Logged users will still be identified as authors of their comments.
DBComment plugin allows anonymous on publication.

In plugin settings :

  • Anonymous comments must be set to true

2015-08 - dbcommentplugin - commentaires prives - formulaire

The private comment will displayed as private for the members who have the rights to read it.

If private comments is disabled : 

  • members won't be allowed to publish private comments anymore
  • comments marked as private will stay private, and members of private group will have the rights to read them

2.5 Affichage intelligent des commentaires

 You can enable this mode in plugin properties

This mode hides old comments on a Publication. You can define the minimum number of comments to display with the "jcmsplugin.dbcomment.displayed-comment-count" property.

In the case of a Publication with comments before the last major update, these comments will be hidden, with a visual indication of the last major update, and the number of comments before it.

Example display :

1. Migration vers la version 5.2

La version 5.2 ajoute une fonctionnalité de commentaires privés. Cela nécessite de mettre à jour votre table dans la base de données pour mettre à jour le champ de commentaire privé :

PostgreSQL / MySQL :
update g_dbcomment set j_private_comment='f'; ('f' = false, 't' = true)
update g_dbcommentrevision set j_private_comment='f'; ('f' = false, 't' = true)
Derby / Oracle :
update g_dbcomment set j_private_comment=0; (0 = false 1 = true)
update g_dbcommentrevision set j_private_comment=0;
