Is there a setting to hide the url / link field in the comment form below an article. This fields is a trigger for spammers to post loads of comments on your site.

Additionally: is there a way to get notified when someone posts a comment. I've set comments to needs to be published by the admin. But I need to know if there are legitimate comments that need to be published.
Also: can an author be informed if there's a comment and can a user be informed if there's a reply. Engagement will work the best if users and authors know there are responses. Otherwise it will just stay with the one comment…

Replying...

a) No, but you can override K2 templates (item.php in particular) and simply hide/remove the related display field. Keep in mind it's not really needed though as rel="nofollow" is always enforced by default for these links.

b) There was K2 Notify and we'll be reviving it soon. Other plugins exist as well - check the K2 Extensions Directory at: getk2.org/extend

c) See (b).

Alternatively switch to Disqus or Facebook comments. Again, there are many extensions that allow you to do this integration with K2 (even our own SocialConnect).


If you use & love K2, please take a moment to add your review and rate it
at the Joomla Extensions Directory: extensions.joomla.org/extension/k2/
