Hello ExpressionEngine gurus!

Could someone please show me how to add comments to an ExpressionEngine 2-based site from its control panel, being logged in as a Super Admin (as opposed to entering comments using the front end comment submission form)?

Would be grateful for your help!

You can't add comments from the control panel, to the best of my knowledge. You can manage comments— delete or edit, but I believe creating comments is purely a front end experience, unless you're talking about commenting code in the templates.

Comments are a 'user-based experience' item. Managing comments is a 'super-admin' experience. This can be done via the edit entries view or from clicking the recent comments link on the home screen of the control panel.

  • Would be a very nice feature though. I just happened to need this function as well. 2018 EE5. Commented Dec 31, 2018 at 2:02
