Puzil Upgrade

I upgraded my blog to use Puzil validation for comments and trackback.

Now, when comments are added, the poster needs to answer a simple question to have their post accepted. Not more automated comment SPAM for me :)

The code i added to the blogger template is below. I still use haloscan to manage trackback - i just ask that you you add through Puzil.

<MainOrArchivePage><BlogItemCommentsEnabled> <a class="comment-link" href="<$BlogItemPermalinkUrl$>"<$BlogItemCommentFormOnclick$>> <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript" src="<$BlogItemPermalinkUrl$>"></script> comments</a>
<a href="<$BlogItemPermalinkUrl$>">[add]</a> <a href="javascript:HaloScanTB('<$BlogItemNumber$>');" target="_self"><script type="text/javascript">postCountTB('<$BlogItemNumber$>'); </script></a>
<a href="<$BlogItemNumber$>">[add]</a></BlogItemCommentsEnabled></MainOrArchivePage>

I don't control HaloScan so i can't validate the trackback validation code that has been sent from Puzil - maybe i will add something to support this at some point - or maybe talk with them to support a code check ;)
