- Sections using a RSS feed, Youtube or Flickr source can't have the comments activated even if the box is ticked, uncheck the box in your back office so your users don't get confused.
- Wordpress.com, Blogger,  and 500px sources allow only to read existing comments, not to post new comments from your app.
