Members of your site will undoubtedly post high quality content that demands to be commented on. Luckily it is very easy to add the ability for users of your site to post comments on any kind of member feature on the site - events, classifieds, photo albums, coupons, job postings, videos, articles, etc.
To add comments to a specific member feature first sign up for the commenting platform of your choice. We recommend either LiveFyre (a relatively new solution that is the favorite of many developers around the office, and easier to integrate for many people) or Disqus (the longtime market leader of commenting platforms).
Once you have an account, you will be provided code to paste on your site wherever you would like the option to comment to appear. LiveFyre only has one piece of code that you need, while Disqus has a few different pieces of code and may require some additional configuration to setup perfectly (please see the Disqus Knowledgebase for more information about this).
Once you have the code copied to your clipboard, login to the Admin area of your site, and follow these steps:
- Navigate to Content - Edit Post Settings
- Locate the feature you would like to add comments to in the "Edit Post Settings" section
- Click on the "Edit" button for this feature
- Find the Detail Pages tab
- Scroll all of the way down the page until you locate the "Comments Code" area. Paste the code from your commenting solution here:
Click the "Save Changes" button at the bottom of the page
Now if you navigate to a single post in a Membership Feature (a single Video, single Article, single Photo Album, etc), then you will see a comments section appear at the bottom of the page where your users can now post comments.
