FAQ

What is Living Comments?

Living Comments is an AI-powered WordPress plugin designed to automatically generate engaging, contextually relevant comments for blog posts, enhancing user interaction and SEO value. It uses advanced algorithms to simulate real-life discussions, making your comment section vibrant and interactive.

Why choose Living Comments over other AI commenting plugins?

Unlike other AI commenting plugins that uses a single prompt from a set of predefined templates to generate comments, we dynamically employ multiple prompts to craft a single comment or reply. Living Comments can also respond to user comments and may ask questions to ignite further discussions.

How does the comment generation work?

Living Comments goes beyond simply utilizing OpenAI’s advanced GPT models; it strategically employs multiple prompts to intricately craft each comment or reply. By analyzing excerpts from your blog posts and existing user comments, it generates meaningful and contextually appropriate interactions. This sophisticated, multi-prompt approach ensures that every comment not only adds to the conversation but does so in a way that feels natural and relevant, deeply resonating with your content and audience. Such dynamic, AI-driven interactions, meticulously pieced together from diverse inputs, imbue your site with an authentic human touch, enriching the user experience with engaging discussions.

For the best experience and to maintain the highest level of security, we strongly encourage updating to the latest versions of PHP and WordPress.

Are the comments and replies moderated?

Yes. Our platform employs OpenAI’s advanced text moderation technologies to meticulously screen for and eliminate any content deemed inappropriate or harmful. Additionally, we provide a ‘Words to Filter’ functionality, empowering users to customize their moderation settings by specifying particular words they wish to exclude from the comments and replies.

Does this plugin support generating comments in different languages?

Yes, our plugin supports generating comments and replies in 35 different languages, including English, Spanish, Japanese, German, French, and many more, catering to a global audience and enhancing user engagement on your blog.

Do I get new credits every month with the Basic 15 plan?

No. The Basic 15 (Free) Plan is our introductory offer, providing you with 15 credits upon registration. This plan is designed to give you a firsthand experience of our AI-driven commenting system’s quality and capabilities. The “Living Comments” SaaS platform employs multiple prompts to OpenAI to craft a single comment or reply. Due to the operational costs associated with this, the initial 15 credits under the free plan are a one-time allocation and do not renew monthly.

For those who wish to extend their use of our service and access a higher volume of AI-generated comments and replies, we offer a range of paid plans. These plans are tailored to meet different user needs and offer varying amounts of monthly credits. You can explore these subscription options in more detail on the plugin’s Account Overview tab or visit Living Comments Pricing. Each plan is designed to provide continued access to our SaaS platform, allowing for regular engagement and interaction on your WordPress site.

How do I add guest names and dummy users?

  1. Go to your WordPress dashboard, navigate to Users > Add New, and create new user accounts for dummy users.
  2. Fill in the details for each dummy user as required.
  3. In the user’s profile, you’ll see a section called “Living Comments Dummy User Approval.” Here, you can enable the dummy user for the plugin by checking the approval box.
  4. Next, go to the Living Comments plugin’s User Management section and enter the username of your dummy users into the ‘Add Dummy Users’ field.
  5. Make sure to save your settings by clicking ‘Save All Settings.’

How can I exclude specific words from generated comments and replies?

The plugin incorporates robust moderation tools to ensure the exclusion of inappropriate content generated by our plugin, enhancing the quality and security of community interactions. For tailored content moderation, you have the option to specify words for exclusion under the ‘Words to Filter’ feature located within the Comments/Reply tab, ensuring comments and replies adhere to your community standards.

What if I encounter an issue with the plugin?

You can reach out to our support team via our website’s contact page.

Is it compatible with all WordPress themes?

Our plugin is built to be compatible with all WordPress themes, but if you encounter any issues, our support team is here to help.

Is it compatible with other WordPress plugins like forums, reviews or directories?

Currently, our plugin is only for generating comments and replies on blog posts and does not extend support to other plugins such as forums, reviews, or directories.

Why isn’t it posting comments/replies automatically?

If Living Comments isn’t posting comments or replies automatically, it might be due to WP-Cron’s reliance on site traffic to trigger scheduled tasks. For new websites with low traffic, WP-Cron may not run as expected, leading to delays. In such cases, configuring a system cron job could provide a more reliable solution, ensuring consistent and timely execution of scheduled comment and reply postings.

How often are updates released?

We release updates regularly to improve functionality, introduce new features, and address any security concerns that arise.

I experimented with 2 other plugins before making the switch to this option. What sets it apart are its user-friendly interface, the ability to track daily stats with a chart, and the high-quality comments it produces. The alternatives produced comments that felt too automated since it’s sending one prompt to OpenAI for all comments like, “Write a funny comment about this blog post.” But this plugin, I don’t know how they do it. You don’t even have to input a prompt for the plugin to work and it still gives a more natural interaction and even engages in question-and-answer exchanges. It can also generate replies and keep the discussion going. I read on their website that they use a multi-step prompt system to generate each comment on the backend. I’m on their Standard 300 plan and I’m highly satisfed with it, might even upgrade later to their biggest plan 🙂

Very nice plugin, but the PRO tariff is extremely expensive. OpenAI offers prices that are more than ten times lower; the basic plan should cost 5 dollars.

I tried other AI comments plugins for wordpress and this is the best one. Good user interface, easy to setup and it generates in-depth comments/replies that seem more natural than the other plugins. It’s missing languages but I emailed them and they said they are working on it.
