Disabling Comments in a Space or on a Page

I am currently on the free edition of Confluence Cloud giving this thing a whirl.  I am curious about how to disable the comments in a space.  Example, if I am making a space (documentation) for listing out device IP addresses and such, there is no need for comments.  I just need a page with a simple table that contains the data that I can share with others.  Can I disable comments for pages, or for an entire space even?  Please advise.

Thank you!

Hi @Kevin Parenteau ,

Welcome to the community.

Add/Delete comments can be managed by space admins in space settings --> Space Permissions. But, as you are in confluence free plan,  you can't change the space permissions.


Thank you for your reply!  So while those are permissions for access, I'm curious if there is a way to just not show the comments on pages, not necessarily disable or prevent access, etc., but more from a display and appearance perspective.


@Kevin Parenteau ,

Could not find any solution for this. HTML macro is also disabled in confluence cloud. 

I could see one suggestion request with the same requirement. 

Sounds good.  Thank you for the help!  I think the standard edition might be the way to go to have access to the permissions.
