2 main_comments blocks (same page)

I will try my best to explain this  O_o

I have inserted 2 main_comments blocks on the same page and then wrapped them with tabs comcode tag
this all looks nice and the tabs work fine but I must be missing something with the advanced settings for the main_comments block.

If I'm not mistaken, you can have more than 1 main_comments block on one page as long as you specify an identifier for the comment box

Is this not correct?

You can see what I mean here :Click Bots-Help/Bugs - Tisnart Games

On the tabs I have two different  main_comments blocks (Help and Bugs)
so it looks like this:


[tabs="Help ,Bugs"][tab="Help " default="1"][block="12" page="Click Bots Help" forum="12" reviews="1"]main_comments[/block][/tab][tab="Bugs"][block="13" page="Click Bots Bugs" forum="13" reviews="1"]main_comments[/block][/tab][/tabs]

Here lies the problem….
If I make a comment on either block under a tab it always posts the same comment to both forms, however, the page title I set in the Advanced settings is correct.

So unless I don't understand something here and I did it correctly, when I make a post in one of the comment blocks it should only go to that certain form and not both.

I hope that all makes sense….
Am I doing something wrong?

That's not going to work I'm afraid, it'd be a lot of effort for us to allow multiple comment forms per screen.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
