Using comments as shoutbox?
I’m currently using this Shoutbox plugin but have run into some issues with shouts disappearing instead of going into moderation or even the Akismet spam queue. So I’m wondering if its possible to create a page with comments enabled, grab say 10 latest comments from that page, and display it in my sidebar. I’ve seen some “recent comments” plugins but I’m not sure if they can specifically list comments from one page/post.
Of course besides displaying the comments I’ll need the form for posting. Is it possible to have a form in my sidebar on my index page that submits to that specific page’s comments?
Basically this will let me do two things: 1) Make use of any spam and comment plugins. Spam was the #1 problem with the Jalenack AJAX shoutbox. Waikay’s shoutbox plugin kinda works with Akismet but like I mentioned there’s some problem with disappearing comments. And 2) easily view the “full log” of the shoutbox; just go to the page itself. So… any ideas?
