Can I edit the comments added to a News Story on the front end site?

Note: As of July 9, 2018, Blackbaud's School Management solutions (which include Core, onBoard, onCampus, onMessage, and onRecord) are utilizing a new top level navigation. This primarily affects users performing administrative tasks-constituent navigation for most parents, students, faculty, and alumni will remain the same.  
We appreciate your patience as we work to update our documentation. If you are seeing this message, the content of this solution is still being vetted for possible updates. Please refer to this mapping document if you need assistance finding a task in the new navigation.


We have a News category that allows users to leave comments on it. This story has been posted on our public front end site. Some of the comments have spelling or grammatical errors that I would like to correct. Can this be done if the comments are not set to require approval?
Even though the comments do not require approval, they can still be edited in the approval screen. Since approval isn't required, the comment automatically gets the status of "Approved". Changing the filter in the approval screen will allow you to view and edit comments whether they need approval or not.

Steps to Duplicate

  1. Navigate to onMessage
  2. Under the Approval menu select News
  3. Use the filters to search for the News Category and Date Range
  4. Mark the Status as Approved
  5. Click View
