Comment Images 1.11.0 – Now Available

Last week, I had an interesting request for my Comment Images For WordPress plugin:

I wanted to make the default DISABLE so I could turn it ON on the ones I need it, instead of having to go through 200 posts and turn it OFF on 190 posts, that’s all. But if that’s not possible I understand.

Truth be told, this is a scenario that I’ve never thought of, but if you’re someone with a blog who has hundreds (or even thousands) of posts, then being able to disable or enable the feature across the board makes sense.

A few versions ago, I released an update to the plugin that allowed users to toggle the plugin on and off on per post basis; however, the plugin is globally activated for all posts.

Thus, you have to click through each post to toggle the posts on which you want to remove it.

Serious pain point, right?

Comment Images 1.11.0

So in the latest version of Comment Images, I added a couple of new features – mainly UI elements – in addition to the ability to globally enable and disable comments, I also made sure that it played well with WordPress 3.6.

Comment Images 1.11.0

Specifically, this version includes the following updates;

  • Adding an option to disable/enable comments for all posts
  • Adding new user interface messages to guide users through the new options
  • Updated localization files

This particular plugin is one that I’ve enjoyed working on, and that I’ve received a lot of various requests in my inbox for one-off features, so I’m considering taking this one the premium support route whenever it hits 2.0.

But until then, enjoy the new features, keep the bug reports and feature requests coming, and I’ll do what I can to make this the best plugin that it can be.

    Please please please add the old settings back as well, on my site I used to be able to just have a homepage and you can simply upload an image without the need of a post being there. Now you can only add a comment image if there is a post. For the love of god please change this back, this is destroying the whole purpose of my website. Thanks.

      Hey Austen,

      Sorry to hear it’s causing you issues! I’ll be sure to take note of this and make sure that it supports pages as well. I’ll take care of it as soon as I get a chance.

      In the mean time, you can download any of the old versions here. 1.10.0 is the version that probably best suits your needs.

      Secondly, I’m usually totally down with honoring customers requests – and this is no different! – but this wasn’t exactly the most respectful way to ask for something to be added in a free plugin:

      For the love of god please change this back, this is destroying the whole purpose of my website. Thanks.


      Again, I’m happy to oblige and respect the request, but I’d also believe this kind of stuff should be mutual.

      Look for an update to 1.12.0 in the near future.

        Thank you very much I hope this can get sorted. I’d like to apologise for how I worded the comment, I’ve been trying for hours to get different things to work, as I’m new to WordPress I’ve been stressing about it. Again I’m sorry for the comment it wasn’t respectful. Also thanks for replying so soon! I look forward to the update!

          Apology accepted :).

          And you’ve got it – I’ll have an update out as soon as I can get a chance to work on it. Give me at least a couple of days at the latest and I’ll have something turned around for you guys!
