Comments in Docs are closed – how to open?

  • hi, I have bp docs installed and most of it works fine …

    but I cant get the COMMENTS-Function to work. I have checked in the document-setting “all members of the group” can create comments. but on the documents’ page it says instead “Comment posting has been disabled on this doc.” I couldnt find a way to make this work, something’s wrong …

    my installed versions: wp 3.1.3, bp 1.2.8, bp-docs 1.1.11

    does anybody have a glue?

    Are you sure you’re testing with a signed-in user who is a member of the group? I can’t reproduce your problem on my installation, unless I’m logged out.

    yes – I’m testing with a logged-in user. this happens to me if I’m logged in as group-admin …

    I am also seeing this logged in as a user and as the admin of a group. I am wondering if it is related to a comment permission setting somewhere else.

    So if I go to the dashboard and go to”BuddyPress Docs” find a doc then choose “Quick Edit” and view the post from the Dashboard, the “Allow Comments” is unchecked. When I check it, comments show up. So why is that not being checked by default when someone creates a new Doc? Why is the Docs settings not overriding post settings. I think this can be resolved if we can figure this out.



    I have this problem too ! ! !

    Thanks for the heads up !



    When you post a new document from the administration control panel, make sure to scroll down and click the box [√] Allow Comments.

    Allow Comments
