In my hub
http://hubpages.com/hub/EU-FP7-Marie-Cu … F-IIF-tips
there are over 800 comments and at certain time in a year, people look at that hub for guidance, relief and communication.
Is there any way I can convert the comment capsule to a forum like capsule? I added another comment capsule but thats just another comment capsule and did not add any value.
Thanks in advance to those who reply.
You can't do it on hubpages, you would need to set up your own forum elsewhere, and provide a link to it.
yes, i support you. I recommended a forum type comment section few weeks ago too. I would be nice to reply a particular comment but the problem will be the repetition of a comment when responding may cause duplication.
There is no forum capsule, only a comments capsule which basically serves the same purpose. Adding a second comments capsule doesn't help. Not sure what to do really
This doesn't answer your question but the link below has the options available on HubPages at the moment.
I can see that managing that number of comments would be extremely difficult. Hope you find a solution that works for you.
I have absolutely no idea what the post is about but if I had something similar, here is what I do.
I would establish if there were things that people were asking that were not in the article and add a capsule with that information so that the questions wouldn't need to be asked.
I would then delete all the responses. Nobody reads responses after there are more than ten.
Select the best ten responses and leave them there.
the more comment the better. comments continuously add fresh content to the hub and keep the search engines pleased. and more comments mean more keywords too. so deleting comments is the last thing to do for sure.
Actually, I do. And quite frequently, particularly if I'm searching a specific answer to a question.
me too especially in literature and seo hubs.
Marry Christmas to you Irohner.
Aww, I love the little reindeer and bunny...where did you get them?
Of course judicious editing can eliminate repetitive and pointless comments, but if new information is still being added, you never should limit them to some arbitrary number.
I definitely intend to keep all the comments, because people have been using them to chat with each other and they have been replying each other's questions, to the best of their ability.
It would be much easier to establish that forum on that page because everybody who writes marie curie tips, ief tips etc. is getting on this page, instead of the official cordis page because the officials on cordis are simply bureaucrats and they do not provide something a scientist would read.
Anyhew, I hope somebody can come up with some type of solution because I think being too popular should not be a problem on hub pages.
well, before more people visit this forum please, delete the link from your post. too many thieves here. never disclose your successful niches in public. you won't believe that many will shamelessly copy your keywords and write a even better hub and push you down with back linking.
Would it be possible for you to copy the best comments and responses into a separate Hub and link to that Hub from the one where the comments now are? Then, delete the older comments, but leave the most recent 30-40. 800 really does seem like an enormous number to wade through. I would probably read many, but not that many.
Rider, start a forum and link to it. Encourage communication there? Would be easier and would be a nice resource for a lot of people.
When a hub or a blog post becomes that popular you know your on to something and that might mean it is time to start your own forum. Forums are fun and very satisfying to run.

Will having too many comments posted on a hub be a cause for concern? Could too many comments make a hub less google worthy? I have one hub with over 200 and that seems excessive.

This is a two-part question/discussion-starter.First - I recently saw that in my "feedback" section, there was a suddenly much higher number of hubs marked "funny." I don't mind this feedback, but I'm not really particularly humorous, and for the life of me I can't figure...

I'm sure there are many reasons for and against responding to comments left by your readers. What do you think?

This has been perplexing me for a while - has something changed or have I just gone ga-ga?Being in a different time zone from most Hubbers, I rely on being able to click the "Your" button to catch up with who's posted on threads since I commented.Recently I've been missing comments...

That's my question. I refresh my Hub "In the Daze" every quarter or so. The old comments from the previous hub are still there. How do I delete them? Sorry to be so dense. Could you help me with this?THNXMarsha

Last night I couldn't answer somebody's comment on one of my hubs. I tried a few times, and my answer kept disappearing. This morning I added a new comments capsule, and deleted the old one, but now I lost several comments people made (I knew that would probably happen). Now I tried to comment on...
