#1964 closed improve feature (fixed)

Remove the comments section in groups

Reported by: crumbking Owned by: sitatara
Priority: minor Milestone: 2.1
Component: BW Group Keywords: groups, comments

Description (last modified by shevek)

Short way alternative: let's remove them and wait for reactions ;-) If they are bad revert the commit in a hotfix and do the long version ;-)

To get this smooth without to much noise following could work:

  • Hide the comments section and add a hide/unhide checkbox for group admins (explaining that in the long run we remove this)
  • wait 2 month and check DB for shown comment sections (enabled by group admins)
  • inform those groups we remove comment section
  • remove the comment section :-)

Fixed together with #1987: Group comments are now hidden by default. The group admin can make them visible in the group settings. When logged out, group comments are not shown.

To hide the group comments a new column called VisibleComments? was added to the table groups:

ALTER TABLE `groups` ADD `VisibleComments` ENUM( 'no', 'yes' ) CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_unicode_ci NOT NULL DEFAULT 'no' COMMENT 'If comments in groups are shown or not.' AFTER `VisiblePosts`
