FAQ

Can I use this “Before a comment appears” validation method along with the others?

Integration with other validation methods is not developed yet. Next release? 🙂

How can I change the mail texts?

Actually there are 2 options:

  1. Edit or create the xx_XX.po file for your WP active language and generate a xx_XX.mo.
  2. Also you can use WPML plugin to translate all your plugins like themes. But remember to delete the languages folder. 🙂
