Just a little notice to say that i have enabled Disqus on my blog. It’s a pretty clever tool that links up comments on blogs all over the Internet. When you hover over the picture of somebody who has commented on my blog, you also see some of the comments they have left on other blogs. You might also see their Twitter status, or get a link to their Flickr account, their Delicious account, their Facebook.
Here’s an example of how it can look:
It’s a really neat way of bringing the web closer together. For me it’s also a great advantage in that it immediately gave me nested comments and the ability to send email replies to people who have commented. I thought i was going to have to make some fairly hefty changes to my WordPress theme in order to enable nested comments, but it turns out Disqus can just do it all for me!
Oh yes, you also get to rate other people’s comments up or down, youtube-stylee! ;)
Disqus is particularly good in that it works across multiple blogging platforms. So i installed the WordPress plugin, but there are also plugins for Blogger, Moveable Type, Tumblr and more. Wouldn’t it be great if LiveJournal would take it up? :)
Thank you to ChrisMDP for finding Disqus and telling me about it! :)
