New Feature: Comments for Blogs

New Feature: Comments for Blogs

Drop your Wordpress, dump your Typepad, ban your Blogger…because Shopify now has Comments for Blogs.

While Shopify has always had a fantastic, simple-to-use integrated blogging tool, we’re excited to make it even more useful for those looking to replace their traditional blog.

Enabling comments on existing themes is easy – simple create an Article.liquid template and enable the comments functionality.

Comments on a new store is even easier – all our current themes have been upgraded to support comments, just enable comments for the blogs you want.

Feature Highlights:

  • Enable comments on a per-blog basis. If you only want comments enabled on your “Latest Products” blog, but disabled for your “Stories from the Field” articles, no problem. Comments can be configured on a per-blog basis.
  • Comments can be moderated or automatic. You can approve all comments before they go live, or simply allow your comments to be published automatically.
  • Great Spam filtering. Hate spam? So do we. We use defensio spam filtering with customized learning across all Shopify stores, which will provide even better spam filtering. All potential spam is tagged for your review, just in case.
  • Easy to use Comment administration. Comments are marked on your admin page for quick review and approval. At a glance, see the number of approved, pending removed and spam comments.

Feature Highlights:

You can check out the screencast (below), or wiki tutorial and find more details about the liquid template.

    This is fantastic! Thanks for the great new feature, this is going to make it even easier for those clients wishing to trade out their separate + blog combo. Glad to hear from Tobi that a Blogger / WP import is coming as well!

    Dan,

    Just go to your “theme editor” page within your admin panel, and you’ll see the “article.liquid” page. Then, from there, it’s easy to add it to your theme. Shopify has added article.liquid to everyone’s lineup of available functions, looks like.

    offensichtlich, wie Sie Ihre Web-Seite auch immer Sie brauchen, um die Rechtschreibung auf mehreren, Ihre Beiträge zu testen. Eine Reihe von ihnen sind voller Rechtschreibfehler Probleme und ich finde es sehr mühsam, die Realität jedoch sagen, ich werde auf jeden Fall wiederkommen.

    am speechless. It is a unbelievable weblog and very partaking too. Great work! That’s probably not a lot coming from an beginner blogger like me, but it’s all I may assume after having fun with your posts. Nice grammar and vocabulary. Not like different blogs. You actually know what you are speaking about too. So much that you made me want to learn more. Your blog has turn into a stepping stone for me, my fellow blogger. Thank you for the detailed journey. I actually enjoyed the 6 posts that I have learned so far.

    I am not getting notified of any comments to my store blog. Also there doesn’t seem to be a reply for each individual comment. ?? Are there some settings I’m missing?
