Comments in RapidWeaver

It's simple to add comments to a RapidWeaver page, there are stacks, widgets and code available for Disqus, Facebook and GooglePlus etc., but those of you that are concerned about GDPR compliance might like to look at the new Comments Stack from Stacks4Stacks.

Will Woodgate's new Comments stack is 100% GDPR compliant, it doesn't collect any personal data and a user can't post a comment until she/he has confirmed their awareness that the comment will be displayed publicly.

Comments doesn't require any server side setup, simply a single line of PHP in your page's Prefix. On-page setup is simple, but that doesn't mean to say that you can't spend time pondering the correct translation to localise field names and error messages, adding custom icons to your rating system, or adding a ist of objectionable words so that you don't have to ban Steve C from your site. And I haven't even mentioned the colour setup yet…
Spammers? No. A maths question is generated for each new comment. The question may be set to simple by choosing a range e.g. between 1 and ten, or complicated by setting a range between 100 and ∞.

Disadvantages? Yes, of course there are disadvantages to not collecting personal data, or using a system such as Disqus…
… your comments are saved to a flat text file in your page's subdirectory. If you wish to reply to the comment, you either need to compose a new post, or open the .txt file with a text editor and add your reply there.
And – due to the fact that you're not asking users to supply a mail address, they can't be notified when you write a reply.
