I would like some help with putting a comment box on a website I own. I think Javascript is what I'm supposed to use but I'm not sure. I'm a noob when it comes to coding. The only thing I can find are Shoutboxes, but I don't really like those. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

So basically you want someone to click on a link (let's say "Add Your Comment"), which sends them to a form, which sends the data to either a text file or database for that page, which then displays the same data the original page. If this is the case, you may want to look into server side languages. PHP could do this easily, have a look at this page (http://www.smackum.com/?page=review&rid=2) and scroll to the comments section and tell me if this is something like you are talking about. If so, I could show you the code for it. Also, look around the PHP and ASP forums, there are some comments scripts floating around somewhere.

Hope this helps.

Javascript can't create something like this, since it can't save any data entered onto the server. However, there are plug and play comment services out there you can add to your site, such as JS-Kit (http://js-kit.com/).

Thank you, both. Either of those would be great but I'm not very good with codes and scripts. I use Yahoo! Sitebuilder which is pretty much for begginers. It lets me put in HTML and Iframe but that's about it. I should probably take a class on using PHP sometime. Anyways, could you maybe simplify what I should do?
