Commenting app features that can be achieved with a small amount of technical work in Matrix:

  • Login with Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn
    Get a Matrix implementer to wrap the embed snippet with Matrix OAuth 2 authentication.
  • Hide and show the commenting box based on specific requirements
    Get a Matrix implementer to wrap app the embed snippet in any number of content rules e.g. only show the commenting box in one part of your site, or only on specific pages.
  • View the commenting box based on permissions
    Get a Matrix implementer to wrap the embed snippet in the logic needed to limit commenting accessibility to guests, registered users or both, or blocks user access by cookie, IP and username.

The Commenting app requires a special Matrix connector package to be installed (by Squiz Support at no charge!) prior to dropping your app snippets into your website. The connector package allows for Drop-in-apps Connector Assets to be created which handles authentication between Matrix logged in users and the apps platform.

Once Squiz Support has installed the connector package, please visit the Matrix manuals website to review how best to configure the Drop-in-apps Connector Asset and then install your apps.
