Check usage and version matrix.

This extension adds a "discussion" panel to any page, where users can post blog-like comments. An example can be viewed here.

Usage[edit]

To add discussion to a page, add the following wiki text:

<discussion />

You can also specify various parameters, e.g.

<discussion>
  characters_max=0
  incremental=0
</discussion>

will remove restriction on the number of characters in a comment, and will display Previous/Next buttons instead of More. Here is a complete list of parameters.
