Change on the comment system

Read in 1 min.

I changed the blog comment system. Now powered by IntenseDebate.

Disqus was giving a lot of headaches. The comments were appearing on all the pages, mixed comments between articles, and they were supposed to be separated by article.

Installing

It just took 2 minutes to test the new commenting site, less than writing this article, and it works great.

Here is the code on the Pelican template to show or hide the comments.

{% if INTENSEDEBATE_ACCOUNT %}
<script>
var idcomments_acct = '{{INTENSEDEBATE_ACCOUNT}}';
var idcomments_post_id = '{{ article.slug }}';
var idcomments_post_url;
</script>
<span id="IDCommentsPostTitle" style="display:none"></span>
<script type='text/javascript' src='http://www.intensedebate.com/js/genericCommentWrapperV2.js'></script>
{% endif %}

Conclusion

We have lost the previous comments, but we won a new commenting system that really works.

Keep commenting all the articles!!!

Not bad
