Using the Comments Package
Once qlue Comments has been installed, to get started, you should navigate to the module (Extensions->modules, then search for comments). In the module settings you can configure the behaviour of the module. Following the step below should be all that's needed to get comments working, but a detailed list of the configuration options can be found under the configuration tab.
In order for the module to display you should make sure that a Position has been selected on the right hand side, the module has been set to published, also on the right hand side, and you have selected pages in the Menu Assignment tab.
Recaptcha from google allows you to prevent automated bots from voting on your polls. To enable Recaptcha please follow this guide. First navigate to https://www.google.com/u/3/recaptcha/admin/create, you will need a Google account. For Recaptcha type select reCAPTCHAv3. Then type in the domain name of your website, accept the terms of service and hit the submit button. You will now be given two keys. In Joomla, go to the qlue Comments component. On the right side, click the options button. Lastly, paste in your keys and hit save.
Our modules are equipped with conditional fields meaning you only see the fields relevant to the options you have selected. So don't worry if you cant see some of the options listed bellow.
The Style tab contains most of the settings for customising the display of the module. Colours are selected with a colour picker or entered in the #ffffff format. Dimensions and sizes are entered in px or % (i.e. 12px, 10%). px is short for pixels, this defines a static size. % is percentage which defines a dynamic, relative, size.
