I have switched the blog comments system from the basic WordPress system to Disqus. If you have left comments on previous posts, they are still there and the comment system is the same. The Disqus system will affect all prior posts that did not have comments as well as all of my future posts from now on.
Using Disqus allows you to comment on many different blogs without having to re-enter your contact information every time.
I hope that you will find the switch to be an improvement. Here are some of the benefits you will see:
- Threaded comments that make it easy to reply to other comments.
- Integration of video comments.
- Ability to rate the comments of other readers.
Let me know what you think of the new system, and please comment on some posts so we can get a feel for how it will work.
