This is exactly the type of thing I JUST was looking for before I checked here.  :chef:

I've been going through your code for the past hour now, and it has become just a SEA of code comments.

I wrote on your page that I would notify if it felt like there was some feature I was missing, and it looks like I am going to add another configuration option to your script. I'm planning on adding a variable that tells it to put the comments display in reverse order, above the input elements, like a chat box instead of a comment box, without having to manually reverse the position of everything in CSS. I'm loathe to make the option a boolean because in the future, there might also be a sort of sideways or deck-of-cards display for the comments.

I may also add an optional auto-refresh timer so it sort of ACTS like a chat box, though the jury's out on the performance of that, since it retrieves & crunches all the data from the Google Sheet when that happens. I'll look into the existence of a POST body, header, or URL parameter set that would make the sheet return only the desired elements, like a database query, so it doesn't have to work with ALL the data and wind up with weird artifacts like those content-less comment objects that pass through the pagePath validation check but don't actually enter the loop that fills out the object's values. I'll be continuing to learn about your code and about the Google Sheets API; you've given me a goal to move toward. The result is going to be a floating element on my main page, so I'll have something to show you when I'm done.  :eyes:

Anyway, I've been thoroughly appreciating what you've done here, and I do hope to give back soon!  :4u: I'll check back in later.

MY VISION IS COMPLETE

THE SCREENSHOT, LOOK AT IT, IT'S ON MY SITE

This is the highest burst of effort I've ever put into one scripting project. I hope I saved you a lot of time with updates here, this was a marathon for me.  :ozwomp:

While I was marking it up for my landing page, I added a couple more updates on top of what I sent you, a little version 1.0.1. I'm probably done messing with it right now, and remember, I really do believe in what you've done here.  :4u:
