Which would be the best way to add comment functionallity on CMS page types? I have found so many different answers i don't really know which to use. I can't get a grip on the CommentHandler-class and how to reference a Entity for a page...
You need an entity corresponding to the page. Previously there was the open source PageEntity, and now Relate 2 R2 seems to have it (or something similar) built-in, see "Social Pages" in this article: http://world.episerver.com/Articles/Items/EPiServer-Relate-2-R2/
Have you looked at this yet Jonas?
I looked at the Pageentity-project, the code i found seemed te only support the Wiki and not CMS-Pages. Maybe i didn't look hard enought :). Creating an Entity sounds like the best way... building a comment system in CMS isn't that hard, but i want to use Relate+.
Does anybody know of a good article describing how to implement PageEntity with CMS pages?
I'm not sure if things are going forward or backwards for me right now, but i'm sure struggling.... I created a PageEntity called CMSPageEntity and tried to add a Tag to it using this code:
CMSPageEntity x = (CMSPageEntity)new CMSPageEntity(CurrentPage.PageGuid).Clone();UserAuthor user = new UserAuthor(CommunitySystem.CurrentContext.DefaultSecurity.CurrentUser);Tag tag = new Tag("Testtagg");ICategory cat = new Category("testcat");x.EntityTags.Add(new EntityTag(tag, cat, user));PageEntityHandler.UpdatePageEntity(x);
It results in this exception, what do i miss here?
You have to use PageEntityHandler.AddPageEntity when you're creating a new entity.
Ok, so finally i got this to work. First i created a custom PageEntity, constructed som logic to handle the creation (or use) of it and som other basic stuff. The creation of comments works fine, but now i struggle getting the comments instead... i need to get all comments for a specific PageEntity, so i have two options: GetComments or GetQueryResult. GetComments should be the way, but it takes an IAuthor as parameter. I don't want to filter by author, is there a way to do this? GetQueryResult is more flexibel, but i cannot find any parameter to filter by "Commented Entity"...
Passing null for author should get you all comments regardless of author.
