I'm trying to install comments on two of my clients' websites. In both cases, I'm able to display the comment submission form, but the form submissions are not being saved or display. Once I click the submit button, I'm directed to the homepage where #CommentForm is appended to the end of the URL. I have looked through countless forums and Google searches, but I can't find any advice that has fixed this issue. I have followed the instructions from https://processwire.com/docs/modules/guides/comments/ exactly as described, and I'm getting no where. Like I said, this is set up on two different websites and I'm seeing the same issues with both. I assume it's some issue with connecting with a database, but I don't see anything in the instructions on PW's website that says I need to do anything there.
I was just wondering if there are any future plans to extend the comments field slightly? Obviously I know it should remain lightweight as it's a part of the core, but I'll chip in with my personal wishlist for it. Basically my number one wish is for the ability to link comments to member accounts. This would enable us to output their profile picture next to their comments, link their name to their profile, and basically output any information stored within their profile page (gender, age, location) alongside their comment, if desired. The ability to use permissions, roles / dynamic roles to determine who can can edit / post / delete their comments. An option to enable comment quoting on reply (like you can do with this forum). We could then use our own markup to style it etc. Finally, an easy way to determine what page comments are connected to. This would allow us to create a new page and loop through all the pages with comments, thus creating a very basic forum-style page. The latest version of muut follows along those lines by utilising comments to create a central hub or basic forum. Personally I reckon with these additions we will be able to use PW to easily create something like you see on the Muut page above. Thanks.
