Improved comment handling

Improved comment handling

We've added some useful features for handling comments: when viewing an article with comments within the administration pages of your blog (or portal), you can mark multiple comments and delete them all at once - way easier than confirming every single deletion of each comment.

Also, the comment monitoring feature now also removes the corresponding comments. Confused? Well, in order to be informed about new comments, we distinguish the comment and a notification about that comment. The comment notification screen displays all notifications about new comments. If you've read them, you can delete those notifications, and the comments will still be accessible on the blog. However, if you wanted to delete both the notification and the comment, you'd have to switch to each article where a comment was posted, and remove that comment manually. Now, when deleting a notification, we simply ask whether you merely want to remove the notification or the comment as well. Way easier.

More improvements coming soon!

i cannot find anything stating privacy within comments students can leave. i would like for my students to be able to leave comments, but i would like to approve that they are appropriate before they are publicly displayed so that if a student posts something rude, or against our school's rules it will not be seen by any other faculty members, or students. is this feature available?

Yes, you can enable comment moderation. Once enabled, you'll find a list of any unapproved comments made by your students and can choose to accept or reject them.
