Question: Some of our principals have asked if it is possible for parents and other visitors to leave comments on individual pages of our Website. Is this possible without re-creating our entire Website and using blogs or some other type of content management system as a database backend?

The IT Guy says:
Yes, this is definitely possible. One free way to do this is to sign up to use Haloscan. Haloscan is used most frequently to add interactive commenting functionality to third party blogging client software programs, but commenting can be inserted and enabled on standard static school Webpages as well. It also allows users to employ “Moderation,” which is certainly a good idea for all educational Websites that students are likely to visit. Someone on the IT staff can be assigned to log in daily and view submitted comments, approving or disapproving those submitted as appropriate or inappropriate.
