Just a very quick post, one of which is commonly posted on the support site, however seeing as this update effects all users (who comment). I was even polite enough to post on day which I normally wouldn’t, so you do not lose a post to some tech talk!
I’ve introduced a new comment system today called “Livefyre”, I was reluctant to it at first but after hearing multiple strong reviews about it I decided to check it out myself. Unfortunately, for some I do not think this comment system supports “anonymous” commenting, however that been said it does also help to clamp down on spammers.
Livefyre supports multiple logins such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, LinkedIn or OpenID. There are also some strong features such as tagging your Facebook and Twitter friends and sending the comment back to one or more of the services simultaneously – which is an imrpovement to the old system.
The comments made by the previous system have been transported across to the new system, however avatars have been lost for those who signed in via Facebook and Twitter previously. You’ll also be happy to hear the Livefyre has support for mobile devices, so you can continue the conversation on your phone too!
More information about Livefyre can be found on their website. You can use this post to test out the new comment system and perhaps take part in the poll too, letting me know what you think to the new comment system.
