No Reply Comments Thread
Use this when the ability to like or reply to comments isn't needed.

Overview

This block is a list of comments or messages by different users, with the ability for a user to create a new comment. It can be added on any object (a topic, a product, etc.).

Structure

  • When this block is added to a page, it is placed within a group called Blocks container 860 (do not rename) on the page. This group contains the responsive settings for all blocks.
  • The block also comes with a data type called t-Comments. This is the data type that will store all of the comments.
  • All of the comments are displayed in RepeatingGroup t-Comment.
  • Button POST creates a new comment.

How to set up

  • Add a field to the t-Comment data type that represents the object on which you want users to comment. For example, if you want users to comment on products, you should add a Product field.
  • Open the comments_onelevel reusable
  • Modify the type of content displayed in the reusable to be whatever object for which you want to show comments. In this case you should make the group type be Product.
  • Modify the data source for RepeatingGroup t-Comment to include whatever filter you need. In this case, you should only include comments that are linked to the Product being displayed.
  • Modify the action that runs when the Button POST is clicked to also link the t-Comment created to the relevant object, in this case the Product that's displayed in the reusable.
  • Add a data source whenever you use the comments_onelevel reusable that links to the appropriate object (in this case the Product that's displayed on the page).
