Allowing Readers To Comment

Posted 19 January 2005 - 08:52 AM

I used LiveJournal and Xanga for a journal. But I really wanted the journal I had online to be my own, look how I wanted it, that sort of thing. Now that I have it, I miss the comments that you would be able to have if you used LJ or Xanga. I did some thinking and I think that form submission is the way to go [could be wrong] so is there anyway I can do this I can make is so that the form submits a comment on my site, and sends me an email telling me that someone has comemnted? Or should I look at some other idea?

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

You can certainly implement comments on your site through a form. All you need is a database to hold the comments (or a text file, but that makes the required script a little more complex), and the scripting to record, find, and pull the comments. What scripting languages does your host support?

Alternatively, you can download free blogging software, and modify the look until you get what you want.

i have 2, one is mysql(free downlaod)i modifyed to do query strings, and one i made for flat files.

basicly it uses php self as to load and post with querry string also.

i dont know these programs you are useing,
but if each journal entry has its own url, it will work.
example,
load_journal.php?journal=entryname
or
load_entryname.html , load_thatname.html

if it is,
load_journal.php
then all posts will be shown posted on that page.

i made for my site, if you need it, contact me i will send the one you want, MySQL or flatfiles.
i dont have them up for download.
