WPML comment merging
[resolved] Comment merging not working (again) (5 posts)

    I have a website in 2 languages (english and dutch). I use Polylang. On the website is a guestbook which uses the standard commenting system of WP. One page is a designated guestbook page with a translated companion. On both pages comments have been made: more than 2000 on the dutch page, 10 on the english page. I wanted to have those comments merged. Therefore I am using the WPML comment merging plugin: the version which is available here: https://github.com/jgalea/wpml-comments-merging

    This version incorporates the changes suggested by Simon Wheatley which seam to work for a lot of people. The original proposed changes are in this thread:

    I cannot get the merging to work however. Stumbling on the same problems everyone had a while back: returning the correct number of combined comments on both the original article/page and the translated article/page. But both pages only display the comments made on their own page, not all comments combined.

    Has anyone stumbled upon this problem again? Is the plug-in no longer compatible with the latest WordPress I am using? (3.7.1)

    Hi rodneyyades,

    have you found a solution for that?
    I am also trying to merge comments, but used the code written at this address http://wordpress.org/support/topic/multilang-comments-hightlight-post?replies=4

    and it doesn't work..

    I was too fast. It's not working.
    One page with +9000 comments, the translated page has four comments.
    Comments aren't merged.

    Hi rodneyyates,

    I ended up using qTranslate instead, the comments are merged by default :)
