    Shrug iWeb and .Mac are probably your best bet...:confused:

    A recent update to iWeb allows people to leave comments on blog entries - you could use that feature, right??? By the way, I think you need .Mac for the comment function to work.

    If you already have iWeb, .Mac is less than 100 bucks and it gives you a domain (kind of...) for a year.

    phpBB is the devil.




    If Vanilla does do it for you look at punBB. But my recommendation would be Vanilla.

    Database connection to 'localhost' could not be established or permission is denied.
