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!
