Welcome to the IBM Connections Product Ideas Lab! The place where you can submit product ideas and enhancement request. We encourage you to participate by voting on, commenting on, and creating new ideas. All new ideas will be evaluated by the IBM Product Management & Engineering teams, and the next steps will be communicated. While not all submitted ideas will be executed upon, community feedback will play a key role in influencing which ideas are and when they will be implemented.

For more information and upcoming events, please visit our IBM Connections page.


Option to disable the comments in wikis

In our company, wikis are very often used for user instructions and as a knowledge archive.
Especially with the instructions, many users ask questions and provide feedback in the comments on the wiki pages - which quickly becomes confusing. And a forum is better for a Q&A.

Therefore it would be very useful if the community owner can control the comment function in wikis and can disable it - similar to the email to community function.

    Just to flesh out your use case.

    In terms of consistency, do you use standard content on pages to direct people to an appropriate topic ?

    One of the advantages of page comments is that they are immediately relatable to the page - they are very difficult to aggregate though when your focus is the discussion rather than the content.

    Regarding your question:
    Yes - your are right the the comments are immediately relatable to the page. But in 90% the users use the comments area to start a discussion (first ask a question and then it becomes quickly confusing) instead of enter a simple comment like "Thanks for this hint!".

    I didn't quite understand the first question, sorry.
