Feedback is not possible on individual file-based artefacts

Bug #668236 reported by Andy Parker on 2010-10-29

Bug Description

The current 1.3 version allows a person accessing a view to access the details page for an image, and provide feedback on the image.

Where a file is available as part of a view, the Provide Feedback link is missing.

This seems inconsistent.

The request is for comments to be able to be added for files as well as images,

This could be best implemented by giving the Institution Administrator the ability to allow/deny comments on individual artefact types.

Hi Andy,

Any uploaded file can receive comments. When you use "File(s) to Download", you get a "Details" link which will take you to the artefact page where you can leave a comment. If you choose "A Folder", you can click on the file and get to the artefact page.

On Mahara, it's the individual user who decides if he wants to receive comments on his artefacts or views as the portfolio is learner-centered. Thus, such a decision should not be forced upon him.


There are some issues with this. My previous comment was based on what I could test on which runs on 1.3.2testing. There it worked, on it did not. Check the forum discussion at
