I’m sick of the old WordPress comment system. It’s hopeless, and there is now way too much spam.
So I have just installed the Disqus plugin that will hopefully be much better. You’ll be able to log into the comment using any existing social media account you have, and it should keep the spam away.
No previous WordPress comments will be lost, and they will be imported over.
But this will take some time, maybe a day or two. So don’t panic about seeing it say there are 20 comments, but no comments. They should come through eventually.
So you shouldn’t see too much of a difference, except that you should now have extra features in the comment system here on the blog site, and be able to follow threads and get notifications etc, attach images, and vote comments up and down etc. Huge improvement over wordpress.
