Development: Counting Comments Part 2

For some people, using javascript to count an articles comments, wasn't worth the sacrifice. Markus has come up with some rather interesting solutions to this problem in his latest version of CGIComment.

Previously, I used javascript to call on CGIComment to get an entry's comment count, so the more entries on the page, the more CGIComment would be called on. Although I think javascript has it's place, for my purpose it happened to be very redundant solution. CGIComment is capable of rendering comment counts from a special variable that can be placed inside each entry. Add a little more CGI magic, through use of an "index.cgi" and voila! We have a fast commenting solution!
