Update on Web-Work At Home commenting system

Update on Web-Work At Home commenting system, I am now using Intense Debate plugin for my blog. I have found that there are just too many issues with my previous commenting system. Intense debate is an excellent system which integrates seamlessly with WordPress. You can easily comment whether you are signed up to Intense Debate or not. If you have any problems in leaving comments or you have some feedback then please drop me an email or leave a message on one of my services.

Issues with Disqus

This is the Disqus commenting system at work, I just recieved this comment reply by email from another Disqus member who replied to my comment, so I thought I would post it from the Disqus admin. It seems to work okay and its a great way to extend the thread. I will still hold off until I can resolve the missing comments issues. Hi there, First of all Thanks for including my link in your Zementa list, I have decided to put the Disqus system on hold, primarily because of the loss of my comments. I can only assume that there is a clash with one of my other plugins, any how I have a pretty good setup for my comments and as the old saying goes if it aint broke don't fix it. The programmer over at Disqus gave me the usual first option and ran me through the import option which i already did, I guess the only way to narrow it down is to disable all 40 plus plugins to find the culprit.

Changing over to Disqus Comment System

But because I use the social networks quite a lot in my business I thought it prudent to bring these networks onto Web-Work At Home. The networks that integrate with Disqus are FaceBook, FriendFeed, Twitter, Delicious all of which I use, also included are Flickr, Linkedin and Tumblr which I don't use at the moment.

G-Lock Double Opt In for your Blog Newsletter

So it was a pleasant surprise when I came across the G-Lock Double Opt-In Manager plugin which you can see on my sidebar. Although early days yet the plugin is behaving and is working just fine, it does a great job of organizing your list from the convenience of your WordPress admin. Of course as the plugin name suggests it handles your subscribers by using the widely used double opt-in protocol, which in turn gives your subscriber peace of mind. The only negative I would draw your attention to, is initially setting up your mail delivery settings in the general settings tab. You have two choices; either use the default mail setting or use the custom SMTP setting, after a little confusion I opted for the default setting. Continue reading
