Guide to Using Comment Mover with Flatcomments

Comment mover challenges

To new users, Comment Mover (CM) often seems to behave erratically. Grafted comments do not appear in their destination threads/topics where users expect. Work to improve usability of the module is underway, but CM’s current behavior is predictable and useful if you understand how it works.

A few key concepts

Given how Drupal forums work, how Flatcomments works and how Comment Mover works, a few concepts are important to understandig how to use these together.

Threading vs. threaded display

In Drupal forums, threading and threaded display are two different things. Threading occurs when comments are posted in reply to other comments. Threaded display occurs when the forum is configured to show replies to comments (children) below their parent comments (usually indented).

It is possible to set the forum display to flat and make all comments appear as though they are replies to the original post even though many of them are not. Threading may be occurring even though no threading is being displayed.

Since Drupal forum topics/threads may be threaded or flat, we will refer to them here as “forum topics” (or just “topics”) and the posts that begin them as “forum topic nodes” (or just “topic nodes”).

CIDs

Understanding and using Comment Mover

What Comment Mover does

The results of using Comment Mover make a lot more sense if you know what the module actually does behind the scenes. In reality, Comment Mover (CM) does not “move” topic posts and comments. It creates new comments (or nodes in the case of conversion/“promotion”) and moves the original data into them, placing redirect links where the data was in the original comments or nodes.

The following principle applies consistently:

Whenever you click Prune on comment or node, then click Graft at a destination comment or node, CM creates a comment with a new Comment ID (CID). Any comments that were children of the original comment or node become children of the new comment or node and retain their original CIDs.

Common CM Actions and Results

Action: Prune uncommented topic node, graft onto another topic node
Result: Node content transfers to a new comment, receives next available CID
The new comment takes its place in the destination thread according to its CID and your sort order

Action: Prune commented topic node, graft onto another topic node
Result: Node content transfers to a new comment, receives next available CID
Comments move with it (retain their CIDs) and become its children/replies
The new comment takes its place in the destination thread according to its CID and your sort order

Installing and configuring Advanced Forum - 6.x

Installing Advanced Forum

  1. Enable all dependencies: Author Pane 1.x, Forum, Taxonomy, Comment. (Optionally: Statistics)
  2. Copy the entire advanced_forum project directory (not just the contents) to your normal module directory (ie: sites/all/modules)
  3. Enable the advanced forum module at ?q=admin/build/modules

Configuring Advanced Forum

Visit the Advanced Forum settings page at ?q=admin/settings/advanced-forum

  1. Advanced forum style directory: Select the name of the style you are using from the dropdown of registered styles. See http://drupal.org/node/234042 for more information on this.
  2. Use graphical buttons for links: Included buttons with text are only in English. If your site isn't in English and you don't want to replace the buttons, uncheck this box and you will get translatable text links instead. Icons with no text are not affected by this setting.
  3. Image directory: The images used by the styles are assumed to be in an "images" subdirectory off the style. If you need to use images from another source, enter the complete path here.

Installing and configuring Advanced Forum - 5.x

Installing Advanced Forum

  1. Enable all dependencies: Author Pane, Forum, Taxonomy, Comment. (Optionally: Statistics)
  2. Copy the entire advanced_forum project directory (not just the contents) to your normal module directory (ie: sites/all/modules)
  3. Enable the advanced forum module at ?q=admin/build/modules
  4. In the module package is a directory called "styles" that contains the included styles, one per directory. Choose one of the styles to use and copy the entire directory (not just the contents) to the theme directory of the theme you are using on your site. If you use forums with more than one site theme, copy the style directory to each theme's directory. If you use subthemes, copy it to the subtheme's directory. You should end up with something like "sites/all/themes/SITETHEME/naked".
  5. If you are not using a theme with built in AF support (Zen, some Roople themes, possibly others) Add this code to the top of _phptemplate_variables in template.php in your theme and make sure you are returning $vars, not array() at the end of the function:
      if (module_exists('advanced_forum')) {
        $vars = advanced_forum_addvars($hook, $vars);
      }
