FAQ

The thread was not created!

Try enabling ‘Display error messages’ in Zoorum Comments settings. Which might help you pinpoint the error.

Why is the number of comments wrong?

The nr of comments will be updated when a user views the post in question or fetches it through ajax. Which means the
static numbers of comments will not change until a proper refresh of the page is done.

The meta-box contains an empty comment rss feed!

Since the comments are replaced with comments from your Zoorum forum the rss feed will be more or less useless, try
to disable it if you can.

What is the plugin prepending my posts with?

The plugin prepends the Zoorum topic titles with the category for the given post. if no category is set, the plugin will use ‘uncategorized’ or whatever the standard fallback category is. If there are multiple categories, the plugin
will choose the prepend like this: 1. the first parent found where both child and parent is categories for post, 2.
the first category in alphabetic order. If the comments are done on non-post-object the plugin will select a fallback
prepend.
