I installed the plug-in to try it out, had hundreds of unmoderated comments and upon activation Deeper automatically published them all. Please add an info message to inform people about this before they activate the plug-in. I had to restore my previous situation from a backup (and I was lucky to have one).

This plugin instantly makes your comments section better and more modern. And, it is easier to modify and does not have as many bugs compared to WP Discuz, the other really popular comment plugin. It just works. And looks nice.

English is pretty bad. Could use an update to add some styling options. Opt-in to replies would be nice feature (or subscribe) Removing the website field doesn't remove it from replies. Avatars don't display for me. Maybe include feature where dislike isn't a possibility (only like) So far for my bug report / feature wishlist. Here comes the review! This is an absolute godsend compared to most other comment plugins... works really smoothly, and just enhances the vanilla WP comment system. This deserves more users! You guys need to promote it more 😉

Very useful plugin. Thanks, guys!

This is a great plugin & produces a great looking comment section. It's almost there but two things: 1. It breaks the text line breaks so all your paragraphs that were nicely laid out are now jumbled into one giant mess. 2. The links in the comments are broken now. It doesn't auto-link.
