Comments Gone Inline

We now have “inline” comments. Actually, it’s the same link as the javascript comments, but loaded into the same page rather than as a popup. The format is more restrictive than if I had used individual archive entries (date tags produce an error, EntryExcerpt tag used rather than a full entry, and I had to use an absolute link to return to the weblog), but all in all, I think it works pretty well. Like it? Or do you prefer popups? Tell me what you think.

Also tell me if my page FOUCs up again.

    Personally, I’m a popup person. But I may be in the minority; I don’t know.

    Does anyone know of a comment service I could use for my blog?(which is not powered by any blogging service, but just made by me, on Geocities.) I’m really wanting to get some sort of comment thing set up. : /

    D – Unfortunately, these local comments scripts require a CGI, ASP, or PHP capable host, and Geocities has none of those. The best you can do, I think, is get a guestbook. Geocities has one built in.

    Testing, testing. Just ignore this post, please. Hello?

    I prefer pop-up comments, myself, if only because I’m used to leaving them by closing the pop-up window. In other words, I had to restart IE twice ’cause I accidentally closed it. :)

    (Mind you, I use Greymatter’s built-in comments system on my blog, so comments there are inline…)

    Paulo-aw darn, I have an idea, but it’s semi-complicated. o_0 What about Dot Comments? Might that work?
