error message in the console saying that one of the selectors does not match any element.
If your theme does not use the default IDs for the comment form (
#commentform), the comment container (
#comments) or the respond container (
#respond) you need to go to the plugins settings page and provide the proper selectors.
Please note: If you don't succeed in configuring the proper selectors, please don't hesitate to ask a question the plugin's support forum or send me a private message. The plugin is highly customizable and I'm not aware of conflicts to any themes or other plugins that cannot be resolved. I would kindly ask you make a small (PayPal) donation when I'm able to find a working configuration for your customized WordPress site. All donations save future development and support of the plugin. Thanks in advance!
There are problems when using an old jQuery version. The plugin was successfully tested with jQuery 1.4.4 and above.
The debugging mode does not work in Internet Explorer 8 (and older versions); please use Firebug, Google Chrome or Internet Explorer 9 or above for debugging WP-Ajaxify-Comments.
Please see also the "Known incompatibilities" section.
Since the plugin hooks into the DOM that is generated by the theme, there is no guarantee that the plugin will work with every theme. Basically, the plugin uses (jQuery) selectors to find the elements like the comment form and the list of comments. Please go to the plugin's settings page to customize these selectors if the default selectors don't match the elements in your theme.
There is no guarantee, but (as written above) the plugin is highly customizable and I'm only aware of a few conflicts to any themes or other plugins that cannot be resolved (see section "Known incompatibilities" below).
