This version is about new features requested by members of XF community.

- Disallow comments in a forum

By default FCS will allow comments in all forums of a website.
Now you can disallow posting comments for any forum you want on your website and for any user group.

Navigate to Forums -> Node Permissions (select any forum) -> Select a user group (for example Registered) and you disallow for this group in that forum to post comments.

- Preserving the comments data after uninstall

Under a normal condition, when this add-on is uninstalled, all the data created by the FCS add-on will be removed, including the data in the comments.

However from this version on, you will have an option to preserve the data by ticking the checkbox "Don't remove comments data" when the uninstall window pops up.

The data preservation is done such way that a comment will be converted into a reply with a quote of the reply under which the comment was posted.

Here is an example. This is a reply with comments before uninstalling that FCS add-on:

This is the same reply and converted comments after uninstall:

This is just a minor update.
An issue with "History" link in the comment (History permission in the comment was dependent on a wrong permission ) fixed.

A new feature added:
- Time limit on editing/deleting own comments
Please note that this permission works with the combination of permission "Edit own post/comment". If someone has the permission of editing any comment/post then this permission will not take effect.

The design of the comment has been adjusted for this version to look more organized:



- enhanced comments deleting
Now you can use the same functions for deleting comments as for regular replies.
You can now remove the comment from public view, permanently delete it and also notify the author.


Deleted comment with "Remove from public view" visile for Admin:


- enhanced comment editing
You have now the option to edit the comment the same way as a regular reply with a "History" link too:


After editing a comment also the "History" button will appear with the same functionality as for a regular reply:


Edited comment:


- New permissions added

And that is Edit Comment Silent, Hard Delete Comment, View Deleted Comment.


- Enhanced notifications
In addition to email notifications, alert popup window, What's new, New posts, Latest activity notifications now added also notification in Forums Main category.

Normally when a reply is posted, the thread links in the forum are bold informing you that those threads contain unread posts. So now the same for comments. When a comment is posted in watched thread, the tread link will bump to the top and become bold informing you that you have an unread post. And clicking the bold link will bring you straight to the comment.


- added a new post indicator for comments
Regular feature for a reply now added also for a comment:


- small branding adjustments and a directory change.
