[resolved] Adding Comments to an individual page (3 posts)

    I am wanting to start a live forum on my website of product comments from users. That is all I want the "page" not "post" to be. I am looking for code, a widget, etc. to make this happen. Is this even possible? I have spent hours researching the forum and keep coming up empty. Also, I want to be able to review the comments and approve them, or at least be able to delete them if they are of bad taste. I also don't want the commenter to have to log in to post a comment. Here is the page that I want to transform into the forum: http://www.gorillanuts.com/testimonials/

    I understand this could slow down my website.

    I would greatly appreciate any help.

  2. It's not free (though $14 isn't exactly expensive) but Bestimonials may just do what you are looking for... especially because it lets visitors submit their own testimonials, plus you can moderate them.

    I've used it on client sites, and it works great!

    Thank you for your comment JerrySarcastic, that is a good idea! I will keep that one in my back pocket.

    I did find somewhat of a solution. I added this code <?php comments_template(); ?> to page.php and unchecked the "allow comments" on each individual page, except for the page that needed the comments. It isn't exactly what I was looking for, but it works for now. I'm not crazy about how it posts the comments on the page right away without approval (it does send you an email to approve the comment, but the comment is still posted with a "pending approval" note) but again, it works.
