Configure and Manage Shopify Blog Comments

Blog comments are one of the best ways to keep your blog readers engaged. They help you to build trust, keep a dialogue with your audience and get ideas for your future blog posts. 

Unlike many other apps, which require additional Shopify blog comment apps to enable comments, our Blog App comes with three comment types out of the box. 

Today we'll discuss all of them so you can choose which type of Shopify blog comments to choose for your blog.

Shopify Blog Comment Types

Since blog comments are related to a blog post, you can configure them in the Post Page (Post View) section. For that go to Apps > Magefan Blog > Configuration > Post Page > Comments. Here you can disable blog comments or choose which type to use.
