Comments Everywhere is a plugin that enables you to insert a comment section where you want by using a shortcode when normally comments are only possible for posts and pages. This enables you to implememt comments in a custom template or a particular page. You can also use it when you want to modify the template. More information can be found on our website: Comments Everywhere Website.
A brief Markdown Example
- Comments where you want.
- Modify the comment template / comment form.
This section describes how to install the plugin and get it working.
- Upload the folder
/wp-content/plugins/directory or install via the wordpress Dashboard.
- Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
- Place the shortcode in your template / post
In a page: [comments_everywhere uid=uniquestring123]
In a template: do_shortcode(‘[comments_everywhere uid=uniquestring123]’);
- How does this work?
When you place the shortcode a post_id gets generated using the uid you passed. This id is used to mimic a post or page and insert a comment form and the comments.
- Using a post_id, will it conflict with the comments of the existing posts/pages?
No, the generated id is such a large number, you would have to write millions of posts.
- When do I need this?
When you want to insert comments on a particular page, or custom template etc.
- Can I customize the comment template?
Yes another reason to use the plugin is the abaility to modify the comment template, as the plugin uses its own file for the template.
