Enable reply to notification email for new pages and page edits

The ability to add comments to a page by replying to an email notification about a comment is always available from your ThoughtFarmer intranet. Admins can also enable the ability to add comments from email notifications that are about new pages or page edits. When enabling this feature, admins choose which page types this feature will be available on, and add a list of page types to the config setting incomingMail.comment.pageTypes.

The page types that can be entered in to this config setting's value are: Page, Section, Calendar, PhotoGallery, NewsBlog, Forum, Group, Post, CalendarEvent, Document, ForumTopic, MicroBlogEntry, ShoutOut.

If comments are not allowed on a page and a user tries to reply email to add a comment, they will receive an email saying the reply email cannot be delivered.

To enable adding comments from notification emails about new pages or page edits:

  1. Go to the Admin panelAdvanced section > Configuration settings page.
  2. Type comment in the Search config settings field to narrow the config settings results.
  3. Find the config setting incomingMail.comment.pageTypes.
  4. Click in the Value column beside the config setting. Enter a comma-separated list of page types that will allow users to add comments by replying to notification emails.
  5. Click Save.
