How do you comment on Magazine articles?

Unread postby mad_ady » Wed Apr 11, 2018 11:43 pm

I may be an idiot, but I can't find how to log in to magazine.odroid.com and post a comment on one of the articles.
Also, a related question - how do you follow an article and get notifications about new comments?

Well there's a login link (at the end of a article just above the "Leave a Reply", but no register button :D
you can also just add an /login to the URL and come directly to to login site... but again.. no register :D
Donate to support my work on the ODROID GameStation Turbo Image for U2/U3 XU3/XU4 X2 X C1 as well as many other releases.
Check out the Games and Emulators section to find some of my work or check the files in my repository to find the software i build for ODROIDs.
If you want to add my repository to your image read my HOWTO integrate my repo into your image.

Yup, I've tried with the forum credentials, but no go. Although I seem to remember that there were comments on some older articles.

We turned off comments because of the massive amount of spam that we were getting, but I will look into re-enabling the comments and post back here when they are available again :)

See if you can authenticate via the forum and maybe allow posts from users with a minimum number of posts

Or, maybe in these foums itself,
. create a top level forum titled: ODROID Magazine
. and for each month's magazine, create a sub-forum.
Folks, can post questions, feedback, corrections, etc to individual posts as usual

The problem is tracking - article posters need to subscribe to those threads to be notified of new questions

I enabled commenting directly on the Wordpress site using Facebook and Google+ so that comments can reach beyond the *.odroid.com bubble.

If you prefer to use your forum handle, you can also comment on the main magazine announcement forum thread for each month (ex. viewtopic.php?f=7&t=30701&p=220955), making sure to enable the "Subscribe Topic" option at the bottom of the post to be notified of replies.
