Viewing and posting comments

There are 2 types of views for the comments in eZ Comments, an embedded view and a separate view listing all comments. By default the system is setup to show the embedded view with less than 8 comments on a piece of the content. When there are more than 8 comments on a page, all comments are listed on a separate page.

The integrated page with a list of comments integrated with the article is shown in the screen below:

Comments integrated with article page

Users can easily comment on an eZ Publish powered website. The only prerequisite is that the functionality of the comment system is installed. When the user selects the comment functionality he will see a list of all existing comments and a form for commenting this content. The default setting for an anonymous user is to read and post comments. If you are a registered user you can also have more rights, like editing and deleting comments, as described in separate chapters.

Posting comments

The "Post comment" screen is shown below:
