Configuring Commenting

Administrators perform this task.

If your Brightspot deployment is missing any of the following configuration options, contact your Brightspot developer.

  1. From the Navigation menu, select Admin > Sites & Settings.

  2. In the Sites widget, select the site on which you want to configure commenting. If you want to make commenting available on all sites, select the Global site, from which all other sites can inherit settings.

  3. On the Front-End tab, scroll to and expand Community, then set the content types to allow commenting.

  4. Click Save.

If the Users plugin is enabled and configured on the site, registered account users can now submit comments on all assets of the specified content types.

Note that you may have assets on which you do not want to allow comments, such as an article about a controversial topic. You can disable commenting at the asset level, as follows:

  1. Open the asset on which you want to disable commenting.

  2. On the asset’s Content Edit form, click Overrides.

  3. Scroll to Feature Overrides.

  4. On the Disabled Features field, select Commenting.

  5. Publish the asset.
