Comment on Wiki Pages

[Printer Icon] Print this article

Course/Organization members can comment on wiki pages rather than contribute to or edit a page. Commenting provides a way for you and your students/participants to offer feedback and suggestions. Comments are visible to all course/organization members. All comments for all wiki pages are counted in the About This Wiki section in the sidebar.

No one can edit comments after they are posted. Users can delete the comments they authored.

For group wikis, the default setting allows all course/organization members to read them, but you must be a member of the group to make a comment. You can change the default setting to allow only group members to view a group wiki.

1. Access a wiki and click the page to view in the sidebar. The wiki page opens in the content frame.

2. Click Comment following the user’s contribution and type a comment. You can use the spell check function at the bottom of the box as needed.

Note: Comments have a 2,000-character limit. A pop-up message advises that a comment over 2,000 characters must be edited and resubmitted.

3. Click Add. Click the Comments link below the contribution to view the comment.
