Show comments in the edit page mode?


I am using Confluence with the "Documentation" theme for a requirements specification. We provide feedback via comments. To implement the comments on a page, it is edited but during this time, the comments are not visible and hence it is difficult to implement all the comments.

The workaround is to copy the URL before editing and use in a new tab but it would be much nicer if while editing, the comments could be visible. And I believe this is a useful feature for others.

Anyone know if this is possible? I am using verison 3.3.1 currently.

Thank you all for your support.

In confluence/decorators/page.vmd, try copying this:

#decoratorParam("sitemeshPage" $sitemeshPage)
#decoratorParam("page" $page)
#decoratorParam("context" "comments")

below here:

#elseif ($mode == "edit" || $mode == "edit-preview")
You'll likely have to repeat this for each theme.

Thank you for your help. Unfortunately our admin got a system error. when she tried it out. Do you know whether this works with version 3.3.1? (I wanted to attach the screenshot of the erro but it seems not possibel with this forum)...
