Trying out “Disqus” for comments

by ,

Let me know what you think of the new comment system.
I’ve installed if for all zero-comment posts (which includes all new posts), so old posts with comments still have the old WordPress commenting system.

This may involve you having to create a Disqus account, but the idea is that you can use that account across blogs.
I am also setting up Disqus on
Tech Tok
so you only have to create your account once for both places.

Leo Laporte has also set up his blog to use it.
Maybe it will spread everywhere.

The idea is that your comments belong to you, and Disqus makes it easier to follow people, as opposed to blogs.

    I mean I had to change the design of my blog to prevent the comment box from showing up 2 page-scrolls down below the content.

    It could be a bug in my self-designed theme though, so don't lose any sleep over it. 🙂

    Hah, just found out I can “follow” people by looking at your Disqus page. This is looking cooler and cooler. Slight performance issues though.
