DISQUS Comment System

It’s not that the WordPress comment system has anything entirely lacking for a basic site, but that the DISQUS comment system adds much more.

It’s a community across the web, with real-time discussion, social sharing (and tagging) with single sign-on, and easy moderation. Remember those spam comments/notifications from the default WordPress system? Yup, that’s why we went looking.

Spam comments tend to overwhelm the Comments section of a WordPress site. Without Akismet, a paid service, these can build up quickly.

DISQUS is not alone out in the world of Comment Systems. As always, a healthy review of LiveFyreIntenseDebate (by Automattic), Echo and even Janrain are worth your while.

DISQUS is a networked platform connecting millions of people across thousands of communities. In their words it’s

“Beautiful, real-time, engaging discussions for your website.”
