How to use

To show the comments on a page copy and paste the following code:

If your site uses php:

 <?php require("/path/to/your/www-home/comments/comments.php"); ?>

                 OR

 <?php virtual("/comments/comments.php"); ?>
 (doesn't work on some server configurations)

 You can find out what is path to your www-home with code like that:
 <?php echo dirname(__FILE__); ?>

 DO NOT use this script like that: require("http://yoursite.com/comments/comments.php").
 In this case you'll get the same comments for all your pages.

If your site uses SSI:

 <!--#include virtual="/comments/comments.php" -->

If your site uses ASP:

 <!--#include file="/comments/comments.php" -->
 (not tested)

The script recognizes itself the page where it is included and displays comments for this page.

You can create your own templates in "./templates" folder or edit existing files to customize
appearance of the comments. You can find several language files in "./lang" folder and you can
create your own language file there. Don't forget to edit "config.php" in order to use your
tempalte or language file. Please send me your templates and language files to hide@address.com,
I will include them to the packadge.
