Hi Harshad

I need to have the comments from all the languages displayed in each of the pages/posts in all languages.

I found those recent topics

where Harshad says the (old) plugin called "wpml-comment-merging" doesn't work, except with his modification, which he sent by mail to the people posting in those topics.

Maybe Harshad could upload a fork to the WordPress plugin repository with his modification? then we could follow there and have the automatic updates.

would be great 🙂
thx a lot in advance

I have sent you email, with updated file attached.

1) Upload wpml-comment-merging.php to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
2) Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress

Let me know how it goes.

Hi Harshad,

Thank you, your modification is working perfectly well!

if someone needs to do it without the need for you to send mail, basically the modification is adding 2 lines on line 17 of wpml-comment-merging.php
just after :

function merge_comments($comments, $post_ID) {

add :

	global $sitepress;
	remove_filter('comments_clauses', array($sitepress, 'comments_clauses'), 10, 2);

I post it as it is what I was hoping to find in one of the comments I searched here yesterday. I hope it's ok 🙂

Harshad, do you plan to create a fork on ?
or also we can contact the original plugin creator...

thanks again and best regards, this is resolved.

Thanks, this was very helpful!
Any idea how this could work for the review stars, too?
