Website visitors like to engage with content through comments. That’s why WordPress created a default comment system for its websites. However, this system is a little outdated for our modern social culture. For example, your visitors can’t vote on comments, share the comments on social media, or subscribe to comment replies — all functionalities that could boost engagement.

For a more user-friendly, modern comment system, you’ll want to expand the comment system functionality in WordPress. The wpDiscuz plugin adds interactive comment boxes to your pages, enables comment voting for visitors, and customizes to fit your brand style. You get all these functions and more without writing a single line of code.

Comment Form Settings

This plugin includes general settings options to configure all your comment forms. You can hide the Leave a Reply header text, show the logged-in username above the comment text field, and set a minimum or maximum number of characters for a comment. You can also enable built-in invisible anti-spam protection to prevent spambots from flooding your site with unwanted comments

Customization

Comment forms in wpDiscuz can be customized to match your brand appearance. There are two general styles: Default and Dark. If your website’s background color is dark, you’ll want to use the Dark style. The plugin also detects all available user roles to allow you to manage commenter labels and name colors by roles. For instance, an editor role who comments on your site could be designated as green while an author is labeled as blue.

The Ads Manager addon creates advertising banners on different locations of your comment box for your business to earn additional revenue. Plus, the Emoticons addon allows your commenters to express their thoughts with emojis (you can even add your own custom emoticons to the toolbar).
