How To Allow Users To Comment On Content / Post Types


Members of the site will undoubtedly post high-quality content that demands to be commented on.  Luckily it is effortless to add the ability for users of the site to publish comments on any kind of member post on the site - events, classifieds, photo albums, coupons, job postings, videos, articles, etc.

To add comments to a specific member post, first sign up for a commenting platform. We recommend Disqus (the longtime market leader of commenting platforms).

Once an account has been created, a code will be provided to paste on the site wherever the admin would like the option to comment to appear.  Please see the Disqus Knowledgebase for more information about this code.

Once the code has been copied to the clipboard, log in to the Admin area of the site, and follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to My Content - Edit Post Settings

  2. Locate the post type to add comments to in the "Edit Post Settings" section and click on the "Edit" button for this feature

  3. On the Detail Page Design tab, find the "Comments Code" area and paste the code from the commenting solution here:

  4. Click the "Save Changes" button at the bottom of the page

Now when navigating to a single post in a Membership Post (a single Video, single Article, single Photo Album, etc), the comments section will become visible and appear at the bottom of the page where users can now post comments.

Also with the Community Comments Add-on there is no need to install a 3rd party Commenting system.
