  • Plugin Author gVectors Team


    This is a major version update!
    You can find all information about the new wpDiscuz v7 here:

    As you can see, we have jumped from 5.3.5 version to 7.x.x, so you should understand, that lots of things are changed. This is a totally different wpDiscuz plugin. Therefore, we recommend you follow these steps before updating to version 7:

    1. wpDiscuz 7 template and style is fully changed. We’re really sorry, but you’ll lose your comment section Custom CSS Style and old wpDiscuz template customization in the active WordPress theme /wpdiscuz/ folder. If you don’t have customized wpDiscuz template files, just ignore this note.
    2. We recommend to check wpDiscuz v7 demo to make sure you like it.
    3. Create a test/dev/staging website and try it, make sure it works fine for you.
    4. Try it with the plugins you use on your live website. Make sure it’s compatible with all them.
    5. If you have cache, CDN or optimizer/minifier plugins, you should delete and purge all kind of caches right after the update. This is the most important step. If you use LightSpeed Cache plugin, please follow to this instruction and disable the Image Lazy Load option.
    6. If all is ok, and you’ve decided to update to the v7, please follow to the Update v7 Documentation
