After playing around with this “plugin” for the last two days, and in trying to dissect its innards, I have to walk away from it disappointed. But, I’m not disappointed because it doesn’t work, in fact it works as advertised, but I feel it is losing a lot of users–like myself–who need it to be much more flexible with their current theme.
I would prefer to use this as a teaching tool, where I have students do deep reading of an article and comment on a micro level. This would work nicely with my social BuddyPress environment, as all users would be able to see the stream of comments. But my theme has been heavily customized for content types and a certain level of usability that CommentPress’s required themes don’t have.
I’d really like to request that your team (?) re-engineers the “plugin” to be just that: a plugin. As it stands now, it is a system that has a significant dependency on a particular theme.
I’ll be keeping this on my watch list for future use, but right now I’ll just hack together a new custom post type for embedding Google docs for commenting.
Thanks for reading,
