Need a 'feedback/comments' feature for my site

Isn't there a simple way for someone to comment on a site that you've made or leave feedback?

I have tried to add a 'guestbook' in the form of a widget on my site, but what's the point of these as you get the comments left on say widgetboxes site when you copy the html code. Or am I doing something wrong?

I didn't want to add a forum as people have to sign-up to use it, and I feel this may put people off using it.

Any good suggestions to this one people?

Hi tels7,

My personal favourite for a comment box is "web messages" from widget box. It comes empty and is easy to use.

Add a widget box or widget box gallery widget to your site and search for "web messages". Customise the message box and then click on "get widget" to get the code to paste onto your site.

I have tried 'web messages' but this particular widget is not working, and judging by the comments left on it, hasn't been working for some time.

I'm sorry to hear that tels7, I wasn't aware that there was a problem with web messages, I'll look into that.

Here is another suggestion for you. You can try out a box at http://www.cbox.ws/
1. Go to http://www.cbox.ws/ and register for free.
2. You can then copy the code from the 'get the code' text area
3. Go to SynthaSite and drag and drop an HTML widget onto your page and paste your code into the HTML editor
4. You should then have a new box!

An advantage of this comment box is that you are able to administer the box (delete messages/block users etc.), simply log into http://www.cbox.ws/ click on the 'Admin' tab and then the 'messages' menu item on the left.
