Now Using Jetpack Comments

When I relaunched on a new WordPress theme, I began using the Jetpack plugin for commenting. This plugin is operated by Automattic, the company that owns WordPress. I use several Jetpack features, but the one that is most noticeable to readers is the comment section.

Jetpack allows readers to easily comment, just as they had before. There is once again a subscribe to comments feature, allowing people to receive email notifications when other comments are made on a blog post. This is helpful in keeping a conversation going, especially if people comment over a longer period of time.

I appreciate it when people share their thoughts, insights, advice, criticism…etc in response to articles. I think it helps me learn and is helpful in providing new ideas. Hopefully the Jetpack plugin will foster good discussion now and in the future.

I am curious if readers have any comments about the new comment plugin. I want to make sure it is working for you. If you don’t like it, I would be interested in knowing why. Feel free to test it out and let me know what you think.

  1. It seems pretty normal.

    Note: I stopped receiving email notifications about subscribed thread on all the major domain blogs I frequent, which are this, DNW, TheD, and OD. Only a tiny number have arrived in the last few years since it all just stopped. This name and email I use also have an account and login with WP. If anyone has any idea why this would be so and how to correct it, all ears.

      • It encourages quick sign ins because a lot of people cannot remember their passwords and most everyone has a google account. Same goes for the facebook login but I am very leery of that one.
