How do you Comment? (WordPress vs. DISQUS)

Last week I asked some folks on Twitter about their thoughts on using WordPress comments versus a third party application such as DISQUS. The questions sparked some interesting discussion and debate, but 140 characters can only do so much so today I’m opening the floor to discussion. Some thoughts…

WordPress: Is there value in simplicity?

There are pros and cons to both – and as you can see here, I opt for the old school WordPress based comments. I have used DISQUS in the past, and there is something about relying on a third party application to store ALL of your blog comments that just doesn’t sit well with me – couple it with the fact that there is little you can do to customize the aesthetic’s of DISQUS and there are reoccurring issues with their servers being down and people temporarily “losing” their comments – it doesn’t spell out to something I’ve wanted to throw onto my own blog.

DISQUS: More options for the win?

That’s not to say there isn’t an argument for using DISQUS or some other similar application. It does allow for threaded/nested commenting which all WordPress themes do not support. It gives you the ability (after logging into DISQUS.com to view, moderate, and edit all of the comments you have left around the web (on all blogs, not just your own). And – probably the most desirable feature in my mind is the fact that you receive automatic email notifications when someone replies to your comment. With WordPress – you need a plugin and your commenter’s must “opt in” to receive email notification of a reply.

What do you think?

I’m seeing more and more people go the DISQUS route – I’m not sure that one is better than the other, but I’m interested to hear (and I think a lot of others are as wel) your opinion(s) on what you use, which you prefer, and why.

  1. I love WP commenting. I’m not a big fan of disqus – maybe I’m just a noob but I hate how it asks for name, e-mail and website every time before logging in “as a guest” and then asking “Wait, Emily Jane, is that YOU?” It just seems more of a pain in the arse than anything and I don’t see anything wrong with WP commenting at all!

    • I hear you Emily – I’m a very “simplistic” person when it comes to design and what I do on my blog – I think it’s easy to overwhelm people with options and again, I’ve seen nothing wrong with the standard out-of-the box WordPress comments (although I’ve customized this area – as you can see – quite a bit).

      • I know this topic is older, but I actually did a search because I’ve put Disqus on my site and wanted to write about it.

        I prefer Disqus for the options it gives out of the box. Sure, I have more styling options with the standard commenting, but the abuse from spam in the past months has been outstandingly bad on my site.

        Disqus seems to of changed all of that recently.

  3. I’ve seen DISQUS used more commonly, and I like it because as a regular commenter, I can review where/when/what I’ve commented. I like that I can choose which profile I log 0nto to comment (although I pretty much always use Twitter). On my own blog, which I don’t heavily promote, the WordPress comment system works just fine, yet I also don’t have many comments. I think if I had a high volume of traffic/comments, I’d want to use DISQUS. It’s familiar to a lot of people, and it makes it really easy to share the content you read across the web. Having those options provided by DISQUS are a good thing.

    • What does logging in via different profiles do? I have a DISQUS account so I just log into that (rather than Twitter, Facebook, etc). Does it update your Twitter status when you leave a comment? Do you find any value in that with other people clicking through from Twitter to see what you said?

      I agree that DISQUS is becoming more and more familiar and “standard” across the board – I wonder if WordPress will do something with a future release to “compete” with some of the features DISQUS offers…

      • I like that DISQUS encourages people to be active with comments, rather than sort of lurking and just reading. I’ve noticed since I’ve been commenting more frequently with DISQUS lately, I’ve had some quality people find me on Twitter, and I’ve discovered some brilliant minds through DISQUS too. It will be interesting to see if WordPress will release any upgrades to compete. I totally get the simplicity aspect, though. It clearly works! And based on some of the comments below, you’re definitely not the only one who uses it.

        Matt you’re a pro at starting discussions! You have a talent for encouraging people to put on their thinking caps on Monday mornings. :)

        • Thanks Catherine – I’m glad we are all getting our thoughts out – the goal of this post was really just to create a platform for discussion and to weigh the pros and cons. I can def. see the benefit DISQUS brings of capturing the essence of discussion and getting people to come back and respond (as you have here) – I do generally get a pretty decent # of subscribers for each post (maybe around 30-40%) – I’m interested to see if there would be even MORE discussion if I integrated DISQUS and it’s automatic notifications into the mix…

        • Yeah good point. I think it’s appealing because you know you’ll actually get a reply from people! With native apps, you usually don’t ever know if anyone’s replied to you unless you revisit the site. I love that disqus threads the comments and also notifies you of replies to things you’ve said. Makes having a conversation much easier!!

