Static page add comments section
Easy way using a plugin?

 10:51 am on Jan 16, 2007 (gmt 0)

I'm starting a new site and don't want to go down the forum route as I've done it before and its an obscene amount of work.

I'd like to have static html pages with a "comment on this" section at the bottom than runs like a blog so each page effectively becomes dynamic content.

What is the easiest way to do this? I presume I'll have to install a package such as Wordpress or similar?

I've done something like this with a guestbook script - before blogs were cool. I ended up taking it all down because the script I was using was too insecure. It could be pretty unwieldy if you have a lot of pages to deal with, but it worked in the days before blogs and CMS. [A lot of people will tell you that I still live in the days before blogs and CMS. ;) ]

Thanks for the reply, would it be better to have a separate blog then on a subdomain? Hadnt thought of having to modify scripts on a whole bunch of static pages - could be a headache.

I don't want to do a forum as we already manage a site with one on the area of interest, I'd still like to get reader interactivity so thought of the blogging or "add your comments" option.

Wordpress would be a great tool for this - it even has a "page" creation section that functions like a CMS but allows comments. It can easily function in its own directory on a larger site, too.
