    Need a script for a comment section on my site

    Hey guys I just created my first website and I don't know much about programming. I was wondering what's the easiest way to let visitors leave comments on articles that I post.

    I know blogs already have a comment section built into them but my site's not a blog and I'm not using a template. Is there some kind of script I can implement into my site to let visitors leave comments?

    I haven't tried it yet but I'm thinking about giving the Google Comments Gadget a go:

    I have a bit of a prejudice towards gadgets/widgets, I tried using some on my website and they seem to slow the pages down quite a lot. Another thing I'm worried about is that I think the comments people leave in the gadget will be stored on one of Google's servers and not actually on my own site, so the site won't get any credit for new content being added. Can anybody confirm if this is the case or not?

    Okay I had a go with Google's gadget and it was a waste of time. I couldn't even get it to work - I got an error message telling me to edit a setting that doesn't seem to exist. Apparently other people are having trouble with it too.

    Here's another option: http://www.citricle.com/products/rateback
    I don't know anything at all about it except that another user recommended it.
