Blogmaster Los posted this last week and got me all excited about a new way to connect & follow each other around the blog world via Disqus. Great idea – so I installed it and quickly noticed a couple things:
- It killed my CommentLuv plugin, which is possibly my favorite plugin (for those who don’t know, it finds your latest blog post and puts a link to it under your comment – I click those a lot).
- It took over the WordPress control of my comments. This means that I don’t see the comments in my admin section any longer, and the ‘Recent Comments’ widget is not longer working.
To both of those I say “poo”. I’m not sure how much longer I will leave Disqus up on my blog. But I thought I’d see what you thought.
- Disqus? which hijacked my blog, but is an amazing tool to connect us more.
- Or CommentLuv? which doesn’t have nearly the depth of Disqus, but leaves my blog alone.
Thoughts? (does my graphic make the choice too obvious?)
