Getting started with the Comments plugin - Selecting a mode

The Comments plugin is available in two modes: Callback mode and Embedded mode.

Callback Mode
This is the default mode for the Comments plugin. This mode is used to store the comments outside the content on a server, such as a database. This mode requires a number of callback functions to handle comment data.
For instructions on configuring the Comments plugin in callback mode, see: Configuring the Comments plugin in callback mode
Embedded Mode
This mode stores the comments within the content. No callbacks need to be configured for this mode.
