The best comments for Ghost
Here's why Cove Comments beats anything else.
Matches your site design
Cove uses your theme's existing styling and seamlessly slots into your site without looking out of place.
If you change your theme, Cove will change to match.
Unlimited comments and members
Unlike some commenting tools, there are absolutely no limits on how many comments or members you can having using Cove.
Build your community as big as you can.
Works with free and paid memberships
Cove Comments sits on top of Ghost's membership features and allows any signed-in member (free or paid, you choose) to leave comments on your content.
Moderate and control the conversation
With a single click, pin, hide and delete comments from your site.
And because every commenter is signed in as a Ghost member, spam is virtually non-existent.
Super simple customisation
With Cove's many settings you have many options, like choosing between three layout options, adding or removing comment likes and emoji reactions, and hiding comments from everyone but your premium paying members.
Translate Cove into any language
Translate the whole comment section to match the language of your site, in seconds.
Incredibly small and fast to load
Cove's comments script is under 6 KB and served on a worldwide CDN. It's tiny and incredibly quick to load, and it doesn't affect your page speed score.
For reference, Ghost's built-in comments scripts are just under 600 KB big.

** In Ghost, if a member can view the post, they can see the comments. In Cove you can choose if all free members can see comments or if only paid members can see comments, regardless of the post's access level.
*** In Ghost, if a member can view the post, they can leave a comment (if they can't, they can't). In Cove, viewing posts and leaving comments are fully de-coupled. For example, you can choose to allow paid members to leave comments but let all members and even non-members view comments.
