You can leave a comment on any page or news item in Confluence.

To add a comment, you require 'Create Comments' permission which is assigned by a space administrator from the Space Administration screens. See Space permissions or contact a space administrator for more information.

You can either add a new comment or respond to a previous comment (only available in 'threaded' view).

Use Confluence markup or the Rich Text editor to write the comment.

    Type in your text and click 'Post' when you are done.

  • If your page is in 'Hide' comments view, look for the link to 'Add Comment' at the bottom of the page.
    Click on this link to open up the comments box. Type in your text and click 'Post'.
