This is the homepage for the discussion mediawiki extension. It is a commenting system that looks like this (please feel free to test it):


You need JavaScript enabled for viewing comments


Features

  • Moderation: the moderator can block, hide or completely remove comments; restrict viewing and posting permissions (e.g. to registered users only)
  • Customization: there is a number of adjustable parameters (maximum depth of comments, "sliding" view instead of "incremental" view, etc)
  • Special page for recent comments
  • Special page for the summary of all discussions on the wiki
  • Supported languages: English, Chinese, Russian, German, Spanish and French (the last one is almost complete). Please help by translating it to other languages!

Usage

To use it, simply add the following wiki text to a page:

<discussion />

You can also specify various parameters, e.g.

<discussion>
  characters_max=0
  incremental=0
</discussion>

will remove restriction on the number of characters in a comment, and will display Previous/Next buttons instead of More. Here is a complete list of parameters.
