OmniComment

OmniComment is a small script to that enables a Webmaster to add comments to any page. The idea is to include a call to the script in the appropriate page, using an SSI statement. The script will write out the appropriate HTML containing a link to the comments already posted for this page and a form to post new comments. In principle this is similar to Gentle Comment, except it's more lightweight: it uses a flat directory and normal files to store the comment (as opposed to a MySQL database), so it is not appropriate if your Web site receives thousand of comments a minute. Another difference is that all configuration happens in a text file, and there is no Web interface to perform administration. OmniComment generates an ATOM feed that follows publication of comments anywhere in the site.