      • WordPress.com is already doing something to “compete” with Disqus, since they bought Intense Debate, so WP.com hosted blogs get that juice. I wouldn’t be surprised if future versions of WP.org don’t include out-of-the-box support for ID.

  5. I’m with Emily-Jane – it always seems more of a faff when you’re leaving a comment via DISQUS, although the feature to amend your own comments on other blog does sound good too. I’ve always been happy with WP all in all.

    • Agreed – it’s sort of those “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” kind of things, you know? I’m just wondering if DISQUS is a valuable tool to build community – as it automatically notifies you of any folllow-up comments or replies, encouraging you to come back and continue discussion…

  7. I’ve used Disqus in the past (twice, actually), as well as IntenseDebate. I do like the extra options that each system gives you (social media reactions, cross-profiling, bulk moderation, etc). Yet I also dislike the hoops that they can put you through (as mentioned in the comments already).

    Additionally, I find the servers to be temperamental (reactions not showing, comment database disappearing then reappearing minus comments). And although I’m unsure about IntenseDebate, it would seem that Disqus isn’t too mobile-friendly when it comes to actually leaving comments via its system.

    I love the simplicity that WordPress comments offers. I also love the way it integrates into your chosen theme (customization of third-party options don’t offer too much in the way of this). And there are various options via plug-ins that allow the features that Disqus and IntenseDebate offer.

    I do like Disqus, but for now I’ll remain on the old faithful WordPress options. :)

    • I think that’s the main reason why I’ve stuck it out with WordPress – I really do like the customization you can do (as I’ve done here) to give the comment area a little extra pop. There’s not much you can do with any of the third party apps – at least not that I’ve seen.

      Being that you’ve used DISQUS a couple times, did you notice any spike in your traffic and # of comments while using it? The ONE feature that keeps me wondering if I should make the switch is the fact that it does notify you of all replies to your comment. Wondering if this really makes much of a difference…thoughts?

    • Heh, it’s ironic seeing you reply to Matt for I was about to email you an FYI about his post…and then I saw your name! LOL

      The thing I also dislike about Disqus (note: I haven’t seen every comment here) is it seems I can’t unsubscribe to comments. I’ve emailed the Disqus help support people for, uhh, help, but there comes a time when the Disqus system continues to email me new comments on a page and there’s no way to stop it without stopping notification to all blogger pages.

      What’s wrong with a plugin, Matt?

  9. I’m new enough to the blogging world I haven’t really gotten to involved with the comments area. However, I would like to style my comments area to be a bit more unique, you know, something that doesn’t look like everybody else. Perhaps that’s my next little venture I can explore.

    For now I’m using wp thesis and haven’t had any complaints. Most of the time I like the Disqus comment options I deal with when leaving comments, but I know I would like the most styling control I can get.

    If you know where I can start looking for styling information, let me know. It would be much appreciated.

    • The THESIS support forums are a GREAT place to start – I learned how to do all of what you see here in the comments area through searching those forums and a little bit of trial and error. The reason I recommend THESIS to everyone is 1) for it’s simplicity and 2) because literally anything you can imagine that you’d want to customize can be learned through browsing and discussing in their forums. Generally, most folks are very willing to help or at least point you in the right direction. If you need any help, let me know.

  11. As a commenter and a moderator, I like the ability to reply. I like being able to simply type a response without getting all Twitter-y and typing @ before the person’s name. Also, with this, by replying to each person separately, it does (shameful admission of one reason I like it) double your comments count. Also, as a commenter, I like the ability to only subscribe to replies (Disqus does this right?) because while I enjoy convos online, there’s nothing more annoying than 15 daily emails for a post I commented on 10 days ago. Yes, I do unsubscribe, but since I’m a procrastinator and super busy saving the world and such (plus, you need thimble fingers to hit the “unsubscribe” option on an email viewed through an iPhone, unless you expand it, and that’s way too much work), it generally takes me between 7-10 days to remember to do so.

