An introduction to comments in Drupal 7

By default, comments are allowed in Drupal 7. Users must first be registered and logged in, however, before they can post comments.

 

How do users leave comments?

Once a user is logged in, at the bottom of pages that allow comments will be a comment form. Users can type in a subject and comment, choose a text filter type, and then click submit.

How do users reply to comments?

Under each comment is a link that says reply. Clicking the reply link will load a new page and allow users to respond to a specific comment. As you can see in the screenshots below, a reply comment shows under the original comment and is indented slightly.
