Hi there,

Been using the software for a month or so now and I've got a few suggestions that might improve things. I'm posting these as individual threads so people can view and comment on a topic more easily. Please let me know if you would rather I post all suggestions in a single thread and I will do so in future.

Anyway, suggestion 1.

I do like the Jomsocial integration where links to comments are posted in the activity stream (especially with the new plugin). However, I've noticed that when people comment on these links in Jomsocial this comment is not transferred back to the comments thread on the article and remains as a stand alone comment on the jomsocial activity stream. Would it be possible for comments to go both ways... That is to say, when a user comments on an article the comment in linked in jomsocial (as it already does) and when someone comments on this link in jomsocial it is replicated in the comments thread of the article as a quote or something?


I've had a look at the Jomsocial privacy settings and it only appears to cover friends, photos, videos and my groups list. Where would the setting for comments privacy be?

Reply #2,

Had a thought. would it be possible to change the comment link in Jomsocial on these posts so that it redirects to the article rather than opening the comment box on Jomsocial? This would keep all comment replies in one place.

I had a customer who wanted that some time ago. I'm not sure if that was you or someone else, but my conclusion back then was that it was extremly difficult to make or more or less impossible.
Comments in Jomsocial have different kind of privacy, that I cannot replicate in the comment system. So if you post a comment that is supposed to be seen only by your friends, the comment system needs to know who your friends are. But we use the access level system in Joomla so...

That was the main issue.
