  3. Someone replies to your comment

To manage your notification settings:

  1. Click on your name in the top right corner of the comment box and select "Settings" from the menu.

How do I delete my comment?

Any user can delete their own comment from a thread in real time. Simply go to your comment. Click on the downward arrow in the right corner and select "Delete" from the menu. You can also edit your comments by selecting "Edit" from the same menu.

How do I add pictures or video to my post?

One way to include images is by uploading. You are able to add images by selecting the camera icon under the comment box. You will be prompted to upload an image.

Another way to drop in a picture is to enter its URL into your comment. We'll take care of the rest!

Given that animated GIFs are so popular nowadays, our new commenting widget lets you search for recent Giphy images. Select the "GIF" icon to pick from a range of animated pics.

NOTE: When posting an image, you'll still be asked to post a text comment.

For videos, you can simply paste the URL from the following sources and we'll display the video player for you:

  • YouTube
  • Vimeo

Add links to other pages by typing in or copying its URL into the comment box. It will automatically be hyperlinked.

How do I change the order that comments are displayed?

Our new commenting platform allows users to sort the conversation by "Newest" or "Oldest" or "Best" (most upvoted) comments with a click of the mouse. The conversation's latest comments are displayed by default.

I've been blocked from commenting. Why and what do I do?
