This module is a port to Backdrop of the Drupal contributed module 'Commentsblock'.
It puts the comments and the comment form from a module into a block which can then be placed
in a different location within a layout.

There are options to suppress display of the 'add new comment' button from within the node, and
also to stop comments being shown to users who are not able to comment themselves.


This port to Backdrop is ready for installation and testing but is not yet proven reliable.


Install this module in the usual way.
It will add its admin page 'Comments block' to the configuration menu under 'User interface'.
Choose whether you want just the comments form to appear, or the comments as well.

In the relevant layout add the new 'Comment form block' to wherever you want it to appear
and set the conditions so that it only appears on required nodes.

Finally, edit your node settings so that 'Comment settings' is 'open'.

This port to Backdrop would not, of course, be possible without all the work done by the developers
and maintainers of the Drupal module.
