Enable/disable comments[edit source]

How do you stop comments on articles?Paulfirmin 22:31, October 14, 2010 (UTC)

Currently, you can not prevent comments on one article, but you can stop them on blog posts by unchecking the commenting box when you are editing your blog post. --Sarah (Help Forum) (blog) 18:45, October 15, 2010 (UTC)

I want to disable comments on article --Saturngod 04:06, October 15, 2010 (UTC)

If community decides it does not want comments on their article pages, they can be disabled by staff by sending an email to Special:contact. Best, --Sarah (Help Forum) (blog) 18:45, October 15, 2010 (UTC)

If your wiki has talk pages for every article, is it possible to change it to bottom of the page comments? NeocarleenTalk 07:16, March 5, 2011 (UTC)

Yes, you can send a message to Special:Contact and Wikia will give you comments instead of talk pages.  Monchoman45  Talk  Contribs  Skystone  14:46,3/5/2011 

Warning message[edit source]

Hello, I want to add a warning message to prevent abuse from people who comment on my wiki. --Vic201401 01:58, June 24, 2011 (UTC)

Comment replies notifications[edit source]

Probably shouldnt be asking this here, but how do I get notifications of replies to my comments? I connected using FB if thats any help. -- geeneeyes 16:53, August 10, 2011 (UTC)

User talk pages[edit source]

Hi, I'd like to know how can I get comments on user's talk pages? --TeamCullen 19:11, August 17, 2011 (UTC)

Enabling comments for a particular namespace[edit source]

Is it possible to enable comments for one namespace, but leave it disabled for others? I'm an admin from Anne of Green Gables Wiki and the general consensus is that we much prefer talk pages to article comments (though we have message walls enabled). But I noticed that blog posts have comments instead of talk pages. Is there a way to enable comments for a particular namespace but leave talk pages on the rest? *Ginny*leave a message 02:28, February 25, 2013 (UTC)

Yes, Comments can be enabled for specific namespaces by Wikia staff. Please write in to Special:Contact with the details of your request. It's good to have community consensus about this type of change, of course.

How to reply to a reply?[edit source]

How do I reply to a reply to a comment? Person A made a comment, person B left a reply, how do I reply to B's statement? Banaticus (talk) 04:11, April 18, 2013 (UTC)

Main page[edit source]

My main page doesn't have a comments section, how do I add one? —This unsigned comment is by WarCrimes (wallcontribs) 15 June 2013. Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Advertising on this Site Sucks[edit source]

Too many advertisings on this site...loads the computers down and insults our capabilities to get information. Just saying...enuf is enuf! Stop being greedy or no one will come! —This unsigned comment is by (talk) 14 September 2013. Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Advertisements pay for Wikia to exist. But this isn't a suggestion for improvement to the "Help:Comments" article, so it's a concern better voiced on the forum. Thisismyrofl (talk) 04:44, September 14, 2013 (UTC)

Only allowing registered users to comment[edit source]

Talk Pages can be protected to only allow registered users so could you add protection capabilities to this feature please?FortressMaximus #2014YearofMecha (Talk) 09:44, September 28, 2014 (UTC)

Editing comments[edit source]

I come from Death Battle Fanon Wiki. How do you edit comments? 16:47, January 20, 2015 (UTC)

You can edit your own article/blog comment usually by hovering over it (in the comments section) then a small "edit" icon will appear with a pencil next to it. Click the edit text. – Ozuzanna 16:50, January 20, 2015 (UTC)

Login required[edit source]

Help, i can't comment!!! When i scroll down to the comments section i see no box and just a message that says "Please log in to post a comment on this wiki.".

What do i do? I seen people who didn't have an account comment before!!! So how can i comment?!!! 19:28, April 17, 2017 (UTC)

One of the Admins or Bureucrats should put off the Anonymus Edits.--latest?cb=20100316194914&path-prefix=itCavaX 19:31, April 17, 2017 (UTC)
Editing for anonymous users might have been disabled for that wiki. You just need to register an account and you'll be able to comment. -- Cube-shaped garbage can 19:44, April 17, 2017 (UTC)

Enabling replies on dpl forums?[edit source]

I'm trying to format my wiki-style forums so that the thread pages include reply boxes. Is it possible to add comment boxes & functions to these pages through a template or something? KyuKyu (talk) 00:09, April 29, 2017 (UTC)

Adding a button to flag comment as inapropriate[edit source]

It would be nice to have a button to be able to flag a comment to be reviewed by a moderator, with possibly a textbox to specify what's the problem, if not obvious. Aylatan (talk) 10:03, June 6, 2017 (UTC)

How can you add comments when you're on the phone?[edit source]

I remembered the time when I saw someone comment that they should delete the unessesary page, but they can't edit when they're on their phone.

So, if they can comment with their phone, then WHY CAN'T I FIND OUT HOW TO ADD COMMENT WHEN USING THEIR PHONE?!??!!! I'M SO CONFUSED!!!!!!!!!!! DX Nin10doGMod (talk) 00:45, June 18, 2017 (UTC)

Hey - right now the only way to comment on your phone is to use the browser's "Show desktop site" - you'll be able to edit and delete comments via that. noreplyz talk 07:06, June 18, 2017 (UTC)

Can comments be moved?[edit source]

Can comments be moved if they're made on the incorrect article?FortressMaximus #WeLoveLegends (Talk) 05:34, July 24, 2017 (UTC)

Moving comments aren't supported. noreplyz 00:07, December 25, 2017 (UTC)

Post on an article[edit source]

ScruffymewYTScruffymewyt (talk) I cant post on an article and Idk why. It says You cannot post on this article is it because of my account age? Plus there is alot of comments even though some were about 1 minuete ago.

