Comments / Replies many levels deep

I was able to create a reply to a comment, but what if the conversation continues?

Do I have to create a new collection for each level down of replies? Or can I set it up more like instant messaging?

Any tips is appreciated.

That video wasn’t for replies many levels deep. It was for one comment. Can anyone help me with some tips?

Hello, you can create a relationship between the replies and the comments collections which will be (Each Comment can have many replies), then you can add a list of replies under the comment or in a specific screen where you can connect it to the current comment by selecting (Current comment=> replies).

Thank you!

only 1 replies collection needed, you can add a column as “Parent_ID” which will store the ID of the reply parent’s replay ID

under the comment, create a list of replies and filter on Parent_ID = Empty … this will be the replies root list

and as a nested list inside, create another list of replies where the “Parent_ID” = Current reply ID
and so on …

you can repeat that multiple times to get multiple levels, BUT … there is a bug with nested lists in Adalo, as I remember after 3 level of nested lists, Adalo can load only 10 items !!!


Got it. Thanks!

Sorry for the late reply!

Oh… ok, got it! @mohmdfawzi already answered!
