ezcomments and approval

Is there a way to approve befor publishing the comments provided by the extension ezcomments ?

You can add an workflow event on your class which use ezcomments only for content modification and users who can comment. It's should work.

Thanks for your reply Daisy,

Did you successfuly try your solution ?

Yes i tried and it works.

I created 2 workflows :

1 / Workflow event approve "Add Comment"

  • Affected sections : all
  • Affected languages: all
  • Affected versions: all
  • Groups who approve content: Administrator Users

2 / Workflow event multplexer on the Comment classe :

  • Affected sections : all
  • Affected languages: all
  • Classes to run workflow: Comment
  • Affected versions: all
  • Users without workflow IDs: Administrator Users
  • Workflow to run: "Add Comment"

Then go into Triggers menu and select workflow multiplexer on content publish before

@Daisy, I'm not sure how it worked. Adding a comment will not republish the object so it shouldn't trigger that workflow.

@Pascal, AFAIK that's not possible for now. Because eZComments is using a different content model from ezpublish object model. Comment in ezcomments is not a object, so the workflow trigger can not be applied here.

For future, basically there should be a possibility to achieve this by some eZComments enhancements for workflow.

I'm sorry, I made a mistake...

I was thinking about comments class instead of comments datatype happy.gif Emoticon
