How do I disable page and inline comments in a space, but enable inline comments on some pages?

Is there a way to disable page and inline comments globally within a space, but enable inline comments on one of the pages and any child page under that parent page?

We've created a space that acts more like a knowledge base than a wiki, so we've disabled page and inline comments globally. However, we would like to enable comments on pages that are being drafted. These pages are being drafted under a parent page within the space. For collaboration, we would like to re-enable inline comments on these pages. Is there a way to do that?

Hi @sarah.rev,

You could achieve this by using our app HideElements for Confluence. In the HideElements space settings you could hide the comments section and the inline comments menu for all pages in your space. (Apply the "red eye" to these elements to hide them and make sure that the "lock" is set to open so it can be overwritten on a page level)

And then on pages where you want to enable them again, you insert the HideElements macro, and apply the "green eye" to these elements to make them visible again only on that page. This is what the HideElements menu looks like:

Hope this helps! If you have any questions, let me know. :)

Cheers,
Sven
