In this video, we will show you how to allow users to upload images with their comments in WordPress.

Comments are powerful tools for engaging your users and sometimes you want more than just the option for text. Some sites allow images in the comments and that can be a great way to increase engagement on your own site.

If you do not know how to install a plugin, you can take a look at our guide here:

www.wpbeginner.com/beginners-guide/step-by-step-guide-to-install-a-wordpress-plugin-for-beginners/

For this tutorial we will be using the Comment Attachment plugin found here:

Comment Attachment

When you activate the plugin you will go to Settings, Discussion page in your admin area which will now have a Comment Attachment section. You can decide how the attachment field should display and the settings involved in adding the images. These settings include file size, file type, and the title of the field.

All images added this way will be added to your media library where you can edit or delete the image as needed. We would recommend ensuring you have a comment posting guideline to let your users know what is allowed to be uploaded on to your site in their comments.

You can take a look at www.wpbeginner.com/plugins/how-to-block-spam-comment-bots-in-wordpress-with-honeypot/ for one method to help prevent spam comments. You could also require them to be a registered user if you wanted.

You can reduce that number if you like, we use 64MB to ensure it covers most cases 🙂
