  • Intensedebate (free comments script)

    Has anybody seen this new comments tool called: Intensedebate

    I saw it being used on a very popular workpress site. And decided to take a look at it. I've just installed it on my Aquarium Fish website and it very good.

    Just thought people should check it out here.

    I do. Awesome system. Especially if you have wordpress.

    It was recently purchased by the same company that created Wordpress.

      It's also great if you use Twitter, as it can automatically submit all comments you post on your own site to twitter also at the same time. Great for boosting your site and highlighting certain pages on it via Twitter. And all done automatically for you too. It's a great comment system for site promotion as a whole with other tools it uses also.

      It's been a blessing for me, because my Aquarium Fish website, is hosted on a different server host than my mrGTB site. And the server doesn't allow PHP to be included in HTML pages, like my mrGTB server host does. So I was unable to use the same PHP based comment script on Aquarium Fish that I use on mrGTB.

      So this "Intensedebate" comment system that uses javascript to add it, has been a real find for me. To be able to now add a comment system to Aquarium Fish (finally). And a good one at that! Plus it goes to show, that you can run a simple HTML based website, and still be able to add a great comment system for free to it.

      I was watching their WordPress video intergration movie, looks very well intergrated from what I saw.

        Wow I was going to throw an "I make my own comments systems har har" but this script looks very nice indeed I might actually use it instead of my home made one, thanks

        Of course first it needs to integrate to my own user system, etc etc etc. And this is just a first impression, I have to test it more

          Well it looks good and all, but it uses it's own users database and it's a hosted solution (which isn't bad actually).

          The real problem is it's only English right now, but I'm sure it will evolve in the coming months. It's something to follow.

            I hear Wordpress have bought it, not sure how much truth is in that

              Auttomatic (creators of Wordpress) bought them last year.


              Some of the features in Intense Debate are already present in Wordpress 2.7.0 and the application.

                I've also read with WordPress, that the comments are injected back into the WordPress page itself, and are not just stored in their Intensedebate comments database.

                Which unfortunately, is the case with Website integration. The comments don't show-up in the web-page source code, which means no new content gets added to the web-page for Google to come back, index, and update your web-pages with more content for people to find your pages better as more comments are added.
