    I set up a news page with a News View and turn on the AllowComments under the advance tab.  How do I edit or delete comments for an article.  I do not see a section in the News Module for this like the Blog module. 

    Thanks,
    David

    Hello David,

    In your web.config enable comments moderation as the example below illustrates.

            <cmsEngine defaultProvider="Generic_Content"
                <providers> 
                    <clear/> 
                    <add name="News" urlRewriteFormat="[Publication_Date]/[Title].aspx" urlDateTimeFormat="yy-MM-dd" urlWhitespaceChar="_" visible="False" defaultMetaField="Title" securityProviderName="" allowVersioning="True" applicationName="/News" versioningProviderName="" allowComments="true" commentsModeration="true" connectionStringName="GenericContentConnection" type="Telerik.News.Data.DefaultNewsProvider, Telerik.News.Data"/> 

    Let us know if there is anything else that we can do for you.

    How can we see the topics that need moderation? :) Is there a dashboard that lets you see the latest comments?

    Hi Armysniper,

    Once you enable the settings below there should appear a new view in the backend called "Comments" from where you can delete or moderate each IComment object.

    Hello Armysniper,

    Since you have to edit  a provider configuration it is logically that it will show for the provider you are editing.

    Best wishes,

    Its not about logic. I was hoping it would show up as a dash board for easy finding of the comments. I do not see it in my dashboard where I would expect to find all comments I am expected to moderate so I do not have to hunt for it.
