Improve Kete's discussion/commenting system

Reported by Kieran P | November 2nd, 2009 @ 10:27 AM | in 1.3 (closed)

  • Add acts_as_nested_set to comments
  • A reply link on existing comments that prepopulates title and tags with the ones of the replied to comment
  • When comment is added, redirect to it (not the top of the commented item)
  • Private notifications for comments should have the link go back to the comment rather than simply the item commented on.
  • Add the date the comment was created in a natural format (currently there is no idea to see how old a comment is)
  • Display the comment being replied to underneath the comment form (try to discourage full comment quoting).
  • having number of discuss items (i.e. comments) on an item show up in the "Discuss" tab, i.e. "Discuss (21)"

Time permitting:

  • stack comments according to hierarchy, ordered by earliest ancestor creation, i.e.

    Comment stacking not implemented. Could get quite narrow after more than one comment nesting. Ideas?

    From AIM conversation:

    10:06 AM
    on the comment stacking
    10:07 AM
    just go one level deep
    i.e. indent only the first child level
    | edge of parent comment | edge of child comment 10:08 AM
    | edge of grandchild comment same as child comment got me?
    Walter McGinnis wonders if we should make it something that can be changed in the theme
    10:09 AMWalter McGinnis
    i.e. the depth info is in the html (maybe class name)
    but the theme rules keep the stacking to only one level by default
    that way wider themes or themes that do other things with their comments can do what they want

    As far as ordering:
    * First comment first child comment * third grandchild comment ** second child comment ? Walter McGinnis
    yes, as you would expect
    the replies are under what they are replying to
