The Picket Line is a roll-your-own, home-made blog, using some simple CSS and PHP for layout and such. What it doesn’t have is a comments feature — and that’s a wheel I’m not interested in reinventing.
So what I’m wondering is if there’s some service out there that I can use to add this feature to The Picket Line. I don’t want to move the site as a whole over to blogspot or livejournal or what have you — ideally I’d like to be able to put a “comments” link at the bottom of each Picket Line entry and have that link to an interactive comments thread for that entry hosted externally to The Picket Line.
Update: At first I tried Haloscan and it worked well for a while, but then abruptly cut off its free plan. I’ve since switched over to Disqus, but sadly lost the many Haloscan comments during the transition. I think I’ve managed to recover most of them, but some may be gone forever.
