    Don't use iBlog! iBlog is great for use on sites without any server side processing support as it outputs STATIC pages. For coments you need server side support (and might as well use a different blog engine with build in comment support then).

    Well, I get iBlog for free, because I have a .Mac account. Don't have cash to dish out for other software, or engines!

    Sorry!

    Well that's disappointing to hear. I also got iBlog for free thru .Mac, and am planning to try starting a blog (I don't really have anything to say on it, but hey, this is the internet). So everyone who has a blog with comment capabilities is on a server that offers the appropriate support? Gee, I wish .Mac would do anything along those lines (heck, even PHP support).

    Guys and girls, make sure you write to Apple via their Feedback form and tell 'em how much you want PHP support on our .Mac homepages. Trust me, there are LOTS of other people writing too. So do it, and tell everyone else to do as well. The letters do work. Hell, I wrote them just a few months ago asking for a Blogging tool for our .Mac homepages. I was very surprised to see them give away iBlog for free. I was about to purchase it anyway, so needless to say I was very psyched. Everybody now, "PHP", "PHP", "PHP"......

    I'm hosting mine directly from my mac. I just need support through the iBlog application! (I dont use my homepage.mac.com website because, quite frankly, the mac website has slower pings than my personal webserver, and my bandwidth is plenty to serve these small pages and I HATE (with a passion) how slow my iDisk is)

    Try HaloScan. They provide remotely hosted comments and simple code to paste into your template.
