jQuery-comments plugin not running

There a exist a brilliant comments plugin that I would like to implement on my site. It can be found here https://github.com/Viima/jquery-comments.

However I am having difficulty getting anything to appear when I try to implement it (first time using a plugin). Any suggestions would be great. Below is my code. (I would provide a JSFiddle however the external resources require links starting with "https.." and mine begin with "http...")

The following part of the code that you have typed has a few issues.

<script rel="text/javascript" href="http://**MYURL**.net/jquery-comments.js"></script>

You are using rel="text/javascript" and href="http://**MYURL**.net/jquery-comments.js" instead of type="text/javascript" and src="http://**MYURL**.net/jquery-comments.js"

Ultimately, you should replace the aforementioned block of code with the following one:

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://**MYURL**.net/jquery-comments.js"></script>

Script tags are using type attribute to indicate the type of document that is called (which isn't really a good practice to use anymore according to latest Javascript standards). Also, in order to load, within the script tags, a Javascript file, you have to use src attribute instead of href.

Compare your code with the following one: https://github.com/Viima/jquery-comments#quick-start
