Inline comments feature is enabled by default

Description

The "inline comment" feature, first released in MultiExcerpt 5.5.0 is enabled by default:

It should be disabled by default because it renders information that was not previously rendered in the include. Site admins may not want to enable the ability for MultiExcerpt Include macros (AND Confluence Include Excerpt macros) to render inline comments that were made on the original excerpt. We don't want a site admin to upgrade to 5.5.0 and have their site start rendering inline comments in includes without being sure the admin wants that to happen.

Users who view the include must have view permissions on the page with the excerpt so this is not exposing info that they could not navigate to on their own.

SOLUTION:

  • disable this feature by default

  • add to the description in the "?" widget for enabling this feature to explain that enabling this feature will allow the MultiExcerpt Include AND Confluence's Excerpt Include to display inline comments made in an excerpt.
    AS IS: Allow inline comments on text that is in a multiexcerpt to be rendered as inline comments in multiexcerpt includes that include the multiexcerpt
    COULD BE: Allow inline comments on text that is in multiexcerpts (AND Confluence excerpts) to be rendered as inline comments in multiexcerpt includes that include the multiexcerpt (AND in Confluence include excerpts that include the Confluence excerpt)
