Hey everyone,

I want to put a comment box on my website so that users can comment on various things like my blog, news articles, pictures, etc. I've been trying to find some sort of tutorial on the subject, since I've been diligently learning everything myself because 1.) I don't want to pay for any scripts, or have anyone else do it for me and 2.) I am sincerely interested in learning. I haven't been able to find any tutorials on this subject.

I want a comment box, and I also want to build a forum. Can anyone point me in the right direction; to some good tutorials?
