Get to the Point: simple addition to wordpress, simple import of comments, live and working like I wanted in 10 minutes, pages are slower to load now. If I notice the speed more I might revert to normal comments.
Installing IntenseDebate comment system on my WordPress blogâ€¦. what will happen?
Will it be painless? Will it import my old comments? Will I be locked into intense debate?
Here is how it went:
Went to my plugins page and clicked â€œadd newâ€ searched for intense debateâ€¦ clicked installâ€¦.. then once installed I went to the wordpress settings to tweak the intensedebate settingsâ€¦. the first thing was to insert my username and pass.. .no problems yetâ€¦ next it wanted to import my comments ( cool I guess this means everything will be like before only better! ? ) â€¦ then it sat on this screen for a long timeâ€¦ over 10 minutes so farâ€¦
Why were the first 100 comments so fast and the others so slow? hmmmâ€¦ waiting it outâ€¦enjoy the view of this random hot surf chick for the moment â€¦
OK! â€¦. nothing was happening so I opened another tab in my browser and went to the intense debate settings again and it gave me this success message:
Success! IntenseDebate is now fully activated on your blog. Â» View blog
Here it all is in action:
I wonder which is faster to load: Disqus or Intense Debate? Googling for it now..
