This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



Speakol has created plugins that provide media publications, content providers, popular brands and start-ups an enhanced user interaction with topical media content and new product launches.

Speakol – Speak Out Loud – was originally launched in 2012 as ‘Naqeshny’ (meaning debate with me in Arabic), in the midst of the Egyptian Revolution. It was designed as a free, democratic and open platform that facilitated healthy and critical political debates and discussions around socio-political conditions within the country.

With a 400k+ strong user base, the name change and relaunch corresponds to Speakol’s vision of going global.

Our priorities are to provide a unique service to media content publishers and brands in the form of three plugins: Debates (debate between two presented sides to a story), Argument Boxes (voting up or down on a topic) and Comparisons (discussion based on up to four options on any topic). Learn more here.

We have recently developed the Argument Box plugin for WordPress users for seamless integration into your CMS or blog. The remaining plugins development (debates and comparisons) is in progress.

I have successfully installed the app, but, I need a ID to input into the wordpress backend before it starts working. I have tried, over the course of many days, to try to create an account on speakol to get this id. Every time I fill out the registration form and hit submit, I get an error saying "array". I have tried to contact speakol through their "contact us" form, but, every time I submit the form it navigates me to a blank screen and never submits. Since this has been a problem that has been lasting for days, I believe that this is very indicative of Speakol's attention to this app and their associated support for it.
