I am working on a classifieds site where individual users can sign up and, of course, post things they would like to sell.
However, I need for users, both anonymous and signed up, to be able to contact the poster about his or her item.
Using the default comment form for this would be perfect. What would I need to do in order to allow only the author of that node to see the comments for his node? I don't mind writing a module if I need to, but I am not sure how to get started. Even if I had to go that route, sounds like I would need to modify the permissions setting?
I know there are other modules out there like Private Message, but that's just too big and bulky when Comments work almost exactly like I need them to.
