Comments on pages or blog posts are displayed in one of two views:

  • Threaded: Shows the comments in a hierarchy of responses. Each reply to a comment is indented to indicate the relationships between the comments.
  • Flat: Displays all the comments in one single list and does not indicate the relationships between comments.

By default, comments are displayed in threaded mode. A Confluence Administrator (see Global Permissions Overview) can enable or disable the threaded view for the entire Confluence site.

To enable or disable the threaded view:

  1. Click (Settings) in the Confluence navigation
  2. Select Further Configuration in the left-hand panel
  3. Choose Edit
  4. Select or unselect the Threaded Comments checkbox to enable or disable threaded mode
  5. Choose Save