    • I had to go and check your blog again to see if you were talking about DISQUS or WordPress – WordPress does do most of what you mentioned – especially with Thesis (which is what we’re both using). You can style your comments – set up “threaded comments” – and reply to individual comments instead of doing the “@ reply” thing – which is what I’m doing as I type this to you right now.

      I do agree though, that I may be annoying my readers who subscribe to a post and then get 50+ emails from Life Without Pants of replies to that post. I can see that being pretty obnoxious. Hmm…something to think about for sure.

  13. I’m more of a Disqus practitioner on my blog and I’ve seen it used on more blogs as well. I like the interface and it encourages those who read blogs to be active and comment instead of simply reading/lurking. As you bring more readers to your site, it’s important to teach them not only to comment on your site, but on others as well.

    • Good list – and I do see the real benefit of it promoting some additional discussion by automatically notifying you of follow-up comments. That’s the one real selling point that’s making me wonder which way to go.

      That being said – WordPress has worked out well for me – and customization of this area is important (at least to me). Not to mention, having all of the comments ON MY DATABASE rather than hosted elsewhere is an advantage in my eyes.

      • Another FYI – even when using Disqus, all of your comments still end up in your WP database. On the couple of occasions (hasn’t happened in a few months) that Disqus was down, I could disable Disqus, and then all my comments existed from their WP version. When someone comments on my blog via Disqus, the comment is also stored in the WP database.

  15. I could see this argument going either way. I ultimately chose DISQUS because of the added features — for all the reasons you stated above. That said, I did have a little problem with it last week (the service was down for about an hour), and my comments all became unsorted when it automatically reverted back to the WordPress version. I think it ultimately comes down to what you’re looking for and either could work — If you want simplicity, go with WordPress. If you like features, go with DISQUS : )

    • I hear you – I know you had that minor glitch in the system last week – I’ve seen more and more people have these (minor) problems – which I guess has made me weary to hand all of this discussion over to a third party host. To each his own, but I guess for right now I’m not seeing any huge advantages to make the switch.

  17. In some cases the basic WP comments do not suffice. In our instance for certain pages I needed to be able to have multiple sets of comments that aren’t tied to the WP posts/pages in case I need to change architecture for those pages.

    In this case I had to go with JS-Kit instead of DISQUS or WP native. it has its issues but pulling in things from various social sites like twitter and FB automatically is nice. Also giving users the option to login with their profiles from FB or twitter or as a guest gives some flexibility.

    In the end the multiple comment streams on one page trumped the other issues I had with it.

    • I remember you mentioning JS-Kit before Dave. Do you have some examples of this in action? (I’m assuming you use this on the Zacuto site somewhere).

      P.S. We’ve got to get together and grab lunch soon – hope you’ve been doing well over in your neck of the woods.

      • Just let me know next time your around, we can definitely grab a bite.

        You can see JS-Kit working on this page http://www.zacuto.com/critics-season-one
        I am using a PHP tab in the template to seperate out each set of comments based on video. Some of the tabs hold 100+ comments. The other nice thing was that our main page for critics is http://www.zacuto.com/critics so when season one ended and I migrated the videos and comments to a different page it was pretty simple.

        Also they have a plugin that will keep the WP database comments in sync so if you turn it off your comments are still yours (plus export/import ability to their DB). Another nice feature is the ability to pull comment streams to different pages easily

  19. I tried adding Disqus, because I use it elsewhere and it has good features. But with my limited technical skills, could only add it in place of WordPress comments, not as an additional login option. So I would have lost old WP comments, people would have HAD to sign up for Disqus. IME nothing stymies action more than forcing someone to register; I’ve not commented on many a blog and magazine article for that reason. With threaded comments and the BackType plugin, WordPress comments are simple to use and get the job done. FWIW.

  21. I know you and I have discussed this on Twitter before, and I stand by the automatic emails for replies as the sole thing that’s keeping me with Disqus. However, now that I’ve made the move to Thesis, the possibility of changing the way the comments section looks may outweigh this little advantage that Thesis has. It’s all a matter of priorities on the part of the blogger, if ya ask me :)

  23. This is biased, but I love other startups in the same space as the one I work in. So Disqus, is not only a friend of Lijit’s, but we’ve met their team in person and worked with them. Plus, look at Giannii, all on point right in your comments.

