In your site skin template you could include

(is $Name available here?  Not sure?)

To show up at the bottom and even insert a link
to them with an ?action=edit to that page.

Alternatively, you could do this with a GroupFooter and
via Wiki lingo if you prefer that (I know this works):

[[{$Name}-Comments?action=edit| Edit Comments]]

(:include {$Name}-Comments:)

Context after the edit won't return you to the page
containing the comments though.  Not sure if that's

It's not forum like though... it's more wiki proper.

With that said... I am toying with the idea of doing
a PmForum add on for pmwiki (using the knowledge I've
gained from doing PmCalendar).  It too won't exactly
be like a typical forum (threaded comment) app .. but
maybe it will be (?)... I shouldn't say anything until
I've got something put together.
