You win, spammers


Hey, comment spammers! I hate you so much. You win.

I’ve moved comments for neon epiphany over to Disqus, even though it’s not officially supported for Movable Type 5 (But what is? Seriously) and took a lot of ugly hackery to get working. On the net upside, though, there should be plenty of sexy new features, and hopefully less spam. If you get a chance, please do try posting a comment, just to make sure everything’s still working. Also you should now get notifications when your comment is responded to.

If you’re using Disqus and MT5 and are having problems (particularly when trying to enable server-side rendering), I’ve put the contents of my mt/plugins/disqus folder as a gzipped tarball. Maybe it’ll help you out.

LET ME ITERATE: I do not know from perl. This is ham-hands.

Finally, I just watched “A Scandal in Belgravia,” the first episode of the new series of the BBC’s Sherlock. Hello, Irene Adler. LOVE. And umm, riffing on “The Hound of the Baskervilles” next Sunday? Be still my heart!

    I installed disqus on my MT5, and it seems worked, but i tried to comment and found the comments are only stored in disqus and are not syncing to the MT admin backend. Have you ever happened to see this problem? I didn't check "Disable comment syncing" at the backend.

    Testing the comments. 

  • Glad to have you as part of the community! Note that we're currently testing a new Movable Type plugin, so keep an eye out for that in the near future.

    If you have any questions feel free to get ahold of me or anyone else @disqus:twitter 

  • Ryan - thanks! Looking forward to the new plugin. Right now I have everything working but it did take awhile to get here.

  • Just want to say between eden's leaf fleuron, and ryan's crustacean fleuron, I think we have a delicious meal in the making.

  • Welcome to Disqus! I've been using it for a while and I love it.

  • Yay! And wow, it totally @ replied me on Twitter too. So cool!
