reverse order of comments

Propositum Creative Dec 14, 2014

Good day.

Normally when a page is commented upon, the latest comment or etc is posted at the bottom of the page. 

I am hoping to reverse that order ( unless there is a better workflow others use?)

We are designers, and post the main project item on the page ( I.E. Edit the page and post in there) and all updates to the page are added as comments. it is usually a bother to  scroll alllll the way down to the bottom to see the latest.. 


thoughts / comments?

Two thoughts...

1)  There's a javascript hack for it.  I tend to avoid javascript hacks in Atlassian stuff, but I think this one is ok.  See

2)  Wait for Confluence 5.7 - comments are changing, drastically.  My understanding is that they will be in the same order, but because they'll be in place on the page and not tacked on the bottom, which may make your sorting issues go away!

JIRA has a button to do this. Not sure why other apps wouldn't. Mind you JIRA doesn't have threaded comments. And I think it should!

Can someone tell me where exactly this script gets places in Confluence 5.4? I see the Edit Site Layouts section for the space, but it's not clear where the script goes.
