Enabling Threaded Comments

Comments on pages or blog posts are displayed in one of two views:

  • Threaded: Shows the comments in a hierarchy of responses. Each reply to a comment is indented to indicate the relationships between the comments.
  • Flat: Displays all the comments in one single list and does not indicate the relationships between comments.

By default, comments are displayed in threaded mode. A Confluence Administrator (see Global Permissions Overview) can enable or disable the threaded view for the entire Confluence site.

To enable or disable the threaded view:

  1. Choose the cog icon , then choose General Configuration under Confluence Administration.
  2. Select Further Configuration in the left-hand panel.
  3. Choose Edit.
  4. Select the Threaded Comments checkbox to enable threaded mode. Deselect the check box to disable threaded mode and display all comments in flat mode.
  5. Choose Save.
