Upgrading Paged Comments

Upgrading version 2.7 to 2.8

  1. Replace the paged-comments.php file with the one in the latest release. You do not need to make any changes to the config file.
  2. (Optional) If you haven’t edited the theme files, copy over the folders in paged-comments/themes/ to wp-content/plugins/paged-comments/themes/

Upgrading version 2.6 to 2.7

Note: Version 2.7 has only been tested with WordPress 2.5.1. I will not be supporting older versions from now on. I recommend you only upgrade to 2.7 if you’re using WordPress 2.5.1.

  1. Replace the paged-comments.php file with the one in the latest release. You do not need to make any changes to the config file.
  2. If you haven’t edited the theme files, copy over the folders in paged-comments/themes/ to wp-content/plugins/paged-comments/themes/

Upgrading version 2.6 to 2.6

  • To update any 2.6 version, simply replace the paged-comments.php file with the one in the latest release. You do not need to make any changes to the config file.

Note: You may want to check the language/theme folder for new files — although if you’re happy with your current setup there’s no need to copy these files over.

Upgrading version 2.5 to 2.6

  1. Download and extract 2.6 plugin files to a folder locally.
  2. Upload the whole paged-comments directory to [wordpress]/wp-content/plugins/. The plugin files should now be in [wordpress]/wp-content/plugins/paged-comments/.
  3. Copy [wordpress]/wp-content/plugins/paged-comments-config.php to the new [wordpress]/wp-content/plugins/paged-comments/ directory.
  4. Disable version 2.5 in your WordPress admin panel. (You should see both 2.5 and 2.6 listed.)
  5. Enable version 2.6.
  6. If everything is working okay, delete the old paged-comments.php and paged-comments-config.php files from [wordpress]/wp-content/plugins/.

Upgrading version 2.5 to 2.5

  • To update any version of 2.5, simply replace the paged-comments.php file with the one in the latest release. You do not need to make any changes to the config file.

Upgrading: version 1 (only date as version) to 2

  1. Download and extract plugin files to a folder locally.
  2. Open your existing paged-comments.php file from your plugins folder and copy the plugin parameters to a new file. The parameters are everything between the START EDITING and END EDITING markers. Save the file as ‘paged-comments-config.php’.
  3. Replace your existing paged-comments.php file with the one supplied in the latest plugin release.
  4. Upload paged-comments-config.php (created in step 2) to the same folder holding paged-comments.php.
  5. The extracted plugin archive includes a ‘themes’ folder. Look inside and open the subfolder corresponding to the WordPress theme you’re using (or if your theme isn’t listed, choose the ‘default’ folder). Upload the comments-paged.php file to the appropriate WordPress theme folder (found in wp-content/themes/).

    For example, if you’re using the default WordPress theme, copy /paged-comments-plugin/themes/default/comments-paged.php to /wordpress/wp-content/themes/default/

  6. Within the theme folder (where you uploaded comments-paged.php in the previous step), edit any template files that include the line:

    include(ABSPATH.'/wp-paged-comments.php');

    and replace with this line:

    if (function_exists('paged_comments_template')) paged_comments_template(); else comments_template();
