This article will give you a short list of things you need to check when using Comments in your MV account.

The goal is to help you use Comments to better engage with your visitors, and give them a space to interact with each other.

In this checklist we'll review how to enable Comments in the places you want them, so you know what to expect when your visitors begin using them.

For additional resources on this topic, including a video tutorial of this exact list, please check the list of LINKS at the bottom of this article.

What To Do When Using Comments
