New comments system – what do you think?

Just a quick note to let my loyal readers know I have installed a new comments system.

This new system allows threaded comments, so now you can reply to a specific comment or quote a part of a comment made by someone else in your comment and continue the discussion about that point. There is also a button that provides the URL to a specific comment in case you want to link to that from another web location, e.g. you are writing a post on your own website and want to refer (link) to a comment someone else made on my site.

In addition to the added functionality (my old comments section was a little behind the times), I like the cleaner look and feel of this system.

Why haven’t I gone for the more popular third party comments systems at this stage?

I have been doing a fair bit of work on speeding up my website recently and am conscious that every bell and whistle you add via plugins increases page load time.

I would love to hear your feedback, and most importantly if you are having any trouble commenting please do let me know via email at
