This module extends the comments module core functionality and adds the ability for a front-end user to flag a comment.

When a comment has been flagged, it cannot be flagged by anyone else.


  • silverstripe/comments ^3.1
  • silverstripe/framework ^4.0

Note: This branch is compatible with SilverStripe 4. For a SilverStripe 3 release, please see the 1.x release line.


composer require nzta/silverstripe-flagcomments


Assuming you've already added comments to your page as per instructions than all you need to do is enable flagging via config and add the flag to your template.

    - 'NZTA\FlagComments\Extensions\FlagCommentsExtension'
    can_flag: true

Adding the flag to your template:

The endpoint expects an ajax request and only responds with JSON. You'll have to handle this yourself, but to add the flag to your HTML you need to edit the template. There's no reason why you can't add this to another template (this is just a helping hand).

<% if $canFlag %>
	<a href="$FlagLink">Flag</a>
<% end_if %>
