    Is there a way to enable Comments on an individual product's page?

    Hi,

    Sorry but Sitefinity "Comments" are not available for Ecommerce products.  The Ecommerce CatalogManager implements a different interface from the manager classes used by "content" such as news and blogs that do implement commenting.

    Rating and reviews (which would include the concept of "comments") is already in the list of additional functionality being considered for the Ecommerce module but currently there is no timeline for when this feature will be available.

    I have added your suggestion as a feature request.  You can track and vote for this at:

    http://www.telerik.com/support/pits.aspx#/public/sitefinity/14067

    In the mean time you might want to look at a third party tools such as Disqus:

    http://www.disqus.com/

    The Sitefinity marketplace contains a control that already has Disqus integrated into it:

    (see Release notes: 5.2.3700.0)


    Kind regards,

    Thanks Courtney.  I ended up implementing a custom widget.  Didn't take as long as I had thought it would.
