MultiExcerpt - Server/Data Center - 5.5.1

MultiExcerpt version 5.5.1 introduces new features related to the viewing of inline comments:

 

Inline Comments

Disable Inline Comment Viewing for Anonymous Users

At the time of this release, Confluence has no way for admins (or anyone else) to use permissions to disable viewing of comments for anonymous users on pages that the anonymous users are allowed to view.

Now your site admin has the power to hide inline comments from anonymous users using the MultiExcerpt Admin tool:

Users Can Toggle Inline Comment Visibility on a Page

MultiExcerpt now adds an item to the page menu that allows users to show/hide inline comments for that page (only for that user). This setting is persisted and is used for subsequent page visits by that user until they change it.

Enable Inline Comment Viewing in Excerpted/Included Content

Allows your site admin to enable/disable the viewing of inline comments in MultiExcerpt Includes, where the comments have been made in the body of a MultiExcerpt on some other page that contains the MultiExcerpt that is included by the MultiExcerpt Include.

That’s a long way to say, “You can now view inline comments on included content!”

This feature works on both the MultiExcerpt Include macro and on Confluence’s “out of the box” Excerpt Include macro.

Specify Custom Colors for Included Inline Comments

Allows your site admin to specify custom colors for inline comments that are rendered in an include. They can specify both a color for an inline comment when it is not selected and when it is selected (via the user, using their mouse).

This feature works on both the MultiExcerpt Include macro and on Confluence’s “out of the box” Excerpt Include macro.
