Enable or Customize Discussions in a Stream

A Discussion post is a reply to a comment or post. ScribbleLive Engage allows you to customize your discussion commenting options, allowing you greater control over the content posted to your stream by your engaged audience. There are several ways to customize discussions on your stream.

Turn Discussion Comments ON or OFF

  1. From within your stream, click Setup > Stream on the left-rail stream menu to go to your stream’s Basic Setup page.
  2. Scroll down to the Discussion panel.
  3. Click the toggle button to turn Discussion On or Off.
  4. Click Save Changes at the bottom of the Basic Setup page to save your settings.

Notes:

  • Discussion comments are limited to 500 characters.
  • Any discussion posts in your stream will be hidden if you turn Discussion off. These posts will reappear if you turn Discussion on again. 

 

On the back-end, discussion comments include a "Show related post" reference to the original post, giving moderators context for approval. For HTML posts we include a link to the post permalink so it can be previewed.
