Trying Disqus for Comments on TinyScreenfuls.com

I’m going through a phase. I have a bunch of stuff I want to experiment with, so of course, here on TinyScreenfuls.com is where I’m going to do it.

I had recently added Facebook Comments and “Like” buttons to my posts, but I didn’t like how fragmented it made everything look (one of the things on my list is a theme makeover that goes way back over on the side of simplicity and elegance). So I’m giving Disqus a try for comments.

If you’ve never heard of Disqus, I bet you’ve seen it. It’s a centralized comment system that lets you log in with your Facebook, Twitter, or other account (it supports a bunch of different logins) or no account at all. I like how it lets me track my comments across various sites (like RWW, people’s blogs, etc.), and I also really like how it nicely integrates stuff like “likes” and other sharing options right into the comment form. And it works with the WPTouch mobile theme I’m using, the 500 or so of you per month who come here on an iPhone will get to use it, too.

Do me a favor and help me try it out? Post a comment, like, and otherwise exercise what you see down below in the comments area, and let me know what you think, or if anything breaks. Thanks! :-)

    • Seeing Disqus on RWW (although I’ve known about it forever, and even dabbled with it here once before) is the main reason I’m trying it. But as with most things I do here, it’s an experiment. I might try Intense Debate next, and if Facebook ever offers a full-fledged comment system, that lets me sync comments to my local WP database (like Disqus does), I’ll probably try that, too. :-)

    There’s a wild badger under my desk.. I’m afraid if I move to quickly I’ll startle it and it will bite my calf. On the other hand I think I should get out of here as fast as I can before he realizes I have badger chow in my back pocket.
