Grav Comments Plugin

The Comments Plugin for Grav adds the ability to add comments to pages, and moderate them.

Installation

The Comments plugin is easy to install with GPM.

$ bin/gpm install comments

Or clone from GitHub and put in the user/plugins/comments folder.

Usage

Add {% include 'partials/comments.html.twig' with {'page': page} %} to the template file where you want to add comments.

For example, in Antimatter, in templates/item.html.twig:

{% embed 'partials/base.html.twig' %}

    {% block content %}
        {% if config.plugins.breadcrumbs.enabled %}
            {% include 'partials/breadcrumbs.html.twig' %}
        {% endif %}

        <div class="blog-content-item grid pure-g-r">
            <div id="item" class="block pure-u-2-3">
                {% include 'partials/blog_item.html.twig' with {'blog':page.parent, 'truncate':false} %}
            </div>
            <div id="sidebar" class="block size-1-3 pure-u-1-3">
                {% include 'partials/sidebar.html.twig' with {'blog':page.parent} %}
            </div>
        </div>

        {% include 'partials/comments.html.twig' with {'page': page} %}
    {% endblock %}

{% endembed %}

The comment form will appear on the blog post items matching the enabled routes.

To set the enabled routes, create a user/config/plugins/comments.yaml file, copy in it the contents of user/plugins/comments/comments.yaml and edit the enable_on_routes and disable_on_routes options according to your needs.

Make sure you configured the "Email from" and "Email to" email addresses in the Email plugin with your email address!

Enabling Recaptcha

The plugin comes with Recaptcha integration. To make it work, create a user/config/plugins/comments.yaml file, copy in it the contents of user/plugins/comments/comments.yaml and uncomment the captcha form field and the captcha validation process. Make sure you add your own Recaptcha site and secret keys too.

Where are the comments stored?

In the user/data/comments folder. They're organized by page route, so every page with a comment has a corresponding file. This enables a quick load of all the page comments.

Visualize comments

When the plugin is installed and enabled, the Comments menu will appear in the Admin Plugin. From there you can see all the comments made in the last 7 days.

Further improvements to the comments visualization will be added in the next releases.

Email notifications

The plugin interacts with the Email plugin to send emails upon receiving a comment. Configure the Email plugin correctly, setting its "Email from" and "Email to" email addresses.

Things still missing

  • Allow to delete comments from the Admin Plugin
  • Ability to see all comments of a page in the Admin Plugin
  • Ability to reply to a comment from the Admin Plugin
  • Auto-fill the comment form when a user is logged in
You can’t perform that action at this time.
