New Plugin – IntenseDebate
As a fan of threaded comments, I decided to try out a new plugin – IntenseDebate. This plugin allows for threaded comments, reply by email, commenter profiles and reputation points (though I may need to be sold on the value of this last one). As with all WordPress plugins, the install is a matter of unzipping the file to your plugin folder and then activating it in the plugin section of the dashboard.
The plugin supports WordPress (duh!), Blogger, TypePad and Tmblr with more to come.
UPDATE – I have disabled the plugin. Indexing the comments was taking too long, Commentluv and KeywordLuv were inactive and it was too much trouble. This is not to say that there is anything wrong with the plugin – if I had started with IntenseDebate from the beginning, there would not have been any issues, but the wait was just too great. Don’t let me put you off it – if I were to start a second blog, I would definitely install it.
