More administration

HTML comments are enabled. Don't abuse them through laziness (close them!). Also, a cookie should remember the last values you put in for the identifying information.

Update: Number of comments per entry added. Also, comments should now show up when you click the permlink. Note for those who care/understand, the entry value is passed to PHP via the GET method, so if you remove the "entry" parameter, it will return an mysql error where "comments" should go-though entry content will be fine (ie; if you bookmark/record the permlink but remove the parameter value at the end). For GNXP bloggers, if you want comments to show up in the individual entry, rebuild that entry by by editing it....

Also, I haven't added the comment system to any of the other template pages (category archive, date archive, etc.) because 7 days seems sufficient to express your opinion. I also haven't added a commenting facility in the individual entry page for that reason, though people will be able to read comments there...don't want people coming in via google to express themselves after the conversation has died....

I think the comment system is pretty close to doing what the old one did-but tell me if you have any other needs on this thread. Otherwise, back to blogging as usual....

Update II:

Note for those who care/understand, the entry value is passed to PHP via the GET method, so if you remove the "entry" parameter, it will return an mysql error where "comments" should go-though entry content will be fine (ie; if you bookmark/record the permlink but remove the parameter value at the end).

Ignore this. I made it so the entry value is extracted from the file name....
