Has this plugin been abandoned?

Viewing 15 replies - 1 through 15 (of 15 total)
  • Seems like it is abandoned. The latest update activity on this has been over 6 months. There are a lot of unresolved issues that are not being adressed which is important for any professional website.

    1. Comment count/versatility of the plugin
    2. Comment moderation. Certain ad networks will not accept websites without any means of moderating their user-submitted content.

    Yes, I think it has been abandoned. Too bad. It showed such promise.

    Any close alternative to this plugin?

    @clouder I don’t think 1 and 2 are possible for Google+ and Facebook given what the API for those services allow. The comments for those platforms reside on the platform, not on your blog.

    @khurtwilliam – The moderation for Google+ or Facebook don’t work for the platform. Google plus comments integration only works if you have a blogger blogspot. Here in wordpress using this plugin, you cannot moderate the comments no matter what you do. The Facebook moderation do no work with Javascript. You put the meta in your header and that will allow a moderation tab to appear within the facebook social plugin, but it does not work with this plugin because it only works if the facebook social plugin is embedded through iframe.

    As long as there are people left on this planet who can learn HTML, Javascript, and PHP, any WordPress plugin can be revived 😉

    Brandon Holtsclaw was cool enough to put the source on Github, so it’s just a matter of forking it, making some changes, and submitting a pull request.

    I added Facebook comment moderation integration and addressed some tab loading issues in Firefox, and everything appears to work in WordPress 4.0. I submitted a pull request, so hopefully these changes will work their way into the official version of this plugin package.

    If you just want the plugin .zip to upload, you can get it here. You’ll need to remove the existing Comments Evolved plugin in order to install it.

    You can see it in action on this WordPress test site I just put up.

    @brandoncurtis Thanks for the pull request, I’ve merged the code into my branch on github and with a few more cleanup’s I’ve been meaning to make I’ll push out an official update in the next few days.

    Cheers

    Does this mean I can git clone your hub and upload the zip to WordPress and it will work? This is definitely the comment system I want so I’ll do whatever workaround necessary to get it on my site.

    @brandoncurtis

    @blindpet: that’s correct. You can grab the .zip, upload it, and it’ll function: https://github.com/brandoncurtis/comments-evolved/blob/master/comments-evolved.zip

    As mentioned, there are still a few bugs.

    OK, just installed it and I get these errors so it doesn’t seem to be working for me unfortunately.

    I just uninstalled and reinstalled it successfully on two different servers without any issues, and it’s running live on this goofy test site: http://test.feed.graveslab.org/2014/09/09/hello-world-2/

    Make sure that you’re uploading comments-evolved.zip, not the comments-evolved-master that you get when you download the entire repo. I’ve placed the .zip file and a .png of my success screen here:

    You need to have full administrative control over your own WordPress install to do this. Make sure you uninstall the old version of the plugin before proceeding.

    Hi Brandon,

    Sorry if I wasn’t clear, the plugin installs successfully, when I go to see the comments on my pages I see all of these variable errors. I even used your zip (same size 67k) and same result. The old version was already removed (you can’t install the plugin it gives an error if a plugin with the same name is already there, that is my experience at least).
