i am trying to put a comment box with reply underneath [so I, the web owner] can reply to the commentor and also take out offensive comments.

I found a code snippet on the web which I inserted into my website which did put a comment box on my site with a submit mouse link which did not go anywhere: I tried to use this comment box from own computer and also from my wife's computer with two different results but both a NoGo, i.e, "about blank" etc

Here is the snippet:
<!-- HTML Codes by
<style type="text/css">
textarea.html-text-box {background-color:#ffffff;background-image:url(http://);background-repeat:no-repeat;background-attachment:fixed;border-width:1;border-style:solid;border-color:#cccccc;font-family:Arial;font-size:14pt;color:#000000;}
input.html-text-box {background-color:#ffffff;font-family:Arial;font-size:14pt;color:#000000;}
<form method="post" action="http://"><textarea name="comments" cols="30" rows="5" class="html-text-box">Comments here...</textarea><br><input type="submit" value="Submit" class="html-text-box"><input type="reset" value="Reset" class="html-text-box"></form>
<p></p> -->

Can anyone tell me how to get it to work, something else I must modify on my site, etc? I know HTML basics but not cascading style sheets, Java, etc.

Hi Jan,
What I would do is a have a protected page that displays the comments and allows you to delete, edit, or comment back.
I can't hear what I'm looking at.
It's easy to overlook something you're not looking for.

This is a site I built for my work.(RSD)
This is a site I built for use in my job.(HTML Editor)
This is my personal site used for testing and as an easy way to share photos.(RLM imported to RSD)

Have something to add? We’d love to hear it!
