Like all my apps, commentsEngine is fully documented with code examples and a live code sample inside the download file. The docs contain a full explanation of the features and how they can be used. You can find a copy of the documentation here

The commentsEngine is built using the latest in web technology. As such it works best in browsers using the latest standards. We recommend using a CSS3 standard browser. However this is a public facing app and as such it is designed to work okay to well with browsers down to IE7 . It is not, however, tested with IE6 or lower. Please keep that in mind before using this on your site.

This app uses javascript – there is no ‘unscripted’ version. It’s all or nothing.
