HTML Question.

Hiya. My website has a blog section, and I'd like to add a feature where people can add a comment, with user-defined name, email, and entry fields. Think Tinkers' Guild, but slightly prettier.

Does it have to be Java? Some people have theirs turned off. This is all still new and weird to me.

Hmm... using that backbone might work. If I just make it so no one could make a root post. Meh.

I've been okay with HTML so far, but this is a little funky for me.

Thanks for the time,
Steve

To do what you are thinking PHP would probably work the best. I am not sure if you could use javascript. PHP can get kind of complicated, just a forewarning. Also to use PHP you will need a database or just space on a host for your website.

CAN be done w/ Java, but most hosting services wont allow you to run servelets and using the client-side jvm will be an issue because there are about a billion different versions in common circulation.

PHP is tough to learn, but is definately better suited to the job, and there are scads of free scripts out there that you can either use, or discect to learn from.

Also... check back with the maker of your blog. They usually have a section that includes "hacks" that other users of the blog software make. I would think commenting would be a commonly asked hack.

Look for it first. Better that way then writing your own, especially if you are learning how to code.

Hiya! Thanks, and I'm the guy who coded my blog and site, etc... it's been a blast so far. I've wanted to add some sort of comments feature to the end of each posting, just so I know it's being read.

Inline a toolset? These unfamilliar terms remind me of when I first started learning Photoshop
