El plugin tiene muchas funciones y muy útiles, fácilmente personalizables y con una interfaz muy clara. Faltaría traducir la interfaz al castellano en mi caso, veremos si es posible colaborar en la tarea.

This plugin upgraded our comment user experience beyond any expectation. Very powerful and convenient. Kudos to the developers. Edit: also had few issues for which we needed support from the team. Dev team is very responsive and supportive, so another reason to use this plugin.

Thanks to the development team! This is by far one of the best (free) plugins I’ve ever downloaded! Even your marketing strategy is perfect. Give people something they can use that has real value and offer them additional functionality. You guys are the best and deserve more than the 5 star rating I am giving you. Keep up the good work.
