Comments now powered by TypePad Connect


I’m a big fan of TypePad, despite writing a book about WordPress (if anyone wants me to write a book about TypePad, contact me and we’ll work something out!), which is why I have been a happy TypePad user since August 2003 (here’s my first post). I find the TypePad line of products to be very good, and that’s why I just switched Blankbaby’s commenting system over to TypePad Connect (Oh, a beta commenting system. Yeah, I’m badass. I like to live on the edge.).

What does this mean for you? Not too much. You’ll notice a few new things when commenting:

  • A picture is displayed next to your comments (which you can set if you have a TypePad Profile).
  • Comments are now threaded.
  • You can reply to comments now.
  • Comments are now paginated (though most of my entries don’t get enough comments for that to kick in).

The benefits to me include:

  • The ability to reply to comments via email (sweet!).
  • A nicer interface for managing comments (though I have some thoughts on how that could be improved).
  • Get to use something new.

Let me know what you think of all this in… the comments (see what I did there?). Oh, and here is my TypePad profile.

  1. Do you like typepad connect? I can’t decide between Disqus, IntenseDebate or this. I don’t want spam but I also don’t want to unnecessarily block real users content. What do you think?

  2. Thanks for this fabulous information. This really helps, i’ve been looking for this kind of info hub on this issue for a long time now and for sure this one is great.
