Full example in Twig

Integration example

This is a full example of how your _entry template with comment support may look like.
It shows a comment form for an entry, and the latest 50 comments.

After a comment was posted, a message is shown instead of the form.

You can use parts of the code in an include or embed for reusability and customizability.


{% extends '_layout.twig' %}

{% block main %}

    <h1>{{ entry.title }}</h1>
    <p>entry contents...</p>

    {# start comments #}
    {# you may want to put this code in an include or embed for reusability #}

    <div id="comments"><!-- anchor --></div>
    {# @var commentsWork \twentyfourhoursmedia\commentswork\services\CommentsWorkService #}
    {% set commentsWork = craft.commentsWork.service %}
    {# check if the user has just posted a comment and provide feedback #}
    {% set justPosted = commentsWork.checkJustPosted() %}

    {% if justPosted %}
        {# show a message not the form #}
        {% if justPosted.error %}
            <div class="alert alert-danger">
                <p>The comment could not be posted.</p>
            </div>
        {% else %}
            {% if justPosted.status == 'APPROVED' %}
                <div class="alert alert-success"><p>Your comment has been published.</p></div>
            {% elseif justPosted.status == 'PENDING' %}
                <div class="alert alert-warning"><p>Your comment has been posted and is awaiting moderation.</p></div>
            {% else %}
