Hi.

Please, is there a way to restrict the Discusions per page or folder basis?

I can see how fine grained is the control for the Comments plugin, where you can setup where comments are allowed and where new comments are not allowed. But for Discussion you can only set Yes or Now. Is it possible to restrict the Discusions per page or folder basis? I know I can do that by using a template with de discussion link removed, but of course that is the path to a mess.

TIA.

That's a limitation of ikiwiki, currently.

But, I think most sites find that comments work better for discussion anyway, since they let users subscribe to email notifications and are generally nicer.

I forgot to mention that, while Branchable wikis don't have comments enabled by default you can easily enable them on the Setup page, and disable discussion pages too if you like.

Maybe we should default new wikis at Branchable to having comments enabled? It works well for me in my own wikis here..

I am in favor of disabling Discussion pages by default, on new wikis and blogs, and enabling comments by default on new blogs.
