The latest b2 public release (installed on my dir in tidakada.com) has a bug in the comments, not the HTML tags issue, actually.

For instance the e-mail and website name fields require something to be put in, which shouldn't be (not required in GM comments anyway), especially when you're a long-time visitor and aren't too keen on entering your website and e-mail addresses for free advertisement and shameless hits : ) 

b2 is great, power to b2! [this blog powered by b2]

it's not a bug, it's a feature. remember all the empty 'name,@,http://,comment' things we got ? this helps stopping this behaviour. also, now that the info is stored on cookies it shouldn't be much of a problem to long time visitors.
this is going to be an option in the general options page though, like allowing html in comments etc.

and should be turned off by default. b2 should be able to handle blank e-mail/website fields anyway.

I'd like to ask, what if the visitors have neither e-mail nor websites? What are you going to do about that? You can't expect everyone on the internet to have an e-mail address or website.

to completely remove such notices, why don't you just simply remove the 'name, e-mail, comments' fields somewhere else? like putting the labels NEXT to the fields.

another thing: how about a filter that gives feedback when there's no comment at all (or accidentally untouched)?

What is b2 ?
A classy news/weblog tool (aka logware).

How does it work ?
You type something and hit "blog this" and in the next second it's on your page(s). You can write extended entries, or even entries that span multiple pages. You can also use BloggerAPI clients to post to your b2 weblog.
What's original in b2 ? Pages are generated dynamically from the MySQL database, so no clumsy 'rebuilding' is involved. It also means faster search/display capabilities, and the ability to serve your news in different 'templates' without any hassle.

Requirements ?
A server that can run PHP4, and a MySQL database (you can install b2 in an already existing database, and you can put several b2's in one database).

Where can I download it ?
b2 0.6 is the latest public release.
You can also visit the CVS server for the latest code, at your own risks.
See the ReadMe file for requirements and installation instructions.

Contact info ?
E-mail: m@tidakada.com
Forums: over there. :)
