I've recently setup SilverStripe 3.6.1, created my own custom pages and then installed the comments module (I took the version that works on SS 3.6.1). It took a bit of reading to figure out how to integrate the comments module. Once completed, I could see the area in the CMS to moderate the comments, and in pages, I could see the tick the box that allows commenting. Cool.

So, for my custom pages, I ticked the box to "allow comments", saved these pages and then went to view them. Alas... no commenting module to be seen on the page.

Am I missing something? Do I need to add a $comments in the custom page type? I've tried searching for documentation and haven't found anything to help. It's been a real let down for a CMS that I'm passionate about. I've come from Drupal (ugh..) and while it's unfriendly in the back-end, the documentation is insanely good.

Any help will be very much appreciated! Thanks.

Browsing through code, it looks like you should add $CommentsForm to your (custom) page template.

See silverstripe-comments/code/extensions/CommentsExtension.php::CommentsForm()
