Comments

Comments are objects tailored to the specific use case of User comments. For that purpose, comments have specific features that none of the other yeager objects have, like an own, dedicated approval flow and spam protection.
 
Comments have one of three stati:

  • OK - The default status of a Comment, usually used for Comments that passed quality control (= "approved")
     
  • Unapproved - Depending on the specific application built, this status is usually used to hide a Comment until further notice (that is until its status is changed by an administrator to either "OK" or "Spam"). Refer to your system administrator for more detailed information on how your system is set up.
     
  • Spam - Depending on the specific application built, this status is usually used to permanently hide a Comment. Refer to your system administrator for detailed information on how your system is set up.
 
Comments can be used for the following object types:

- Pages
- Content Blocks
- Files
