The InlineComments extension adds the ability for viewers to add inline comments to a page. This is designed to be somewhat similar to how office products like Google docs do comments.

Usage edit

To attach a comment to specific text, follow these steps:

  1. Highlight the text you want to attach the comment to.
  2. A popup will appear with an "Add a comment" button. Click on it or use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Alt+m to add a new comment.
  3. Enter your comment in the popup form and save the changes.
  4. When you visit the page again, you will see the comment displayed in a designated area next to the right edge of the page.
  5. If you want to reply to someone's comment, click on the "Reply" button.
  6. Once all the issues have been discussed and resolved, mark the thread as "resolved." This action will delete the thread.
