Commenting in Exhibit Pages 2.0.4


I'm not having any luck getting comments on exhibit pages, having tried all the solutions found on the forum and in the read me file re. changing the plugins/ExhibitBuilder/views/public/exhibits/show.php file.

In addition to copying the entire show.php code provided in the read me file, I've tried moving this code everywhere in the provided show.php file with no luck:

<?php commenting_echo_comments(); ?>
<?php commenting_echo_comment_form(); ?>

I'm using Thanks Roy, and the comments box does show up on individual records...



Here's how I've left the show.php file, per instructions though I cannot see the comments:

echo head(array(
'title' => metadata('exhibit_page', 'title') . ' · ' . metadata('exhibit', 'title'),
'bodyclass' => 'exhibits show'));

<nav id="exhibit-pages">
<?php echo exhibit_builder_page_nav(); ?>

<h1><span class="exhibit-page"><?php echo metadata('exhibit_page', 'title'); ?></h1>

<nav id="exhibit-child-pages">
<?php echo exhibit_builder_child_page_nav(); ?>

<?php exhibit_builder_render_exhibit_page(); ?>

<div id="exhibit-page-navigation">
<?php if ($prevLink = exhibit_builder_link_to_previous_page()): ?>
<div id="exhibit-nav-prev">
<?php echo $prevLink; ?>
<?php endif; ?>
<?php if ($nextLink = exhibit_builder_link_to_next_page()): ?>
<div id="exhibit-nav-next">
<?php echo $nextLink; ?>
<?php endif; ?>
<div id="exhibit-nav-up">
<?php echo exhibit_builder_page_trail(); ?>
<?php commenting_echo_comments(); ?>
<?php commenting_echo_comment_form(); ?>

<?php echo foot(); ?>

Good news and bad news.

The good news is that in Commenting version 2.0 you just need to do:

<?php CommentingPlugin::showComments(); ?>

The bad news is that Commenting hasn't yet been updated to work with some changes in Exhibit Builder 2.0. I've added an issue to the bug tracker about fixing it.

Does this mean the Commenting plugin does NOT work with the most current version of the Exhibit Builder plugin?

I don't want to start a new forum topic, if this is the correct forum post.

I would like to be able to display the Comments form and display any actual Comments on my public exhibit views.

That's right. It Commenting needs an update to work with the current Exhibit Builder.

Thanks! I look forward to watching for the update. Building my first exhibit after years using Omeka.
