    Just curious, is your blog on WordPress? Is that why you are able to use CommentLuv? I love this commenting system that you are currently using on your blog, unfortunately I am not with WordPress as yet. I’m looking to move over but I’m trying to find someone that can move me over for a minimal fee and plus be able to move my design over too.

    Ok on to your questions:-

    1. I don’t get turned off if I go on a blog and they use Disqus, I don’t get turned off no matter what they use, I just don’t want to be constantly logging or creating new ID’s just to comment on one blog.

    2. The reason why I’m wanting to ditch the Blogger default system is because I am unable to get the threaded comments to work on my blog design. I’ve tried to get help from Blogger for ages and have yet to receive ONE reply. It seems my blog design is stopping the threaded comments to work, but I can’t seem to get any help from anyone to get it working so I’m now seeking alternatives.

    At the moment I’m using Disqus but I may move to another alternative if I find a better option.

      Hi Angelica,

      The blog was once powered by Blogger and we used Disqus, but since we moved to WordPress some few days ago, we decided to stick with the default WordPress comment system.

      To enable threaded comment on your blog? Try this article but make sure you back up your template.

      If you want to moved to WordPress you can contact me using the contact form but I can’t guarantee that the fee would be minimal neither can I retain your Blogger design.

      Thanks for visiting

    Disqus is completely worthless for my needs. For starters, they do not allow you to refer to links in comments. Though their intention is clearly to prevent spammers, you are unable to cite ANY links at all. They always claim the posts are “awaiting moderation,” but they always just end up getting deleted. In addition, if you attempt to cite studies and other references, they delete those posts as well! So, it is not possible to engage in anything more than opinionated blathering, because their system makes it impossible to back any claims with authoritative sources.

    Looking at a CMS is very significant I now only use Drupal. Because As I researched and found out the most well known .edu sites such as Arizona State and Stanford use Durpal, it’s a no brainer For hosting I use Pantheon with options to build against their stack What solution did you chose?

    I want to know how the Disqus for money making works? Heard that they pay the publishers. Please throw your views on that.

    I have Disqus installed on one of my sites — and it definitely improved the conversations people were having.

    But the main reason I like it is for commenting on other blogs. It’s like a social network that’s added to the blogosphere. It’s one of the best ways to find new blogs to read and comment on. And it’s a great way of keeping your comments together. So you can look through what you’ve written and use the content as raw material for blog posts, etc.

      Hello Matt,

      You said it all, that’s one place Disqus wins and for me its better than any default commenting system.

      I have really played with Disqus, stopped their service for 3-months and it was hard keeping track of other blogs. Disqus make the interaction with other blogs effective and it happens effortlessly.

      Thanks for stopping by and do have a nice day.

    I have commented regularly on a number of blogs & webcomics that I visit that use Disqus & I have installed Disqus on a new blog I started up a few days ago. I like the look & feel of it. Hope I have a hassle free experience with it as those I know with it have. I tried just a while ago deactivating the plugin then checked my comments & all the comments had successfully synced back to my blog’s native comment system. Seems all good so far.

      Hi Nosa, my initial reservations were that there is no Guest Commenter url field so if a guest commenter leaves a comment I have no way to know where their blog is so I can repay the visit. I have commented in the past on Disqus reviews that that was a downside for me. However many reviews, like yours, have highlighted just how good Disqus really is so I’ve decided to overlook the guest url issue. I’ve decided to write a post about how to use Disqus to leave a comment & will advise Guest Commenters to leave their url in the comment post body if they wish to do so. Have a good weekend

    I am not a fan of disqus. I don’t like that you have to register with disqus and set up a password. I think it discourages comments.

    I am not a fan of disqus. I don’t like that you have to sign-up with disqus and set up a security password. I think it attempts feedback.

    This is a great article. The good thing for disqus is you can place your comments above or below your posts.
