Commentary: Overview

Commentary by Emerging Designs -- Released on Apr 06, 2008

The Commentary Plugin is designed to allow your site visitors to comment on pages where you would like comments to be placed. This is similar to how a blog functions. On a blog, typically, after each post by the author a comment section appears where a user can enter some comments and they would then show up on the page.

With Commentary, you simply drag and drop the icon in your Soholaunch admin panel to ANY page (not just blogs) where you would like comments to appear. This provides the form element for the users to enter their comments as well as display current page comments.

In the Soholaunch admin panel, you have the ability to set the plugin to require moderator approval before being posted live. You also have the ability to remove comments you don't want to appear on the site.

6. When the page editor loads, click on the Plugins button on the right and then click and drag the Commentary icon bar to an available box on your page. Save the page.

At this point, users can begin adding comments. To moderate the comments, go back to the Commentary menu (steps 2 and 3 above). Then click on Moderate Comments. You can filter the ocmments by page. Any unapproved comments have an approve link next to them. You can also remove any comments you wish to, whether they are approved or not.

Suggestions for additions to this plug-in
by , Mar 23rd, 2010
I'm delighted to have this plug-in to use on my site, and I have two suggestions: 1. I'd like a box after the name box where people can give a number of stars rating--and it will appear as stars--like Amazon. 2. I want to be able to edit the text for the name box, so it says Your First Name and Age, and I want the name box to show when I'm Moderating Comments, so I can edit the content of the name box if necessary.
This Is It!
