If you are not using CommentIt - it's time you tried it - because it's
really good - and it gives your Web pages a life of their own. Read about it
and download it at http://www.baylys.com:8080/manila/plugins/commentIt

New bits: Now the submit buttons on your forms can be images. :-)

Good old bits:
Works on both dynamic and statically rendered Manila sites.
You can choose to be e-mailed when a new comment is added.
Comments can be restricted to editors only.
Comments can be restricted to logged in members only.
Comments can be appear to logged in members only.
You can decide what pages can receive comments and what pages can't.
Comments can appear on both stories and discussion group messages.
Templates for the input forms so you can change the text and what fields are
collected, even adding additional fields.
An output template so you can design your response format.
Includes a powerful workgroups feature: only workgroup members can view
messages posted by other workgroup members. Particularly useful in the
educational setting.
Easy to modify the text that appears on the comment button

Great for documentation sites, educational sites, local travel sites and
basically every type of site you can think of.

What is it?
CommentIt is a Manila Plug-in by Jim Byrne and David Bayly.

CommentIt lets visitors to your site append comments to the bottom of your
web pages. Great for sites where :

* a full-blown discussion Forum/membership system just seems like overkill

* you like to keep your low-bandwidth visitors happy

* you would like to keep comments on the pages they refer to.

It also does lots!

I had hoped to add this latest version to http://plugins.weblogger.com - but
it seems to be down at the moment.

All the best,
