Reviews

Abandoned plugin

TL;DR: it should be great, but it’s not.

You would expect WooDiscuz to be as good as WpDiscuz, but it is not. It totally looks like they just copied old wpdiscuz, made some changes, decided to never develop it anymore.

Bugs:
1. Although most of strings use ‘woodiscuz’ text domain, plugin declares it to be ‘wpdiscuz’. Result – great translation difficulties, can not be done in default usual way.
Why they have this mistake? Because WpDiscuz plugin has ‘wpdiscuz’ text domain. They even failed to change ‘wp’ to ‘woo’ in few places, including most important ones.

2. Some strings are initialized not on action ‘init’ or something like that, it’s initialized in plain php classes constructors. For example,
'wpc_self_vote' => __('You cannot vote for your comment', 'woodiscuz'),

Because of this, I can not use Loco Translate plugin to override their translations: it’s not initialized at the moment this plugin processes it’s strings.

They say they are po/mo translation ready, but I rarely see plugin as un-ready for translation as woodiscuz.

I’m still going to try to use it, though. But I’m afraid it will break some day, and no update will come.
Could you maybe implement it as WpDiscuz apaid addon? I’d be easily ready to pay up to 50$ for this, up to 100$ I’d think but would still buy it. I’m sure it’s really easy to implement on wpdiscuz base: just “if woocommerce, then add tab, render there, option to remove Reviews tab”, how hard is that =(

Good Plugin but conflicted

This is a good plugin, but it changes the meta comment type to “woodiscuz_review” and causes conflicts to other plugins.

I mean other plugins can’t call comment_type “review”, which is default. And worst of all, you can’t get back to comment_type “review” when uninstall the Woodiscuss plugin.

I would give it 5star if the developers can fix this problem because overall this plugin is good.

Please update for WooCommerce V3!!!

Notice: The “woocommerce_product_review_count” hook uses out of date data structures and is deprecated since version 3.0.6! Use woocommerce_product_get_review_count instead. in /usr/www/users/businhqqzk/wp-includes/functions.php on line 3830

I do not see why you guys need to be prompted for this.
