I’ve gone ahead and finished up a majority of the commenting engine… I needed something to get my mind off work work stuff for a bit this afternoon so I put some effort into it.
I decided that you have to go to the posts single page (which will also be the RSS page for it here in the near future) to post any comments. The throbber/fader thingy will display all of the comments in the short view, on a rotating basis every 12 seconds. I think I need some formatting and such, but other than that, it’s working quite nicely.
I have to give a shout out to two groups for making the throbber thing possible. One is the Script.aculo.us people for making such easy to use fading code.
I also haven’t tested in IE yet, OR added a URL field to the post comment form. In any case, it’s pretty good for where it needs to be. Why not give it a whirl and let me know what you think of the new site and commenting engine.
