Comment Box Question

    Lisa HWposted 6 years ago

    I'd like to stop future comments on some individual Hubs.  If I delete the comment box in the editing mode, will it also delete all existing comments?

    Part 2 of that question:   If I couldn't do it that way, is there some other way (other than hiding all comments across all my Hubs at once, which I don't want to because it's only a Hub or two I'd like to end commenting on) I could stop more comments from being added if I want to keep all the existing comments on the Hub?

      If you delete comment box in editing mode then all existing comments will also be deleted.

        That was asked and answered above 8 weeks ago.

    If you delete the comments module, all existing comments will be lost.

    Each comments module can be set so that future comments will not appear unless you approve them.

    You could also add a paragraph above your comments capsule to the effect that you regret that you are unable to accept further comments to this hub, but have kept the capsule to preserve existing comments. In fact, you could leave that as a final comment on the hub as well.

      WE, thank you.  That's what I was wondering.   It occurred to me to try to delete the comment module, but that's what I didn't know - whether all those other comments would disappear with it.  (Do you happen to know if they're "wiped out completely" or if they get stored in the account comments somewhere, the way both approved and denied comments do?)

      I've thought about adding that text/note you mentioned.  I suppose it may be the only way to go.    (I do have all comments across "everywhere" set to "approve first", but that's kind of what I wanted to stop doing on just those few Hubs too.  hmm  )   Guess I'll go with the note approach.   hmm  Again, thanks.

        You are welcome. No, once you delete the module, all comments will be lost forever. You can, however, choose not to display the comments capsule for awhile, then reactivate it anytime.

        When you edit, there is a box in the Comments Capsule that says 'Don't display this capsule'. By ticking this, the capsule and comments are hidden, but nothing deleted.

      I hate to seem like an infant, but for the life of me I can't figure out how to do whatever I need to do so I can have Amozon stuff on my hub.  (Hopefully I will have hubS soon).  Can you please help me?

        You need to apply to become an Amazon affiliate. Once you have been approved, you will then insert your affiliate ID into the HubPages control panel - affiliate settings. Then you will start displaying Amazon ads by adding the capsules made for this purpose to your hubs.

    WE gave you the right answer. Wait for Relache and Marisa Wright for more....

    you can't stop people commenting but you can deny the comments to be shown in the capsule.
    Deleting the capsule will blow all the comments out with it.
    [i am not sure if my sentence was right but i hope you understand what i said]

      Thanks.  That was my big worry about deleting that seemingly empty module in the edit mode.   hmm  Good thing I didn't delete it.   roll

    Lisa.. the comments help to promote movement in your hubs, why stop that instant refresh?
