Well, I briefly attempted to replace freecomments with the standard(?) more featured comments frame work, but ran into some issues. Basically, I think I'm mis-understanding something. I was hoping to add a website field so commenters could post thier websites as many sites do. However, I couldn't (quickly) figure out how to get a user identified. (when I tried to move over the user name field was removed).
If I got that working I was hoping to get openid used, so users could just login with thier yahoo or google id to add comments, or maybe add a Captcha to avoid comment spam.
Oh well, I guess basic comments should be good enough until I feel a real need otherwise.
Now on to my next tasks feeds.
Django apparently has a good feeds framework, and I expect this to go quick when I eventually dig in and look into it.
Then I guess it's really about time to decide on a name and layout. Design was always the most time consuming element for me.
