Buttons Available when Leaving a Comment on a Document


Enter post (your thoughts, feedback, and comments) regarding a KB document in the Discussion text box at the bottom of any document with blogging enabled. Posts are displayed in reverse chronological order (most recent post displays at the top of the section).

Any URLs included in a post will be converted to HTML links. All other html is ignored.


Posts can be edited by the owner of the post.


Posts can be deleted by the moderator (KB Administrators with "Publish" rights). The delete button will only appear for the moderator. The Delete button will hide the post; it will not delete the post from the database.


Posts can be replied to. The text of the original post will be appended below a dashed (- - - - - - - - - - - ) line.
