I’ve been trying to not use Disqus for comments because why use outside comment hosting when you can beat your face against a wall trying to reinvent the wheel right? But I am quickly reaching the conclusion that Disqus is the way to go. Every function I want is there. Gravatars will still work. Editing. Threading. Liking. All the good stuff.
I am gonna back everything up and then install Disqus. It should just fall right over the top of existing comments. Here’s to hoping.
So I had a setting on that forced you to register at Disqus. Turned it off. But you do have to log in per comment with an email, so registering will save you a shit ton of time. And I promise I won’t change systems every two minutes and force you to register at eleventy places. It’s either the old native comments I have to build a Disqus like system for, or Disqus. That’s it. I won’t even *look* for anything else. I know you all must be getting annoyed with my tinkering by now.
