Who can post and comment?

Both admins and group members can post and comment. Using the @ symbol and typing in a group member’s name will allow them to be tagged in the post which shows in both the “feed” and “notifications” tabs.

Links posted in CommunityAlly are based on your WordPress comment moderation settings. You’ll find these under Settings → Discussion → Comment Moderation.

CommunityAlly feed comments with links can be held if the poster adds more links than are set in this section.

How do I know who is posting and commenting?

Great question. Let’s look over the segments you’ll see in the “feed” tab.

  1. Group Member: the group member that “posted” clicking the group member’s name takes you to their “profile” page
  2. Group Name: the CommunityAlly group the member “posted” in. Clicking the group name takes you to the top of the group “feed”
  3. Post: where the group member post content is. If another member is @ tagged they clicking the @ takes you to member “profile” page
  4. Comment Count: The number of comments on this post in the feed. Clicking on comments opens up all comments with comment times.
  5. Comments: Where the comments are. If a member is @ tagged clicking takes you to the member “profile” page.
  6. Attachments (shown) or Images (not shown): If the post or comment contains an image or file it will appear in the post or comment section.
