I would like to add PageComments to my BlogEntries or BlogSummary, however adding $PageComments in the templates doesn't work (it returns a blank).

I looked at the BlogEntries function on the BlogTree.php page, and the function seems to return the BlogEntry filtered by date or author, so I feel it should work.

Is there a simple way to add PageComments to BlogEntries, or Is not not possible to display multiple $PageComments on one page (in my case the BlogHolder)?

I afraid this is a very nooby question, but help would be appreciated.

Unfortunately I don't have a fix either but I too am interested in a way that works on BlogSummary.ss or BlogHolder.ss

$PageComments definately works on BlogEntry.ss

It seems that when multiple BlogEntry.ss files are called, $PageComments won't work.

It is possible to include facebook comments though but to me it's no good because not everyone has facebook.

I'll be editing the BlogHolder.ss so that people can comment on the new BlogEntry.ss instead and spend more time coding.

This is because of an issue around scope. You see the PageComments form is attached to the *controller*. When use iterate over a set of blog entries (like <% control BlogEntities %> your scope is the BlogEntry.php class (model) not the controller. With the new comments module for 3.0 this would make doing this possible but not implemented just yet.

Thanks for that Willr. It makes sense now.

I Look forward to version 3.0.

I will continue development on my website in the mean time so no pressure for the update then.
