I'm a newbie to php and silverstripe trying to set up a village website. I want the front page to be mainly news stories. There is no need for people to add comments so I would like to remove this option. Could someone guide me through this. Thanks
In the backend is a checkbox to allow comments.
Thanks for the response. So obvious - I was looking at the 'Blog Holder' page thinking that the pages in the blog would take on its properties from that.
Is there anyway I can set the default to be ' Don't allow comments on this page' or do I have to change it for every entry?
Hi GaryH2UK, welcome to SilverStripe.
Being new you will find the tutorials very useful, see: http://doc.silverstripe.com/doku.php?id=tutorials
They will answer most of these questions for you as well as help you learn how to do new things.
However, this is what needs to be added to you PageType.php file in the /mysite/code/ directory (where PageType is the page type of the page you want to turn off comments):
static $defaults = array(
'ProvideComments' => false
Hope that helps!
Worked a treat, thankyou.
