Support & Testimonials

  • Our plugins are made in Germany by a German engineer.
  • All technical requests regarding the plugin will end up in the engineers email account not in asia or anywhere else.
  • You will get support from the guy who wrote the plugin.
  • Maybe this are the reasons why our customers are so satisfied.
  • “Dear WP-Buddy, WOW, thanks so much for super service and great product.”
  • “Thanks WP-Buddy for listening to your buyers. Great support thanks again.”
  • “Thank you so much for the briefing. Awesome services.”

Plugin Requirements

  • This plugin requires: PHP 5.6 running on your web server (if you don’t know how to update to the latest version, read this)
  • A WordPress Version higher or equal 4.4 is needed.
  • Please diagnose for JavaScript Errors before your purchase. Otherwise it might be possible that the rating will not work. Click here to learn more about how to diagnose JavaScript Errors within your browser.
  • Unfortunately we cannot check the plugin with every theme out there. For this we have integrated a “Custom CSS” field where you can correct issues.
  • Please note that this plugin currently only works when your theme is using the internal WordPress get_comment() function to render comments. If it uses any custom callbacks, it will not work. Please ask your theme author prior buying this plugin.
  • This plugin does not allow to rate or resort third-party content (like bbPress forum posts) because these plugins are using their own internal commenting system.
  • Please note that the plugin will not work with other ajaxified comment plugins (ex. ajax pagination, etc.)
