    Book/article on multi-threaded comments?


    Does anybody know of a good book/website where it is explained how to write multi-threaded comments? something similar to how forums work.

    I tried writing my own code but and it works, but I'm having trouble with the recursion part and the reply buttons. Basically, the code I wrote doesn't enable users to reply to comments made by other users, I'm struggling a bit with the id's and the parent_id's.

    Multi-threaded like a forum, or multi-threaded like reddit/metafilter?

    A forum is easy. Attach each post to a "topic" and display them in chronological order.

    True multi-threaded conversations are harder.