    With that being said, I use Disqus on my blog (Blogger and now on WordPress). I have been a longtime user and many friends have asked me before they made the leap. I love the support Disqus offers. I’ve had so many questions and their support team has even e-mailed me on Saturday mornings. Can’t beat that, it’s personal.

    It’s also really hard for me to track comments (people who reply to me) or threaded discussions because I visit probably 200 blogs a day. Disqus brings you back. I also think they’ve helped with the aesthetics of the commenting system. There are different options and you can track all the comments in one place.

    In the end, functionality, support and e-mail notifications trump the sleek and simplicity of WP comments. I’ve been a happy Disqus over for a year now.

    • Sounds like a pretty glowing recommendation – and it’s testimonials like this that are making me consider taking the plunge. Customer service is HUGE for me – which is why, for example, I chose EMMA for my Email Marketing service. And it sounds like (and clearly is based on Giannii’s presence here), a priority of the company to please the people.

      The “gets people coming back” thing is what has me interested the most…

  25. From a personal standpoint, I keep any sort of plugin on my WP site to the minimum. Adding Disqus (or anything else) adds another function / call to a 3rd party service that I have no direct control over. So if their server goes down, so does my comments.

    As to Jackie’s comment about automatic email response, I personally DON’T want that, as I get entirely too many emails as it is. If it’s an interesting topic, I’ll check back. If it’s one that I really want to get involved with, I’ll subscribe (which most blogs offer).

    • Norcross,

      If our service was to go down whilst using WP, your comments will revert to your native WP comments. When Disqus comes back online, we’ll re-sync your comments.

    • Andrew, I’m thinking you should just develop a a plugin that notifies the commenter of any follow-ups or replies to their comment. That seems to be the big selling point in favor of DISQUS.

      But, there’s also a lot to be said for this being OPTIONAL. As you put, you may not want to receive any follow up e-mails. If people really want to keep track, they’ll click the checkbox to subscribe.

  27. The big advantage I admire of DISQUS is the ability to update my website/profile information across ALL blogs I’ve commented on (that use DISQUS) with a simple click. In this sense, using DISQUS helps unify blogs/comments across the web.

    I agree with Norcross though – you should keep all third-party scripts on your site to a minimum. Not only do they disappear when they’re down, but they slow down the loading of your site (and can keep your site hanging while it waits for the third-party script to load).

    • Yeah Andrew has been a big help to me in helping me clean things up around her ein my back end by limiting the number of Plugins. Today, the site is running smooth and fast, the less plugins, the better…

      • Another great advantage of DISQUS is email notifications when someone has responded to your comments. Unfortunately, I had to remember (randomly) to come back here to check out the continuing conversation.

      • Just to jump in, DISQUS does offer threaded comments…so I’m not sure what you mean about the lack of flexibility. The only “flexibility” issues I see at the moment are the lack of styling options, which Giannii has expressed will be addressed in a future update.

      • Response time, Giannii. As a long time user, and someone who you’ve helped on more than one occassion, you guys used to be STELLAR at help. Now, you want AT LEAST 48 hours to get an email, and when you reply with more help needed, you wait another 48 AT LEAST for a response to that. Meanwhile, you’re in limbo and there is NOTHING you can do when Disqus is broken for your website, other than feel held HOSTAGE. 

        I am so tired. Tired of waiting, tired of no answer, tired of being held hostage, tired of shedding actual tears because I don’t know what’s happened and this comment hijacking thing makes me look SO bad. 

        Someone, can someone, ANYONE help me? MY GOD. I just want an actual email that someone can/will check and respond to immediately, or a Skype convo, or ANYTHING.

  31. We talked about this briefly on twitter.
    I use IntenseDebate and love it.

    You can view comments under a post on my homepage simply by clicking there a small box appears and you can read and reply to all the comments without having to click through and scroll down. I find this is helpful for readers who come to my homepage, which is fairly common for my blog.

    I also like that people can sign in via twitter or create a login which allows them to comment easier.

    I also like that it nests comments, and commenters can choose to receive email updates on all comments on that post, their replies, or none.

    But the real question isn’t what I like, but what my readers like, and I’ve seen an uptick in comments since installing it by about 70%.

