“Roll Your Own” Comments System
Based on the e-mails I’ve been getting, it seems other people have run into problems modifying Steve’s PHP comments system for use with their own weblogs. Since I’m in a magnanimous mood, I decided to write up a step-by-step description of everything it took to get mine working. It’s in layman’s terms, and as long as you’ve got PHP support at your host you shouldn’t have any trouble implementing it. It also lists all the problems and workarounds I found, so hopefully you’ll have it easier than I did. Let me know how it goes!
