Request: the code to send to the API

Send an API request to this endpoint in order to remove an existing comment:

DELETE /loudvoice/comments/<comment_token>.json

The <comment_token> has to be replaced by the unique token of an existing comment. The following URL arguments are supported by this endpoint.

URL argument Description
* confirm_deletion
To prevent you from unintentionally deleting an entry by mixing up the DELETE/GET methods you must include this parameter and set it's value to true.
Per default child comments are not deleted but attached to the parent of the removed comment. Set this parameter to true to recursively remove the comment and all child comments.

Result: the code returned by the API

The API will either return a HTTP status code 200 if the entry was successfully deleted or an appropriate message body with further details on the error that occured.