  33. I don’t use WordPress although I used to and I do use Disqus. I must say it’s rather tiresome having to enter my Name/email/URL credentials instead of automatically being logged into Disqus to leave this comment :-)

    Seriously, I am puzzled why WordPress acquired a competitor of Disqus – IntenseDebate – and appeared to have done precisely nothing in integrating this service with WP.

    I’m not suggesting they include it in core but what was the point of buying the technology ?

    How come not one person has even mentioned it as a possible alternative commenting method when you all run WP ?

    • I’m a little confused because a LOT of people here are using DISQUS and have advocated for it. As for logging in here – I agree it’s an extra “step” but I don’t believe it to be all that tiresome (I do it all the time on blogs everywhere). There are clearly pros and cons to both.

  35. i’m so glad you posted this! i was having a little back and forth with disqus/wordpress on my blog and wasn’t sure what to settle with! i used disqus for a good part of two weeks on my blog and then switched back to wp because a reader said he was having trouble commenting on his blackberry (with disqus). i figured wordpress was simpler/easier and i knew that some people think the logging in functions of disqus are annoying. plus i like their little monster gravatar :D

    i have noticed the trend of more disqus blogs and i was starting to really like it on my blog! but all in all, i felt it was better not to rely on a 3rd party also, because to me, it made me feel like i was more and more reliable to that party and it would be harder to switch back the longer i used it!

    • If it’s one thing I need to do it’s enable my blog to be more mobile friendly – I haven’t really focused on that and I’m probably missing the buck – but I have heard about issues with blackberry commenting and DISQUS.

  39. Hi Matt,

    My first time on your blog – came here by way of a search on Disqus. I recently began using it again (used it briefly last year) and I am enjoying it more now. It seems to be a hot topic lately!

    I have a post scheduled to come out on Friday this week as to why I’m using it on my blog but the main reason is that I actually have several blogs so its just so much easier for me to keep on top of comments when I only have ONE place to go.

    Anyway, I’m all for disqus. ;-) I hope you decide to use it. There are so many great features, it really does outweigh any negatives.

    Be blessed!

    • Hi Annie – thanks for coming by and WELCOME! Hope you’ll come back again and again. I look forward to reading your post – There are clearly pros and cons to both – I’m content with what I have going on for now, but am not opposed to making the switch at some point. Cheers!

  41. Kinda like Disqus for commenting but not sure just yet what to use on my upcoming blogs. I dont like the idea of building up a following with a lot of comments and having them totally hostage to a 3rd party, or am I not understanding something? If Disqus goes busto for any reason, will all the comments still be available to me via my WP database? Thanks

    ps. thanks for starting this discussion

  52. Matt – I referred back to this post just today and it's been really helpful in forming an agency POV on blog commenting. Much appreciated, as always.

    So your opinion's still the same, I take it? :)

  53. Hey Sara.

    I'm not sure. I really sway back and forth. The primary “pro” I see for DISQUS is that it encourages conversation. It's automatic notification and Social Media integration is focused on enriching back and forth discussion.

    But, it IS a third party service – it IS another plug in to install – I HAVE been seeing a lot of spam passing through their filters lately – And it DOES go down from time to time, which essentially closes down comments completely during downtime. Also, it's not as customizable from a design standpoint.

    I think it ultimately depends on your goals. Pushing for conversation? DISQUS' pros outweigh the cons. Looking for simplicity and customization options? Go with standard WordPress.

    Let me know if I can answer any questions for you, Sara. :)

  55. Tried Disqus today but reverted back to old school because of issues. I’m settling for simplicity for now. Although, I like the potential of Disqus for the reasons you have also stated.

  56. It does come down to, who owns the comments, who wants them under their control. With Disqus, users feel like their comments are under their control, they can delete them via Disqus. With any internal commenting system like WP discussions, the blog owner has all the control.

    So I see that USERS love Disqus, but BLOGS are afraid of not having control over the comments.

  57. really like the site! Terrific content, and also wonderful sentence structure. I am just getting sick and tired with browsing blogs and forums and also websites that appear like they are written by third graders. Do you have a Twitter? My own is @dmastylo, why don’t we follow one another!

