Inserting comments on some categories only

Post by fabio42 » 17 Apr 2020, 20:49

Hello !
One question about comments and categories ...
I have Jcomments installed on my website and activated it for categories but would like to restrict that to some of them only. What should I do ?
Jcomments normally offeres the possibility to insert code like {jcomments off} in articles when you want to disable comments on individual articles. I tries to insert the code in the editor but it is not understood as code (it appears as any words), so I guess that it's not possible ? :idea:
Thanks for your help !
Fabio

Hi, yes, there is no such option for Jcomments in Phoca Download :-( so this needs to be customized directly in the code :-(

OFFTOP
Sorry, that is off topic. But it would be nice if there were other options for connecting a comment system (for example, Discuss or RSComments).

JComments is very outdated. Unfortunately.

Hi, if there is somebody who will implement DISCUSS, I am of course ready to merge such changes.

But mostly commenting system can be implemented per e.g. module, like e.g.:
https://www.phoca.cz/documents/62-phoca ... nts-module

So the question is, it is really needed to implement it to core component and have it in some time obsolete or it is not better to paste comments to the site per module? (so the comments will be unique for all the website) :idea:

I can imagine, external plugin can have options like displaying only in specific extension, view or ID (like category ID, or file ID, etc.) Or parameters like excluding in such categories, including in such categories, etc. etc.
