We are trying to modify the plugin functionality. We don't find any hook or filter to disable the comment form for a specific user.

 

If we add a filter here then we can achieve what we want.

@faltushamim,

You should add the custom code in the theme template files and not call the comments_template() function for the current user.

We have some user permission system. Some users can post only public comments and some can post only private comments. We need a way to hide the comment form only from specific users. So the users can't see the submission form but can see the comments. If I follow your suggestion then the whole comment system will be hidden which is not the thing we want.

@faltushamim,

We may suggest the following solution:

  • Install some user role creator plugin,
  • Create some new user role, e.g. "Restrict comment"
  • Change those users' user role to "Restrict comment
  • Then hide the comment form for this user role in wpDiscuz plugin settings.

I do know that I can achieve by following your suggestion. In our case we need a way to to hide the form programmatically. If we have a filter in the line that I showed, we can do that easily without modifying the wpdiscuz plugin.
