Can you Delete the Comment Section on Certain Pages?

In my public space I want to delete the comment section all together. Not just an individual comment but the whole block/section. Is this possible?

Hi there,

You could do this in two method depending on how many pages do you want to hide the comment section are. If you want the whole space to hide the comment section on that space's pages then you could do the following steps

  1. Navigate to the preferred space
  2. Browse >> Space Admin
  3. Click Stylesheet on the left hand panel under the heading "Look & Feel"
  4. Click Edit and Paste the following CSS
  5. <style>
    #comments-section
    {
    display:none;
    }
    </style>
  6. Save
  7. Confluence will hide the comment section to all content under the space

If you want Confluence to hide the comment section only for a particular page, you could do the following steps

  1. Access your administration page
  2. Navigate to "User Macros" under the "Configuration" section
  3. Create a User Macro
  4. Configure the Macro Name and Title (Example: hide)
  5. Choose "No Macro Body" as the definition of the macro
  6. Under the template input the following lines
    <style>
    #comments-section
    {
    display:none;
    }
    </style>
  7. Save
  8. Go to the page necessary
  9. Put the newly created macro at the page that you want the comment section to be hidden

Hope it helps.

Can't seem to get either to work

In the first set of instructions my stylesheet under "Look & Feel" is PDF Stylesheet and I put in there and nothing happened.

As for the second set of instructions it worked and will be good enough for what I am doing, but the section area is still seen it just has nothing in it. It would be nice if I could remove that alltogether.

Yup, basically the CSS could only hide it instead of removing the section. In regards to the stylesheet, please input it under the Space's stylesheet instead of PDF stylesheet.

Hope it helps.

David had a AJS javascript for manipulating the comment order, and you can tweak it and get rid of comments. Here is the link https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/28999/is-it-possible-to-reverse-the-order-in-which-comments-appear

You will need to stuff this into the space template I assume to make it specific only for one space.

Whats the tweak? I want to remove that whole comment section...So that no one would ever know it existed. I plan on creating another section and embed Disqus in it.

On just one page, or with in a whole space(multiple pages with multiple comments)?

Primarily the whole space. But individual pages would be helpful.

Thanks Septa, this is great!
