We've added support for Disqus comments for blog posts, bringing back commenting on blog posts. We had comments on our old ynui.co.nz blog a long time ago, but it became difficult to manage comment spam and we had to disable comments for a while.
I had always intended to bring back support for comments by writing a better spam filter, but it's just so much easier to use Disqus now. The great thing about Disqus is you can log in using either your Gmail or Facebook account which makes it easy for visitors to comment.
We are not quite done yet however, and this is a bit of a warning... I plan to make some changes to the blog which will change the URL of each post, I know this is normally a bad thing to do, especially for search engines, but it's really important and needs to be done in order to develop a new feature.
The way Disqus seems to work, is it links the comments to the URL of a page, so I am afraid that when the URL for each post changes, we will lose the comments from before. I am not sure how Disqus deals with this, but I have a suspicion we just end up losing the older comments when I change the URL for each post.
Because we have only just enabled Disqus and moved the blog over to wainuiomata.com, it's best to do this sooner than later, when there are almost no comments and the loss is not so bad. So I plan to get this done this week if possible.
We will keep you informed about any new developments to the site.
