How to enable Real-time Commenting

Real-time Commenting allows your audience members to see new comments as they stream into the page without having to refresh the page. This enables users to engage with each other around your most powerful stories in real-time. Enabling Real-time Commenting also keeps your audience engaged in active discussions and reading new comments as they stream in.

Please note: Real-time Commenting is currently only supported for stories that do not have pre-moderation enabled. Only admins can enable or disable this feature.

To enable Real-time Commenting navigate to > Settings > Commenting Tool > check Enable Real-time Commenting > Save Changes

Like all of our other plugins, real-time commenting can be customized to fit with your brand colors and styles through CSS. For further information on how to customize the CSS styling, please see our developer site at
