Giving Disqus Another Shot
You will notice that I am giving the Disqus commenting platform another try. I’ve been using Disqus over at the Atlantic and I have not had any problems. In the past the biggest drawback was the speed with which comments loaded, but that does not seem to be any longer an issue. The interface has also been streamlined, which I like a lot. I recommend playing around a bit by leaving a comment or two on this post.
Some of you will notice that I removed the Recent Comments feature from the sidebar. The standard WordPress widget is not compatible and Disqus no longer supports their own, which I do not understand. I am looking into possible solutions, but for now I recommend subscribing to the comments for those posts that are of interest. You can subscribe via feed or email, which you will find at the end of the thread. Of course, I will monitor things from my end, but let me know if there are any problems and/or if this is going to seriously hamper your Civil War memory experience.
