    I am working with Sitefinity 3.7 and I am having some problems implementing comments on the news items.  I had successfully achieved this before.  What does it take to get comments on 3.7.

    Hello Chris Morrow,

    How do you implement comments for the news items? Or you are just trying to enable them? To set the module to use comments you have to set

    allowComments="True" in the NewsView provider coniguration.

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

    the NewsView control also have Comments section under Advanced tab, so you can enable the comments from there as well.

    All the best,