  58. WordPress, definitely, but I’m using my Disqus profile to comment here, because that is what it insisted on using. I will delete my Disqus profile once I’m done here. I found this post out of a desperate search for a way to unsubscribe from Disqus comments. There is no unsubscribe link in the e-mailed comments. The unsubscribe buttons don’t work on the posts where I commented and wanted to follow comments. The comments don’t show up anywhere in my Disqus profile so that I can untick them. So there is no way for me to unsubscribe. I simply hit “report spam” in gmail each time a comment comes in, and now very few make it through the spam filter.

  59. I use Disqus because I like the use and feel of it. One thing I don’t like is that people are able to see your previous comments on other sites. There might be away to disable that option but I haven’t taken the time to look for it.

  61. I’m trying Disqus for my new blog. I like the look and feel of Disqus. What I don’t like? That it takes a little while to load…Not convenient.

  62. Disqus has some awesome features, unfortunately, it does not create user accounts on my site which I need for other purposes (submission of content mainly). But on other sites, I can see its practicality.

  63. I’ve been using WordPress commenting for the past 2 years with no complaints, but after reading the comments looks like I might give DISQUS a try next week on my tester site.

  64. WordPress does such a good job of handling comments (and Akismet plug-in does so well at handling the spam comments), that I don’t feel compelled to use DISQUS. I don’t think its presence encourages or discourages comments.

  65. I’m pretty new to the blogging scene, but not to technology. One thing that should be noted (and perhaps it has further down the thread), is that both Disqus and Intense Debate sync comments with your Word Press database (or *should* be doing so at least). So, if you ever decide to switch between the two or ditch third parties entirely and go back to WP, your comments stay intact.

    The only thing I ‘ve noticed (using Disqus) is that the user accounts are not synced. So I, for example, may show up as “DC” in this Disqus post, but if you were to check your WP admin console, you’d likely see me listed as “unkown” or “anonymous”.

    I’m personally using Disqus at the moment, but often consider going back to plain old WP, simply to shed the extra javascript. As far as custimizing goes, you can hack any of these up all you want if you are comfortable with hacking some CSS. But… it’s just the comment section. As long as it’s close, does it really need to be perfect? I think this is one part of a blog where usability is more important than looks.

  66. I was disappointed to find that I have to have a self-hosted WP blog to have Disqus comments. :( Oh well, it’s not like my blogs ever rack up enough comments to warrant threaded commenting or moderation.

  67. Hi there,

    Because of your post I decided to tryout Disqus. I can’t, however, get my comment box setup the way I see yours. The optional comment links, where you allow your readers to login through Facebook, Open ID, etc, did that come with Disqus or did you use additional plugins? Please let me know.

    Thanks!

  69. Personally, I find it mildly ironic that this blog uses Disqus now. Just mildly. LOL – Found it via Google when looking for recommendations on whether or not to use it. I use it on my blog, and apparently, you do, too! Plus, I’m going to recommend your blog to my readers. I like it!

  70. nI must express my respect for your generosity giving support to people who require help on that topic. Your very own dedication to getting the solution throughout came to be extremely beneficial and has specifically helped workers like me to reach their pursuits. Your amazing valuable report means so much a person like me and even further to my colleagues. Regards; from all of us.

I think that you could do with a few pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is magnificent blog. A great read. I will definitely be back.http://www.ptdoors.co.il/

  75. Personally WP comments drive me crazy. I don’t have a WP blog myself, but whenever I’m commenting on them, it’s so irritating to me that I have to confirm that I want to receive comment replies. Like, don’t bug me unless I actually have a reply please. That alone has caused me to not subscribe to replies anymore on those blogs, which is unfortunate because I do like having a conversation with people. nnI love disqus for the most part and I do use it on my blog. I like being able to reply to a comment straight from my email. The only irritating part is that guest users aren’t automatically notified of my replies so I usually Cc them in my email. That’s a bit awkward and I wish disqus would just email all users their reply notifications, not just the registered ones. Other than that, I thunk disqus is very easy to use. Much better than any native c

    • Ooh. It cut me off. Lol. Just going to say that I do like disqus as a blogger better than any native system I’ve used. And I love that if I ever choose to switch blog platforms, you can also move all your comments with you. That’s not something you can do with native comments, I don’t think.

  76. I like that Disqus now syncs with self-hosted WordPress.org comment databases, so if it disappears you still have all your comment. Do they sync with WP.com comments, as well?

