Introduction

The Comments 2.0 plugin provides the ability to start or join a conversation by adding comments to the content within the TinyMCE editor. The Comments 2.0 plugin is built upon the Annotations API and uses annotations to create comment threads (conversations).

Comments is a premium plugin from Tiny. Please see the Premium features section for all the buying options.

After obtaining the Comments 2.0 plugin, refer to the following instructions for using it.

Add the Comments 2.0 plugin

To add the Comments 2.0 plugin to the TinyMCE editor, use the following script:

tinymce.init({
  selector: '#tiny-ui .editor',
  plugins: 'paste tinycomments',
  tinycomments_mode: 'embedded',
  tinycomments_author: 'Author'
});

Modes

There are two modes available in Comments 2.0 that provide the ability to save comments. These modes are configured in the Comments 2.0 settings.

  • Callback Mode – This is the default mode in Comments. This mode is used to configure storage and save comments on user’s server. This option gives the user a choice to configure the storage settings to either persist comments immediately or save them at the same time as the content. Additional callbacks are required to be configured to use Comments in the callback mode. Refer to the configuring callbacks for comments section, for more information.

  • Embedded Mode – This mode allows the user to store the comments within the content. No additional callbacks are required to be configured to use this mode.

Configuring Comments 2.0 embedded mode

To configure Comments 2.0 to use the embedded mode use the following script:

tinymce.init({
  selector: "#textarea",
  tinycomments_author: 'Embedded Journalist',
  tinycomments_mode: 'embedded'
 ...
})

Configuring the Comments 2.0 addcomment toolbar button

The addcomment toolbar button provides the ability to add comments.

The Add comment toolbar button is available by default if the toolbar menu is not customized.

In case of a customized toolbar menu, use the following script to configure the Comments 2.0 toolbar button:

tinymce.init({
 selector: "#textarea",
 toolbar: 'bold italic underline insertfile | addcomment',
 ...
})

Result: The Comments **Comments** toolbar button appears in the toolbar menu. The function of this button is to add comments to the selected text.

Configuring the Comments 2.0 showcomments toolbar button

The showcomments toolbar button provides the ability to display comments field for the selected text. It is a toggle button and is used to hide the comments sidebar as well.

Use the following script to configure the Comments 2.0 toolbar button:

tinymce.init({
 selector: "#textarea",
 toolbar: 'bold italic underline insertfile | showcomments',
 ...
})

Result: The Comments **Comments** toolbar button appears in the toolbar menu. The function of this button is to show comments to for the selected text.

Configuring the Comments 2.0 menu item

By default, when Comments 2.0 is added to the plugin list, the default menus will have entries for addcomment (Insert Menu), showcomments (View Menu), and deleteallconversations (File Menu).

For more information on configuring menu items refer to the toolbar and menu sections.

Currently, there are three menu items available:

  • addcomment – Provides the ability to add comments. By default, this option can be accessed through Insert -> Add comment menu bar item.

  • showcomments– Provides the ability to display comments field for the selected text. It is a toggle button and is used to hide the comments as well. By default, this option can be accessed through View -> Show comment menu bar item.

  • deleteallconversations– Provides the ability to delete all the comments in the content. By default, this option can be accessed through File -> Delete all conversations menu bar item.

Configuring the commented text properties

The highlight styles are now a part of the overall content skin and are changed through customizing the skin.

TinyMCE open source project oxide (default skin), defines the variables used for changing the annotation colours.

Refer to the documentation for building a skin using this repo.

For more information on configuring TinyMCE formats, refer to the formats section.

Using Comments 2.0 embedded mode with the Full Page plugin

Users have to be cautious when deciding the order in which the plugins are added in the plugins list.

Comments can cause an issue if the Full Page plugin fullpage appears before Comments 2.0 plugin tinycomments in the plugin list, and tinycomments is configured to use embedded mode.

The order that the plugins appear affects the order that the getContent hooks are processed in. This creates an issue with tinycomments working as expected since the fullpage plugin adds outer <html> elements before tinycomments adds its comment data. This leads to the comment data being in the wrong place. The consequence of this situation is that when a saved document is re-opened, the comment data is lost (but the highlights are still there).

For a workaround, please ensure that tinycomments is listed before fullpage in the plugins list. This should result in tinycomments working properly.
