Comments: Moving away from Disqus

I’ve recently switched the comment system from Disqus over to Jetpack. It should be less intrusive and friendlier (I hope!). However, in the move, I lost some comments.

For example, there was a great comment on my string index post from Alastair Houghton. When I went to search for it last night, it wasn’t there:

This screenshot at the top of this post is from the Disqus moderation console, which is where I eventually found it.

So my apologies to Alastair and anyone else whose comments got nuked in the transfer.




  • Why did you chose to ditch Disqus? I’m using it myself, so I’m naturally interested in concerns and arguments 🙂

    • Got a bunch of complaints from people who didn’t want to sign up for accounts
