What is the use of this plugin?

Plugin name says everything. This plugin prevents the comments from loading automatically when page/post is loaded. Instead, this plugin will lazy load the comments when user scroll down to comments section or clicking on comment button.

I don’t need loader gif image, can I disable it?

Yes, you can!. Just add following line to your theme’s functions.php or in your custom plugin.

add_filter( 'llc_enable_loader_element', '__return_false' );
How can I change the button text?

Just add following line to your theme’s functions.php or in your custom plugin.

add_filter( 'llc_button_text', function () {
    return 'My Custom Button Text';
});
How can I add a custom class to the button?

Add following line to your theme’s functions.php or in your custom plugin.

add_filter( 'llc_button_class', function () {
    return 'custom-class-1 custom-class-2';
});
Can I use something else instead of loader image?

Yes! There is a filter for this too! Add following line to your theme’s functions.php or in your custom plugin.

add_filter( 'llc_loader_element_content', function () {
    // Use any html element.
    return '<p class="custom-loader">Loading... Please wait.</p>';
});

Great plugin to get faster page loading speed.

Hi Joel, this little plugin is really great and very useful, is helping me to get a better page loading speed. Please keep this little GEM updated and compatible with the future versions of WordPress.

Thank You.

All previous comments disappeared

As much as I really love the idea and would love to keep this plugin… All previous comments disappear once installed.

Maybe it will be OK for some of you, but I spent a lot time replying to some comments so I care about having them there..

P.S.:
changed from 2 to 4 stars after the comments reappeared.
But I still wasn’t able to fully enjoy the plugin functionality.

Great!

Really great plugin which comes with just the right amount of options/filters. Thanks Joel!

I wish the plugin worked with Cloudflare page caching, but it’s still a 5 star plugin without that 🙂

Awesome button

Just what I’ve been looking for; a way to have comments open on every page without them taking over and bogging down the load time. The creator is here to help if you need it, just be sure to open comments on the page you test, or you’ll think the button doesn’t work. Thanks Joel
