Comments by SwiftNinjaPro

Description

Add better and more secure comments to your wordpress site.

Comments will attempt to remove html and still allow users to add built-in non-html tags (made by the plugin) for bold, italic, ect. text.

The plugins built-in non-html tags will only run on the front end, which can help protect the backend from getting hijacked.

Plugin will include your old comments and use the same database.

Disables default wordpress comments on any page with the shortcode.

Plugin Includes Some Spam Control Options.

Comments can Optionally be made specific to a query var in the url, so one post can show comments specific to that query.

You can change the background, text, and button colors of comments to better match your theme.

FAQ

Can this plugin show my old comments?

yes, the plugin uses the same comment database as wordpress.

Do all the query vars have to be exact?

no, only the one query var you put in the shortcode needs to match.
If you do not put a query, than the query vars will be ignored, and it will run like regular wordpress comments would per post.

can users add bold/italic text and embed images?

users can add custom tags that the plugin reads to make text bold and add images and urls.
as an admin, you can disable image and url embeds in the plugin settings.
the user adds tags like “[b][/b]”, and the plugin replaces it with “” only if it is on the front end.
the tags get stored as “[b][/b]” to prevent html from running on the backend.
