Comment on a page

Printable instructions here [PDF | 90KB]

Almost every page on CAF includes the option for viewers of that page to leave comments. As with the other contributions to CAF, you need to be registered and logged in, in order to leave a comment. There are several ways comment on a page:

1. if the comment field isn't shown at the bottom of the page, below the text 'Add a comment to this page:', click on the Add comment or Display comments link after the text 'There are ... comments on this page'
'Add Commment' and 'Display comments'
2. if the comment field is shown, write the comment in the comment field; and note that the markup used to edit pages (which you will have seen if you have edited any pages) doesn't apply here. However, blank lines automatically result in (visual) paragraphs
comment field
3. click on Add Comment
'Add Comment
The comment is automatically "signed" with either a registered user name or (for an anonymous user) origin node name or IP address, and a timestamp.

If there is neither a field for comments, nor an [Add comment] or [Display comments] link, like for example on RecentChanges, this can have two causes:

1. the action nocomments is in the code of the page

2. the owner of the page doesn't allow comments

Comments can be disabled through any page, and other access settings can also be changed. The Access Control section explains how this is done.
