comments : Letting users discuss

The comments plugin adds functionality for letting your users discuss by writing comments.



A written text that one user wants to share with others.

A comment is always “about” something, called the discussion topic.

A comment has no “recipient”. When you submit a comment, Lino notifies all users who registered their interest in the discussion topic.

A comment can be a reply to another comment. All comments replying directly or indirectly to a given comment are called a discussion thread.

Comments are stored in the Comment database model.

discussion topic

A database object that is the “topic” of a series of comments.

commentable database model

The application developer decides which database models can serve as topics for commenting by having these database models inherit from the Commentable mixin.

commenting group

A group of users who discuss with each other using comments.
