You get this error after installing (WordPress version 6.1.1): “Oops.. We couldn’t load the settings panel.We’ll be right back, so please try again in a few minutes” Last update was 2 years ago…

The plugin was installed simply and correctly. I tested it with different devices – it works reliably. The support team is great (helped with the migration of comments quickly).

In theory 5 stars. But: -1 for In Firefox you get stuck at “Login with your Heyoya account”, even with the right credentials it just didn’t go any further than “Login with your Heyoya account”. With Chrome it works, but Chrome sucks with privacy. -0.5 for the need to put in a code into the footer.php, which using an external theme makes it necessary to always update that file after an theme update. Sure, childthemes, but nothing is mentioned like this. Another -0.5, because it sadly not yet works with LearnDash. You cannot use it for leaving a comment on assignments. Although it looks to me LD is using the WP commentary function. Maybe you can look into this at some point. So I’ll come back when you talked to LearnDash one day and consider the 5 stars, maybe even pay for it. All the best!
