    Hello,

    Can you please explain the following settings, and what values we need to pass?

    “moderatorGroupIDorUserID”:[],
    “restrictWriteAccessToGroups”:[],

    Also, like we have the setting, authorCanEdit, is it possible to have something like authorCanDelete? So that authors are allowed to delete their own comments?

    Is there a setting available for “leave a comment” text area to be expanded by default?

    The icon “Toggle notification on new comments” is a bit hidden. Is it possible to bring it out of the line, “Leave a comment” and place it on the same line as “Number of comments”, perhaps align right?

    Thanks,
    Mukesh

    Some of these are in the installation guide with descriptions;
    http://spjsblog.com/commentbox-for-sharepoint/installation-manual/ under the section for ‘configuration options’

    The group/ID is the underlying sharepoint ID number from the user information list. Multiple can be added separated with commas.

    For text area expanded by default – try the ‘textareaVisible’ option

    Author to delete is a question for Alexander, but I can’t see how that would easily be achieved – if a parent comment is deleted then child comments would have no item to hang off. Personally I would stick to the default behaviour – authors can edit to remove all text, but any follow up replies would remain unaffected.
    I’ve not used commentbox-for-sharepoint for a while, but I think it’s also advisable to enable versioning on the list when enabling authorCanEdit so that any posted/removed comments can be audited (depending on your usage case).
