    Hey Nick,

    I'm trying to place the story's link to the comment section in another spot (underneath the title) but I couldn't find it in the comments plugin templates. The 'submit_show_post_extra_fields' plugin hook in the 'submit' plugin looks like it's used for both comments and tags plugins but the template I'm trying to clone has them in separate spots.

    Also, the story comment link in list.php of the submit plugin links to the story page which works fine but kinda useless on post.php (single story page) since it's the same page. Sooo for post.php change to something like:

    <a href="#comments"> 3 comments </a>
    Or something similar to the sidebar comment links e.g. #c1

    A small HTML change in the template but can't find a comment only hook that will show the count. :D

    Update: I think this is it in comments.php:
    echo "<h2>" . $this->hotaru->comment->countComments(false) . "</h2>\n";

    All right! (rubs hands together)

    Two problems there. Let's take them backwards. First, the link that displays the comment count is hard coded into comments.php:

         * Link to comments
    public function submit_show_post_extra_fields()
    '<li><a class="comment_link" href="' $this->hotaru->url(array('page'=>$this->hotaru->post->id)) . '">' $this->hotaru->comment->countComments() . '</a></li>' "\n";
    So you're trying to skip that and directly pull in the comments. What you posted *should* work, but change your code to this:
    echo "<h2>" $hotaru->comment->countComments(false) . "</h2>\n";
    The golden rule here is that templates are outside of the plugin class so they can't use $this. So use $hotaru in templates.

    That should get you your comment count.

    The bigger problem is how to split plugin hooks, and the answer to that is here. :cool:

    Hi Nick,

    There is a strange issue with Comments 2.6 on my end. My hosting won't allow more than 500 emails to be sent per hour, so I went in and disabled sending email to admins after a new comment a few weeks ago, but I'm still getting emails. Is there a way to unsubscribe the admin from all comments?

    Also, I set comments to "automatically approve all," but for some reason, any comments that I, the admin, make are held for moderation under the "pending" status. It only seems to affect me a few select members for some reason. I don't see any bugs in the error log related to the comment plugin, so I'm not sure what the problem is. Any ideas or suggestions?

    Regarding your first point about emails, there are two kinds: notification of new comments, and the actual comments themselves. You can disable notification, but you can't disable the sending of comments. On the Comments settings page there is a field where you specify where comments should be sent, e.g. comments@example.com. All comments (whether you're subscribed or not) are sent to that address and then BCC'd to the individual subscribers. This is done to avoid revealing each subscriber's email address if sent directly to all subscribers. You'd have to edit the code to change if you want to change that behavior, but a 500 email limit by your host severely limits your ability to grow your site.

    As for the second point, are you using Akismet? If so, try disabling it.

    Thanks Nick. I totally forgot about akismet, and I'm sure that's what the deal must be.

    I hate the 500 limit.. it's supposed to be an "unlimited" package, so I'll see what I can do. I have been getting 20-30 emails an hour on comments and DM from the site, and have already had to switch to an external email provider (mail chimp) to send emails out, which gets expensive.

    I have left the "send comments to" field blank, but I get a copy of all comments sent to me anyway. I'll try to find and comment-out that setting in the comments plugin.

    Thanks for the help!

    can users delete their own comments anywhere?
  20. Nick

    Nick Well-Known Member

    There's a permission, "can delete comments". By default it's set to yes for admins and supermods, but no for everybody else. You can change this for individual users in their profile pages, or for entire usergroups in User Manager.
