How do I add to the comments URL field?

Hello Community,

Unfortunately I miss the field for your own website in the comments on my e107-Theme under http://e107v1.wpzweinull.ch .

It would be nice if my readers had a URL field when commenting.

How can I add it manually. I have here a template for comments, which looks like this.

Problem with url is related to news data. In new version there is sef-url field, you have it empty - my quess. You can add it manually by editing news and generate sef-url or you can go to.preferencies. then url configuration. Set your news urls. And regenerate or something like this. Or your news categories are without sef-urls. And excuse me, on mobile now.

Thanks, but we misunderstood here :) I wanted to actually realize how my readers can comment on the portal with URL+Name. Say you can link your own website in the comment-sector.

Has e107 this function by default or what do I have to adjust or where?

Thank you. Do you know what I mean?

Alex L,

If I understand you correctly, you want to your commentors have a text field to enter their website URL like in WP while submiting the comment using the e107 comment form, right? Unfortunately As far as I know this is not possible natively in e107.

But the users can have their website URL in their user profile if you have enabled that in the admin or the user can simply post the link in the 'comment text' field itself.

I agree with skepticHominid, this functionality is not supported out of the box but can be done through a plugin. It can hook into the 'comments engine' functionality, allowing the plugin author to define the fields that should be displayed.

OK, Thanks! 

Then I am now well informed. Yes, you had understood me correctly :)

But well, then I'll work with e107. Nevertheless, I am very satisfied with this OpenSource CMS.
