View Full Version : Adding comments section to your blog

07-24-2009, 11:14 AM
I have a blog site that I built the content management system myself with php. Now I need to add comment section for eacharticle, but dont want to go through the trouble of programming it. Does anyone know a good ready comment management program that I can add into my site?

I think coding it yourself would be better (I don't know of any systems like this). It should be simple, stick the comments in a table columns with postID, author, email, uri, datetime and do a query. If you want to approve the first comment from an author, check the email field against a true/false value. Or...something. I really would have recommended starting from a ready made blog system, unless this is a learning experience, in which you really should do the coding yourself.

Try searching on phpclasses.org. I'm sure you'll find something suitable there.

TBH, to code this up wouldn't take more than a few of hours. If you want me to do it for you, give me a PM and we can go from there.
