Comments Extension (seancribbs version)

I recently exported Sean C.’ Comments extension and realized that
there are absolutely no view files provided.

Sean, was this intentional?

Arik,

Wow, I can’t believe anyone actually tried that. It was VERY
incomplete, thus I didn’t really announce it. Use Ryan’s if you want
something actually functional. 0.7 will be the blogging release (sorry,
not for a while yet), so we’ll probably cook something up based on
Ryan’s for that release.

Ryan’s doesn’t work though. It seems to be conflicting with the
page_group_permissions extension (specifically the only_allow_access_to
method)

If you’re really interested, I’ll put it up on GitHub, then accept any
patches you have for it. I don’t have time to work on it right now and
I’m planning to cancel my TextDrive account when it expires in June, so
my SVN will go away. In the meantime, one can use HaloScan (as the
Radiant blog does), or Disqus, which has nice looking comments forms
(hellovenado.com uses this).

Arik,

Quick plug for Disqus comments –

Disqus has treated me very well. We’ve used it in a number of small
projects and for these use cases it was better than a built-in
commenting system as the additional publicity / community exposure
created through the comment threads being aggregated on the Disqus
site itself was a helpful… Also, I moved a several old blog entries
from an earlier project to my Radiant site and was able to bring the
comments along with me with no extra effort.

I don’t need an entire social network backing my comments. I just need
simple comments (name, email, website, comment, that’s it!). But Disqus
is an interesting tool nonetheless, I may check it out. Not sure yet.
