We have been trying to make many of the core components within Active Social as reusable as possible. This makes adding new features easier and keeps the overall package small. Evidently I have been doing a better job of this than I realized.
We have made several improvements within the Events area for the Active Social 1.3 release. One more feature I wanted to add was the option for you to leave comments on events. I thought this would be a good time to also extend the comments control so that it could be used in other areas as well. First thing I did was add the comments control to the EventsView template. All I had to do was specify one parameter with a token on the control and Events instantly had a comments section.
Obviously, I'm a little embarrassed that I didn't realize this from the start. The good news is that Active Social has the ability for you to use the comments feature anywhere on your site. I've made a few minor changes for the 1.3 release so that you can specify something other than an Active Social token paramenter. Once that is released, you should be able to place the control in a custom view then add it to any page as a module.
Leave a comment and let me know if this will be useful to you or not.
