I changed my comment system because it time for an update to reflect the changes that are on cyberspace. Having a system which requires folks to use Capta is outdated in my opinion and it prevents me from leaving comments on other blogs. What I love about Disqus is the ability to login with my facebook, twitter, openid, etc account information without registering on the blog. No personal information is saved on my blog or any blog for the matter and I don’t have to register any personal account information on any blog. I love the easy login ID across any blog that has the Disqus plugin installed…love love it! Great WordPress Plugin.
A comment system which deserves mention is Commentluv. I have comment on WordPress blogs that have it installed on their blog and found it to be very cool. Plugin to show a link to the last post from the commenters blog by parsing the feed at their given URL when they leave a comment. Rewards your readers and encourage more comments.
Tip: If any blog is inaudated with unnecessary comment spam..the blog need to install the Askimet plugin for WordPress ASAP. I can’t tell you how many blogs I visit from time to time and read comments unrelated to the content. I personally don’t understand why there is not a spam comment in place with most of the blogs on the Internet. Most of the blog owners do not comment to folks who leave responses and the conversation is typically with the commentors who left the comments. All I know is if I had to filter a comment from the spam it drive me nuts and I am sure my readers wouldn’t be happy with a blog filled with comment spam..bad on the eyes! The best part about Askimet is that it will block out all the comment spam while leaving the real comments so you can actually engage in conversations with your readers without having to sort through dozens if not hundreds of spam comments and trackbacks.
There are a lot of bloggers and allegely WordPress experts on the Internet who may beg to differ with my choice of comment WordPress plugins, however, at this moment the plugins listed in this blog post are the best one for thephotographer4you. I could not imagine clicking through 40K plus comments over the past year….I would get bored with blogging. It getting boring sometimes talking to yourself but can you imagine getting inaudated with comment spam on your blog? No neither can I….gag me with a real comment that I can respond to or don’t comment at all!
