@eli Quill was actually pretty easy to get working! I opted to use sqlite for the DB so I wouldn't have to fuss with mySQL and my web host's control panel. Finding the right places to enable annotating a
like-of post was a little more involved, but turned out to be straightforward once I had traced through the data flow.
@seishonagon @amit Now that I understand the pieces it's easy to look back with a lot of comprehension, but there's definitely a learning/implementation curve. I'm really, really satisfied with having figured it out and joined up all the pices that I'm using so far. (Of course, my host made a change that temporarily broke things today! Aaaack.)
@seishonagon it can most certainly be daunting — quill is documented, but spareslly, especially if you haven't done much config. before. Luckily, there area already a couple of publicly accesible instances of quill, so it isn't necessary to host your own to use. As soon as I'm sure mine is up and running a-okay, I'll post a link to it for others to use.
