For the sake of 7.1 and the stories related with Lexicon for sites. The Comments component needs to provide flexibility about its settings. This story and LPS-78256 have been created to allow admin users to choose how they want the nesting feature activated on comments and the maximum number of nested replies allowed.
A user should be able to:
- Set the maximum levels of nesting
Add a new section "Comments" within System Settings > Community Tools > System Scope
Add a description text of the screen: "The changes here will affect the following list of applications and widgets: Blogs, Pages, Document Library, Wiki, Calendar, Workflow and Asset Publisher."
Add a drop-down with the label "Nested Replies" with the following options:
- 1 (is selected by default)
Add a description text for Replies field: "If a user is replying to another user's reply, it will appear nested. Set the maximum number of levels deep. "
Currently, system settings auto-generate the settings for each screen within. This story needs to be reviewed because it's not following the patterns and good practices we want for a form in DXP. The user and system management team have plans to generate more elaborate and complex forms. Once this has been done we will apply a different design and interaction patterns.
Please follow the design created in Invision
