Comments on Forum topics

When a user posts a new forum topic, it appears as an entry in the main activity feed on all members page. When someone comments on that activity feed item, it doesn't go into the forum area as a response. So the forum topic looks abandoned because people have just commented on it on the activity feed. Any way to disable commenting on forum posts on the activity feed? Thanks Dan

    You should modify the database via phpMyadmin - look for the action types table. SE should really need to improve the backend options.

      I found the table:
      engine4_activity_actiontypes
      and edited the records:
      forum_topic_create and forum_topic_reply
      then changed "commentable" to 0

    Go to http://your_domain/admin/activity/settings/types/type/forum_topic_create and disable it.

      Thanks, but I don't see how to disable commenting.
