mucking with comments

| 2 Comments

I'm currently using SimpleComments on all of my blogs, because I like being able to treat trackbacks as "remote comments." However, given that my courseware blog will be generating lots of comments (I'm posting discussion questions there, and I've got 34 students in the class), I'm thinking that ThreadedComments would be more valuable.

It appears, based on the documentation of MTThreadedComments, that the two plug-ins together. But I'm going to attempt the integration here first, rather than risking my now in-production class blog. If you run into problems here today with adding comments, be patient. I'm working on it.

Update
It seems my hosting provider (WebIntellects) doesn't have the "patch" command available, which means I can't install the ThreadedComments on that server. Guess I"ll have to do an MT install on my PowerBook and play there before I do anything else. <sigh>

Interesting reflection on using comments in student blogs. Out of sheer laziness, I used Blogger this semester, which has complicated the "comments" problem considerably.

Even in my personal blog, I sometimes feel that my template (a standard MT template) tends to devalue comments, which I regard as an important part of "my" writing.

Good luck with installing Threaded Comments.
