Tell me more about this Comment Redirection Message

The Comment Redirection Message displays at the bottom of each post, linking visitors to a Google+ post you entered where you want to house that post's comments.

How do I customize the message template for my theme?

You can use the existing CSS classes on the Comment Redirector Message Template or create a new template from scratch. You can customize classes in your theme's CSS stylesheet or use /css/public.css in the comment-redirector plugin folder.

I have to go to Google+ and first create a link back to the blog post?

That's right. Then copy the Google+ post permalink and paste it in the "Comment Redirection Url" field on the post's Quick Edit form. At that point the Comment Redirection Message will display at the bottom of the post.

The comment redirection message is displaying along with my blog comments!

The Comment Redirector plugin does not hide or disable any existing comments on your blog. It is assumed that Comment Redirector is your blog's sole comment service and that blog comments are otherwise disabled.

I performed the installation steps but no Comment Redirection Message displays on my posts

The comment redirection message only appears if the post has a Comment Redirection Url property.

What properties can I, um, plugin to the Comment Redirection Message?

The Comment Redirection Message supports the following string substitutions:

  1. %comment_redirection_url%. This is the url of the Google+ post (or other service) where the post's comments are displayed and managed
  2. %plugin_url%. The location of the comment-redirector plugin used in urls for displaying images located in a plugin subdirectory
  3. %post_title%. The title of the blog post.

I like the idea of Comment Redirection. What if I want to use Facebook or something else?

You can use any service you want. You would want to change the Comment Redirection template on setup. Apart from that all you need is a Comment Redirection Url for each post to link to the permalink on your service.
