Support » Plugin: WooDiscuz - WooCommerce Comments » 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.

    Hi hoandt,
    Thank you for this review. Please note, that WooDiscuz is not designed to change product review system. It doesn’t have any relation to Reviews. This is a small discussion bard based on comments and it uses own comment type. other Plugins should not use this, they should use reviews and they can use them without any problem. So the issue is you think WooDiscuz creates reviews, but it doesn’t. WooDiscuz comments are not reviews and they should have different comment type. All is correct if you know what is the purpose of this plugin.

    Update: As you know. This plugin adds a separate tab called Discussions. The review Tab stays as another separate tab for Reviews. So you should see the difference between Reviews and Discussions. Other plugin use reviews and they have no any relation to Discussions. So as you can see we have nothing to fix here. We’re not going to replace product review tab. This plugin is not designed for Reviews. It designed for Pre-Sale questions and answers under each product.

    Hi team,

    I was using WooDiscuz as a discussion board, which is for visitors asking questions. Like I said, it’s a very good plugin, nice design and fast load.

    I have to uninstall it because it cause somehow it converts all other “reviews” comment_type to “woodiscuz_review” comment_type.

    The review plugin I’m using is WooCommerce Product Reviews Pro. I have to replace your plugin with YITH one, and they are good together. I prefer WooDiscuz but I had no choice.

    You can execute this simple SQL query to revert back the changed comment type. Put this SQl in Website Hosting Service cPanel > phpMyAdmin > WP Databases > SQL tab. Change the wp_ table prefix if it doesn’t match:

    UPDATE wp_comments SET comment_type = 'review' WHERE comment_type = 'woodiscuz_review';

    Also, please note, that WooCommerce doesn’t set any comment type for reviews. The comment_type field is empty by default. If the way to changing all types to ‘review’ doesn’t work you should make those empty with similar SQL:

    UPDATE wp_comments SET comment_type = '' WHERE comment_type = 'woodiscuz_review';
