Comment added

Add comments to wiki pages


The AddCommentMacro allows for easy addition of comments to a page, in a standard format. Each comment added is in the following form:

==== Comment by <user> on <date> ====

The comment body supports normal TracWiki WikiFormatting.

Comments are added after the first line that starts with [[AddComment]].

The AddCommentMacro supports previewing and adheres to the TracPermissions scheme, only allowing comments to be added if the user has write access to the page.

Since [21] the AddCommentMacro can fulfill the role of an append only Wiki page. By passing the argument appendonly to the macro, comments can be appended to the page even when the user does not have permission to modify the page. Potentially unsafe, but can be useful.

Does this work with the current trunk? Is there any further documentation? Testing this on my SandBox page, when I clicked Add Comment, it took me to WikiStart#commentpreview.

See for an updated version - I wish I've been able to add it on this site, but I do not have a login here, and the escape sequence are in trouble inside the AddComment macro ;-)

Comment by athomas on Wed 18 May 2005 01:56:58 EST

Thanks for the new version, I'll add it with a note that is for trunk.

You could have logged a ticket though, this being Trac ;)

The recent update in Trac engine 1701 enforces security checks with POST HTTP method.

A dirty workaround is to edit the macro, replace "method='post'" with "method='get'", around line 81.

I think that the [[AddMacro]] should be embedded in the official trac macro store.

I had a look at trunk but I think I'll stick with coding against 0.8.x as trunk is a bit too much pain to keep track of.

Comment by alexkw@… on Fri 17 Jun 2005 13:40:55 EST

After installing AddComment to 0.8.3 and adding the [[AddComment]] macro, I get this:

Error: Macro AddComment(None) failed
No module named wiki.formatter

Any ideas?

Comment by anonymous on Thu 23 Jun 2005 10:26:07 EST

The same problem as alexkw@….. any suggestions?

Comment by athomas on Mon 27 Jun 2005 10:42:41 EST

The version of AddCommentMacro for trunk will not work with 0.8.x. Download the version for Trac < 0.9.

I'm hungry! Someone get me a pretzel...

Indifference will certainly be the downfall of mankind, but who cares?
