Usage

For help with installing plugins please refer to our Plugin installation guide.

To Use:

1. Install the Comment Indexer

  • The Comment Indexer is designed to index comments from the time it is installed on your network and needs to be installed for the Recent Global Comments Feed plugin to work.
  • The Comment Indexer can’t index posts that were published prior to being installed. i.e. comments published prior to it being installed won’t display in your global comment feed.

2. Install the Recent Global Comments Feed and then visit Network Admin -> Plugins to Network Activate the plugin.

3.  Your new feed is created at

http://yourdomain.com?feed=recent-global-comments
  • The Recent Global comments feed is for comments on public sites only. Comments from privates sites don’t appear in the feed.
  • You can check if it is working correctly by posting some new comments and confirming they appear in your global feed.

4.  A Recent Global Comments feed widget is added to Appearance > Widgets of your main site.

  • By default, the widget is available only on the main site of your network.
