Default Help me with Leave a Reply Form! please

I have been trying to figure out how to do this for a couple days. I'm pretty much a complete noob at web design, but i'm not an idiot.

How can I create the classic 'Leave a Reply' form that you always see at the bottom of a web page. I want the one where any anonymous user can simply input a name and a brief message and then have it displayed along with a time stamp on the same page as the form and the article they are replying too.

I hope that was clear enough. All I can find information for on the web is either multi-paged guestbooks or forms that email. Again id like the comment to be displayed on the same page that it was submitted from.

Thanks a lot

All of those appear to be multi-page guest books, which I have had no problem finding on my own. Perhaps I could try to mess with them to get my desired result, but anything I do would be a guess and probably a waste of my time.

What I want looks something like this.

you can write this yourself or get some one to do this for you or can scoure the net for a free script

depends on which path you want to take

do you want to learn how or do you want a quick solution

you are asking for help but I don't see any notion of what technology you have available to you. Do you have a webhost? what kind of support do they offer for mySQL-PHP, Access or MS SQL and asp or is it a unix box for CGI- Perl. You are new to web design, but if you want to do it yourself you'll have to learn some development as well. Otherwise you can go with already made applications like textPattern, Joomla or whatever is out there. Even if you do go with an already made application, you still need to modify it to fit your desired look and feel. In addition, the process of development is similar in all platforms and any time invested in learning is never a waste of time.

Let us know what technology you have available or if you still in the planning stages, perhaps, that's where we should start.

Hope it helps.

Like others said; either write it yourself, you can start learning PHP from DavidJ's excellent tutorials on this site Or use a something like Wordpress or Joomla which has this feature integrated already.