  77. Good to become browsing your weblog once more, it has been months for me. Well this article that i’ve been waited for so lengthy. I need this post to total my assignment inside the university, and it has exact same subject together with your post. Thanks, excellent share.

  79. Hello friend!!
    I read this nice article & glad to read it.After finding your disqus hack, I started reading your blog. I added it to my RSS collection. It is an amazing find because I am interested in your field of work (IT). I am by no means pro, but I’m learning while trying to get my foot in the door.

  80. Nice blog.I have just bookmarked this page so I don’t miss any more of these.I am glad I found this article because i am surfing for something like this.Keep it up.

  81. So… you switched to Disqus after stating in this blog that you liked WordPress better.  Obviously something happened in the last two years.  What led you to make the switch?

  82. I know this is an old post but still a valid discussion.  For my new WordPress site (moving current site later this week) I kinda don’t want to be bothered with installing Disqus BUT as a commenter myself, I absolutely love that I can edit my comments or even re-discover old discussions (as I did earlier today when I logged into Disqus to modify my profile).

    • Absolutely.  Many times I’ll find a blog and want to comment on the topic but if there’s no Disqus option, I’m not bothering to sign up another way or even post anonymously.  I like that all my comments are tucked safely under one umbrella so even if I forget what I said somewhere, it’s just a matter of pulling up my Disqus profile.  I’ve actually decided today that I will indeed be installing Disqus on my WP blog.

  85. Wow!
    This is a really excellent read for me, should admit that you are one of the best bloggers I ever saw. Thank you for posting this informative post Stone Brewery Visit. Keep up the nice work, I have added you to my blogroll.

    • I think what’s most attractive about Disqus is the portability. I will frequently forego commenting on a blog if Disqus is not used because I’m so used to the benefits. If I’m ever doing housekeeping, I can log into Disqus see every comment I’ve ever made on a certain blog or on certain subjects and remove, modify or even copy and paste them if I want to. Once I got used to being able to see all my comments in one place, the argument against Disqus didn’t even exist for me. I also like that I can check the profiles of the people responding to topics I’m interested in and see what other discussions I might want to jump into!

  86.  Both have their advantages, such as Disqus allows you to maintain your comments, such as deleting posts your may regret. While WordPress identifies you by your email address and avoids having you login every time your want to make a quick post.

  87. As a developer, i hate in my sites. So I opt to not using disquss. It’s just a comment after all. What Disquss offers, it can be develop and add it to your native wp comment system …

  88. I have disqus now, switched from WP thread and it seems less people are commenting. I think I will switch back . Thanks.

  89. I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is something too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something regarding this.

  90. An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto a colleague who was doing a little
    research on this. And he in fact ordered
    me breakfast simply because I stumbled upon it for
    him… lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thanks for the
    meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending time to talk about this issue here on your web site.

  91. I’m just getting restarted with blogging and really looking to find which is better. I like that disqus allows me to respond to comments around the web but I am a bit nervous about SPam. Ay thoughts?

  92. Usually I do not read article on blogs, however I wish to say that this write-up very compelled me
    to try and do so! Your writing style has been amazed me.
    Thanks, quite great post.

  93. I am a fan of Disque because i really like the new features they have to offer and especially the income generating feature it has. all in all people stick to what works best for them.

  94. I think disqus is better than wordpress comment system.

    Reasons:

    1. Spam free.
    2. More traffic and discussions.
    3. Get more disqus ad income!

  95. I tend to not comment on blogs that require a Disqus log-in or Facebook for that matter. Not sure if Disqus really causes people to comment more. In my opinion it just causes less comments due to lack of simplicity. And I really don’t want to share my FB friends list with a commenting system just so that I can comment with my name and website. ;)

  96. What do I think? I think that Disqus is a useless piece of junk that doesn’t do what it advertises. I have been on innumerable sites that used disqus where you can’t log in EVER to the application to actually post. You hit log in and you get a popup but it never actually logs you in.

    Useless unless what you are trying to do is annoy every user you have.

  97. Do you mind if I quote a few of your posts as long as I provide credit and sources back to your blog?
    My blog is in the exact same area of interest as
    yours and my users would truly benefit from some of the
    information you provide here. Please let me know
    if this ok with you. Cheers!