Hey ScruffymewYT, where are you trying to post a comment? The wiki you're editing may have an abuse filter which could be preventing your comment. noreplyz 00:07, December 25, 2017 (UTC)

Recent Comments[edit source]

I'd like to know if you could have something like the Recent Activity list except there are recent comments since I do not get notifications for comments and there are constant updates on pages, I miss a lot of comments. Thank you, SascaWolf (talk) 00:12, February 18, 2018 (UTC)

I think you can use <activityfeed exclude="user, main" /> , for more help Help:Wiki_Activity/tag ★ Minato826 ✉ VSTF 00:35, February 18, 2018 (UTC)
You can also use {{Special:RecentChanges|namespace=1}} if you prefer viewing it as a Recent Changes log. -- Cube-shaped garbage can 05:56, February 18, 2018 (UTC)

How Can I Comment?[edit source]

I Can't Comment!

You create an account and log in? --Tupka217 17:11, June 12, 2018 (UTC)
Some wikis have disabled the commenting feature to anonymous editors; you have to log in and comment. You see anon comments because those were posted before the feature was disabled. 21:20, November 13, 2018 (UTC)

How Do I Make My Wiki Require People To Log In To Comment?[edit source]

How Do I Make My Wiki Require People To Log In To Comment?

Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

You can't. Because you need administrator rights to modify the wiki features, and that's going to be impossible for someone that doesn't even have an account to use. You'd have to contact the administrators of that wiki on another wiki that does allow anonymous editing, though it's unlikely that they'll allow anonymous editing just because you ask them to. ― C.Syde (talk | contribs) 09:06, June 13, 2018 (UTC)

Cannot add comment to the article[edit source]

I need help. Everytime I go to comment on a wiki, it says, "You cannot add a comment to the article." I have an Fandom account (and I believe it is verified), and I am not blocked from anywhere. Could someone explain this to me? If this can be fixed, how to fix it? ThisIsGreatness (talk) 20:30, June 21, 2018 (UTC)ThisIsGreatness

Which wiki are you encountering this on? -- Cube-shaped garbage can 20:42, June 21, 2018 (UTC)

It looks like only autoconfirmed users can edit, and therefore comment, on ESB. -- Cube-shaped garbage can 21:54, June 21, 2018 (UTC)

Can't edit my own comments[edit source]

On my comment (on a message wall), when I hover over More, it only shows Hstory. I do not see Edit anywhere. Can anonymous editors edit their comments? 12:13, November 13, 2018 (UTC)

Anonymous users can't edit their own comments.User:Yuusuke Takazaki/S|13:09, November 13, 2018 (UTC)
I am curious about this actually, why can't they? Anonymous or not, it's still their own comment and I believe they have the right to. I'm not trying to request or anything, but I'm asking why it's like that. I would appreciate any helpful feedback, thanks. 21:14, November 13, 2018 (UTC)
Unlike passworded Registered accounts with Usernames, Anon contributions are done under the IP they connect with at a particular date and time. Because IPs *can* change, sometimes when the device is turned off and back on, there is no guarantee the next time that IP connects to FANDOM that it is the same user. So, no editing IP/Anon comments. Love Robin (talk) 23:41, November 16, 2019 (UTC)

comments help.[edit source]

Whenever I delete a comment, it looks like this: "This answer has been removed" I hate being there how do I remove it ??? —This unsigned comment is by Alfa2010aj (wallcontribs) 16 November 2019. Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

Are you talking about where you have removed a thread, it shows that message? It let others know that people have replied to a thread but remove it afterwards, and will show in the thread history. There is AjaxThreadDelete which allows you to completely delete it (without removing it and/or closing it).

I can not turn on comments for my Wiki[edit source]

On my Wiki, there are no comments at the bottom of the page, and I can not turn them on.--LittleAwesomeApple (talk) 23:48, May 28, 2020 (UTC)

Article comments are not yet available on wikis created after March 2020. They probably will be available in the future, as part of UCP. რპიδპა2 MW/Talk x Contribs x Contact Me

Templates in Comments[edit source]

I just noticed this change in the comments and now I'm no longer able to use some templates in the comment section. Was this intentionally removed or is there a way to allow templates that I am not aware of? User:Double Slap/sig 23:41, November 2, 2020 (UTC)

Disable comments on a single article[edit source]

Is there any method to disable comments on a single article like This page.

Yes, you can use the stylesheet LockComments written by JustLeafy. ~Creeper (TCG) 07:42, November 5, 2020 (UTC)

Deleted Comments[edit source]

Ever since the update I noticed deleted comments simply appear greyed out with a red notice thingy and a little 'Deleted by Wildheart970'

I run an otome wiki and we see a lot of trolls and inappropriate comments. Is their any way to actually competely delete these comments? ~ Wild 07:52, December 18, 2020 (UTC)
