I'm looking to do inline comments in my theme. I've looked through the plugins section and it's a mess of old broken hacks, so far as I can tell.
It seems like AJAX commenting should be accomplished by a standard method supported in the wordpress core but I don't see evidence of it. I'd gut P2 but frankly it looks like a mess al it's own.
I'm hoping that I missed something. Please help me find a good, simple, clean way to implement this. The baseline for my project is:
1. Small, jquery based.
2. Submit comments inline without a page reload
3. Handles form validation/post errors gracefully
4. Load posted comment quickly without a page reload
5. Compatible with WP 2.9.1
Above and beyond would be ajax/comet/realtime loading of all comments as they are posted.
