Recap: working on getting PmWiki set up, for the first time.

I'm running into some problems with FoxCommentBox.

So, I'm trying to get FoxCommentBox working. I get it set up so the form displays at the bottom of the pages (ex: Cosms.CoreEarth), and I included all the code it seemed to require.

However, though the form accepts input, and even submits, it will not write to the Cosms.CoreEarth-Feedback page. I double-checked, to make sure each page ref was using the correct -Feedback format, but it still will not write.

I've backed up my wiki to my local computer, and removed the "edit" password, so people can take a look at the config files, to see if I missed something or messed something up.

This is the last bit of basic functionality I need to implement. Any help would be appreciated.

> For #2 I'd personnally use the (:include ...... :) directive (see http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWiki/IncludeOtherPages )  to include the page with comments in my main article, so I can keep them separated, but displayed on a single page, for ex. (:include Cosms.CoreEarth-comments :) with Cosms.CoreEarth-comments using the form above. If you prefer to really separate te display, you can have a look at how comments ("talk") are implemented on pmwiki.org pages : http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWiki/GroupFooter?action=edit
