Seamless site comment thread integration

Installation

Go to System - Updates and in the search field enter Flynsarmy.Commentable

Components

Comment Thread

Displays a comment thread.

  • Add the Comment Thread component to your layout, page or partial.
  • Set the Thread Type and Thread ID options
    • Think of Thread Type like a category. It can be 'blog post', 'product', 'event' etc. Name it however you want.
    • Thread ID is a unique identifier within the current Thread Type. If your thread is for a blog post for example, you could use the :slug URL parameter to have it automatically generate based on your post slug.
  • Add {% component 'comments' %} to your page

Comment Counts

A simple component that outputs the number of publically visible comments for a given thread.

  • Add the Comment Count component to your layout, page or partial.
  • Add {% component 'commentCount' type='MyType' id='myId' %} to your page
    • The id and type values should be dynamically passed to the component allowing, for example, display of the total number of comments on each post on a blog category page.

Notes

New comments

As an end user makes a comment, if pre-moderation is enabled, all October administrators will receive a notification email with link to the comment. The comment will sit in a pending state until approved and not be visible to other end users. Deleted comments are also only visible to moderators. All pending comments are also listed in the Notifications section of October Admin - Comments page.

Mailouts

Mailouts use October's queue service for maximum performance. If this is not configured, they may still send out but will provide a much slower experience for your end users.

Moderators

Commentable automatically creates a 'Comment Moderator' group in the Users section of admin. Assign this group to allow frontend users to moderate comments. Backend administrators with the 'Comments - Access Comments' permission are also moderators.
