For example? I've been through all the alternatives and they all have problems. Either they don't do what Slash does, or they do but only with a lot of modification, or they do and have similar installation issues. While I'd love to use something easy to install that runs on shared hosting, I haven't come across anything that will do this that has a comment/moderation system as good as Slash. If there is something I've missed, do tell!
Why would you even want to install slash when there are so many other
great alternatives out there?
