Here are some of the problems often encountered when creating or overloading a content type in CMS Ametys .

  1. What if I don't want articles to be commentable by default?
  2. How can I make comments compulsory on my type of content?


If you can't find the answer to your question, please feel free to consult our forum, in the settings and integration section.


Q.1What if I don't want articles to be commentable by default?

You need to override the article content type, redefine the "comment" attribute and set its default value to false.


Q.2How can I make comments mandatory on my type of content?
I don't want a contributor to be able to decide that a piece of content can't be commented on.

Override the content type if it already exists, and redefine the "comment" attribute with a default value of true.

<cms:metadata name="comment" type="boolean">
<label i18n="true">CONTENT_NEWS_COMMENT</label>
<description i18n="true">CONTENT_NEWS_COMMENT_DESC</description>

Then, in the editing view of this type of content, don't specify the "how" attribute, so the checkbox won't appear.

<cms:metadata-set name="main" type="edition">
<cms:metadata-ref name="title" />
<cms:metadata-ref name="document-subtitle" />
<cms:metadata-ref name="illustration">
<cms:metadata-ref name="image" />
<cms:metadata-ref name="alt-text" />
<cms:metadata-ref name="abstract" />
<cms:metadata-ref name="content" />
<!--cms:metadata-ref name="comment" /-->
