Comments on GroupJive

9 years 4 months ago #126389 by smilyalien
I've installed GroupJive which seems like excellent groupware, the only problem is that other members of a group can't comment on a bulletin post.

What I really want is for someone to post a bulletin, and other members to be able to post comments on it. Does anyone know how?

Thanks!

There's no comment support on bulletins (1.8), but is a feature to be added into rewritten groupjive (2.0). Thread moved to groupjive boards.

K - any idea when this will be released. After having installed it and moved all our groups from GoogleGroups I just came to the sickening realisation that there is no way for users to respond or comment on a bulletin.

Making matters worse is the standard groupjive message sent to users when a new bulltein is posted that reads:

"- - - - end bulletin - - - -

Link to Bulletin:
Click HERE to view all bulletins online, make comments, and more...~>

* This message was generated automatically. "


Users are inundating me asking where they can "... make comments, and more..."

Appreciate hearing if anyone has managed a workaround perhaps with jComments?

Cheers

Good news everyone! I have now managed to integrate jComments into GroupJive as an interim solution to allow comments on bulletins.

To do this, do the following:

A. GROUPJIVE 1.8:

1. Open file: /components/com_groupjive/groupjive.html.php
2. Around line 316 find the following:
$_GJ_TEMPLATES->addContent($tmpl->getParsedTemplate( 'showfullmessage' ), 'center');

3. directly after that line insert the following:
global $mainframe;
$comments = $mainframe->getCfg('absolute_path') . '/components/com_jcomments/jcomments.php';
if (file_exists($comments)) {
  require_once($comments);
  $comments = JComments::showComments($d->id, 'com_groupjive', $d->subject);
  $_GJ_TEMPLATES->addContent($comments, 'center');
}

and hey presto! you have comments on bulletins!

B. GROUPJIVE some older versions:

1. Open file: /components/com_groupjive/groupjive.html.php
2. Find the following line:
$tmpl->displayParsedTemplate( 'showfullmessage' );

3. directly after that line insert the following:
global $mainframe;
$comments = $mainframe->getCfg('absolute_path') . '/components/com_jcomments/jcomments.php';
         if (file_exists($comments)) {
           require_once($comments);
           echo JComments::showComments($d->id, 'com_groupjive', $d->subject);
         }


Hope someone finds this as useful as I did!

Cheers

Which groupjive do you mean? 1.8?
The following user(s) said Thank You: cliffvt

Yes, exactly - I am using 1.8 - I have now updated the code for older version - not sure which ones but if the line
$tmpl->displayParsedTemplate( 'showfullmessage' );

exists then use scenario "B" in my earlier post above...

Cheers
