Commenting FYI

I’ve been playing with commenting widgets and as an unexpected result everyone appears to be flagged as a first time commentor to be held for moderation again. I’m still playing with things over the next few days, so other random things may happen to the website.


  1. Ah, so that’s what it was!

    FTR, the blog loads a bit more slowly for me now, though it’s quite possible that the problem is at my end and not yours. But sometimes different plugins can slow down your blog. I have several WordPress blogs and I’ve probably been through all the same crap. As they say, it gets better.

  3. Just noticed the Twitter button (you probably just added that)… Are you on twitter, Athol?

    Not yet, but probably soon.

  4. I’ve played with them all too, and I highly recommend Disqus based on my experiences.

    Speaking of comments… Is there a way to make the blog comments available via an RSS feed as well? I’ve seen other blog sites handle it this way. Unfortunately WebSense (or whatever web filtering software that my company is using) has MMSL classified as porn. While I would say it’s not appropriate for “all audiences”, I would hardly classify MMSL as porn

  8. Is there a way to get rid of the BIG “<>” buttons that float in the middle of the pages now ? Very distracting.
