Firwat keng intensiv Debatt?

Et ass en neit Kand um Block op der Kommentarsäit vum Geschäft, Intens Debatt. D'Viraussetzung vum Service ass aussergewéinlech - liwwert en zentrale Repository fir d'Kommentarer vun Äre Besucher ze verfolgen, de Kommentar iwwer Äre Blog auszebauen, a bitt eng ganz räich Interface fir d'Kommentaren ze weisen.

intensiv Debatt

Et ass een eenzege Feeler mam Service, awer, deen et net benotzbar mécht ... d'Kommentare ginn iwwer JavaScript gelueden, eppes wat d'Sichmotoren net gesinn. Wann Dir e fantastesche Blogpost mat Tonne Verkéier hutt, deen all e puer Minutten ännert, ginn d'Crawler vu Google an d'Likes net eng eenzeg Ännerung bemierkt. Kommentarer, oder 'Benotzergeneréiert Inhalt' si sou wichteg fir Äre Blog wéi Är Posts!

Net sou wichteg awer ëmmer nach problematesch ass d'Versprieche vun Intense Debate datt Dir Är Kommentarer exportéiere kënnt wann Dir décidéiert de Service jeemools ze verloossen. Dat ass eng haart Pille fir ze schlécken ... besonnesch wa se hire Service einfach opginn an de Site zoumaachen.

Géif ech jeemools intensiv Debatt benotzen? Vläicht ... wa se d'Javascript Method fir d'Kommentarer ze weisen opginn an amplaz hire Service an eng "shared" Approche geännert ze hunn, wou d'Kommentare vu mengem Blog zerwéiert ginn MEE och an hirem Service gepost ginn. Dat géif dat Bescht vu béide Welte bidden ... all d'Virdeeler vun hirer Uwendung zousätzlech fir vum User-generéierten Inhalt vu mengem Site ze profitéieren.

    That is an excellent point and one I’m surprised wasn’t addressed early on. However, I still think the service has great potential. Now that they have done the legwork on creating a service like this, all they’d need to do is release a basic API and people like you and I will just scramble to create a WordPress plug-in that integrates the comments into each post without javascript.

    It’s kind of an interesting concept… outsourcing your blog comments to another service. Will probably help with spam issues. Makes me wonder what else you could potentially “outsource” in your blog (and on the flip side, what kinds of new blog services could be provided).

    Their Alexa traffic history shows a couple major spikes. It will be interesting to see if the service can grow with and handle increasing demand. As with many blog widget-type services, if they grow too fast and can’t handle the load, they cause all their blogs to load slow and users can jump ship.

    Hi Douglas. Thanks for posting about IntenseDebate. I’d like to address a couple of your concerns. IntenseDebate does offer an exporter for WordPress that puts your comments directly back into WordPress’ proprietary comment system.

    In regards to placing comments made in IntenseDebate directly into your WordPress comments as a backup, indexing comments, and our API (per Noah’s comment above), we’ve got some huge features coming down the line very shortly! I can’t spill the beans publicly yet (although I guess I just did), but let’s just say that your entire wish list will be covered along with a ton of other awesome features.

    We’re looking for beta testers for our upcoming WordPress plugin version 2.0. If you’re interested in finding out more about the awesome features included in this and getting on the beta list please email me at support@intensedebate.com. I’d love to have you using IntenseDebate.

    Léif Gréiss,
    Michael
