Comment Configuration In Drupal 6
I spent a frustrating hour searching for the comment configuration area in Drupal 6, so I’m putting this post together to hopefully save you time setting up comments in Drupal.
Basically, in contrast to previous editions of Drupal, comments are now configured by content type – allowing you to permit comments on blog entries, but not on image nodes.
Finding The Configuration Pages
To find the configuration page for each content type, browse to Admin -> Content Management -> Content Types and click Edit on the content type you want to set up comments on.
My reason for wanting to configure comments was to allow comments on my blog and image content types (on my personal blog), and to allow people to enter contact information. I’m also testing Drupal’s new anti-spam system called Mollom, which seems to be similar in concept to Akismet, the anti-blog spam system from Automattic.
If you want some pointers on how to set up comment configuration there are some good comments and discussions over on Lullabot.
