Earlier today I installed the DISQUS comment system on Stargazer’s World. At the same time I disabled the Janrain Engage plugin which allowed users to sign in using various social media services. The Janrain plugin has caused several issues lately and to add insult to injury it lost its setting almost regularly so I had to fix it much too often. The latest update of the plugin also forced me to open site registrations again which has lead to the creation of endless accounts by spammers.

The DISQUS plugin will add some new features to the comment system and will hopefully make it easier for you to read and write comments. If you encounter any issues with the new system, please let me know!

UPDATE: One thing I’ve noticed is that the widget in the sidebar to the right shows pretty ancient comments as recent. I am pretty sure this was caused by the import process and will remedy itself as soon as new comments are coming in.

    1. And DISQUS allows me to easily moderate comments on my iPhone. The WordPress app allows this, too, but is a bit more clunky.

  1. I've been using Disqus for a while. I started using it because it was the one that worked with Drupal and I kept using it onto WordPress because it allowed me to import my old comments. Installing it here saves me from having to do a Captcha so I'm most appreciative.
