Disqus Be Gone: Changes to Comment Systemon June 15, 2012 at 2:44 pm
We’ve been using the Disqus comment system since Day 1 on shadowbinders.com.
Now we are not.
Why? Disqus has become bloated and unwieldy, and hasn’t been playing nice with the site lately. There’s also been some concern about hosting all of our comments ever via a third-party service.
So we’re switching to the traditional WordPress comment system, with a few extra plugins to make it a little more “Disqus-like.” These include the ability to log in via Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo and Google as well as the ability to upvote comments.
Now, don’t worry — I’ve imported all of the previous Disqus comments into WordPress. We didn’t lose anything in the move.
Alrighty, well, comments are back up — feel free to jump in!
