Re: [sidcam] Can the Comments Plugin be used for Private Note Taking?

By Jason - August 10, 2012

Hi Sid,

Yes, you can have multiple instances of the comments plugin on a single page.

There are a couple of ways you can do the "private" notes implementation:

1) you can use a custom theme for that instance that filters out comments not created by the currently logged in user.

2) Have it associate comments with records that are specific to the user. For example, if you associate a comment with a saved favorite record, that should only be specific to the person who's logged in. Others won't be able to see their favorite list, so they wouldn't see associated comments either.

Hope this helps
