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.
