How do I turn on comments in a Topic?

Want to allow users to comment on your Posts? Follow these steps!

First, go to the Topic you want to turn comments on. Click the [Edit] button and scroll down to the bottom to Plugins. Select the [Explore] button right next to Plugins.

Then, from the array of options, locate [Comments] and click on the icon. Select which options you would like turned on for the comments section.

  • Allow commenting - enables Comments for the Posts published to this specific Topic

  • Allow reactions - enables inserting of Reactions in the Comments section of the Post (i.e. 👍👎😆😥)

  • Require comment approval - users can add comments which show "pending" until an Admin reviews.  Admins can Approve, Reject or Delete the comments.

  • Sync comments and reactions across Topics - allows the same comments and reactions to show for the Post in each Topic where the Post is published.

After making your selections, click [Close] on the "Comments" dialog box.  Then click [Done] to exit the edit view of the "Topic".  Now users are allowed to comment!

Selecting [Remove] in the Comment dialog box, removes the Comments plugin.  Thus, users can't add comments or reactions to the Post.
