IntenseDebate is Back!

The wait is over! We’re pleased to announce that IntenseDebate has emerged from temporary invite mode and is now available for the taking.

Since joining Automattic, we have been hard at work scaling our infrastructure and preparing IntenseDebate to deliver super-charged comments across the web.  You can finally inject some hi-octane conversational mojo into the standard comment system on your blog and website!

So what’s comment mojo magic all about? Have a look below (or at our Features page)!





WordPress Beta Plugin
We have also made our shiny new WordPress beta plugin available for download.  As a collaborative effort between both our IntenseDebate crew and the Crowd Favorite team, taking this beta plugin live marks the culmination of several months of hard work.  Hats off to everyone for a job well done and endless thanks to our alpha and beta testers!

So what’s the new plugin all about?

Two-Way Comment Sync

Comments made in IntenseDebate are automatically backed-up to your WordPress comment system, while your existing WordPress comments are automatically imported into IntenseDebate. You always have all of your comments so uninstalling is a one-click process if you change your mind.

Admin Panel Integration

Moderate and reply to IntenseDebate comments from your WordPress admin panel using our custom moderation page that looks and feels exactly like the WordPress page that you are used to. The only difference is the extra IntenseDebate zest we have added by including IntenseDebate avatars, reputation points, profile links and all of our other metadata gravy that you’ll love.

Search Engine Optimization

IntenseDebate outputs the standard WordPress comments enabling your comments to still be indexed by search engines that ignore JavaScript, while ensuring that visitors surfing with JavaScript disabled will be able to interact with comments made in IntenseDebate.

Trackbacks

Your trackbacks and pingbacks are all automatically synced to your IntenseDebate account so you won’t have to sacrifice one bit of link love by installing IntenseDebate.

Profile Sync

Create an account and login to IntenseDebate directly from WordPress! Syncing your accounts enables auto-login so logging into WordPress automatically logs you into IntenseDebate. Profile sync also means that comments you make are synchronized to both profiles so you maintain ownership of your profile.

Post Settings

WordPress admin settings like closing and opening comments on a post, and even changing your post titles, are automatically recognized and reflected in your IntenseDebate settings.




And even more feature goodness that we don’t have room for here. Interested in learning more about our WordPress beta plugin?  Have a look here!

It’s time to kick your old comment system to the curb and give IntenseDebate a try!  For more information please visit our help center.

It’s good to be back!

Along with the service now being available to the public, there is also a new WordPress plugin that has been released that taps into many of the features the service has to offer. Some of these features include two-way comment sync, admin panel integration, search engine optimization, trackbacks, profile sync, post settings and much more. If you have time, be sure to check out the video on the IntenseDebate blog post which does a great job explaining what the new plugin is all about.- http://blog.intensedebate.com/2008/11/12/intensedebate-is-back/ [...]

  25. I tried again. I have 832 comments and now 817 of them are imported. I tried 3 times. actually I am fine with that if the other bugs are solved. I don't know if these are peculiar to me but here are the problem I've faced (I've already sent this message tothe support departman. in order to make sure that I'am not only one facing these problem I post it here again):

    1. Even if it says that import process is completed in fact it's not. in order to import my comments completely I had to reimport my comments 6 times and still 26 comments are missing.

    2. This seems weird but one of my commenters has an email adress ibrahim….@hotmail.com and the funny thing is my later commenters also have this email adress in their comments profile too. under the default wordpress' comments section there is no problem. the commenters have their normal email adresses but under the intensedebate comments moderation page email adresses are messed up and are same as "ibrahim…hotmail.com"
    if you ask for I can send you screenshot of this.

    3. There is time zone difference in your system. I'am from Turkey and we use gmt 2. all of my newly made comments shows up in an unregular and unsense order under wordpress default comments moderation. if I disable the plugin I think all of my new comments will be messed up.

    and here is the another question, for we use wordpress 2.6 know which doesn't support comment threading and replied comments show up in an irregular order. So will it be fine when we upgrade to 2.7

    4. I don't know why but there is no comments editing section. I can only edit my comments in my blog. so I have three choices "approve" "delete" and "spam". What if someone wrote a wrong words or there may be some parts of comments which includes slang or smt. What am I supposed to do if one types something wrong?

    5. even if I disable the intensedebate comments moderation in order to use wordpress default comments moderation. Comments are still needed to be approved from intensedebate comments moderation to be published.

    Besides if I approve a comment under wordpress default comment moderation and then under the intensedebate moderation it multiplies the comments under intensedebate comments section. So I have to delete one of them. One of the url is not valid.

    6. there is character problem in "name section". for example "çilekli süt" doesn't show up properly. and I can't edit it either.

    7. I deleted a comment from my wordpress comments moderation not on purpose. That comment is still published and show up under intensedebate comments moderation. The thing that I don't realize is due to the two way sync. that comment is supposed to be added to my wordpress database again, right? Or did I get the " two way sync." wrong.

    Comment by Jose_HC — November 17, 2008 @ 2:06 am
  47. Donnacha – It looks like you are right… and it is a pity that links back to our blogs are not included. I do like seeing all my comments in one central location but I would rather have the links (if I am forced to choose).

    Josh – I might keep my profile on intense debate for a few more days and not uninstall the plugin to see if I get any traffic coming from the profile.

    Since I am just starting my blogs I need the links.

    Comment by Jose_HC — November 17, 2008 @ 2:17 am
  48. well, let's see if the bug is fixed…

    Comment by human3rror — November 17, 2008 @ 2:43 am
  49. Ah, I misunderstood before. I understand the point you're making, and Donnacha's comments below helped frame the issue for me. I like the idea of enabling links both to the commenter's blog and to the ID profile; users shouldn't have to choose between one of the other.

  52. We'll have language support in the future. Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Comment by Michael Koenig — November 17, 2008 @ 7:51 am
  53. Hi Donnacha,
    All good points. Im am sure the ID guys are listening.

    One thing I would add is that it isn't good for anyone if someone just comments for a link. There has to be a way to balance inspiring good comments and discouraging commenting just for the link.

    Again, all good point. I think you will see ID continue to experiment with different interfaces. The publisher has quite a bit of control over how things are displayed on their site, so maybe your suggestion could be made into an option for the blog publisher in the future. Cheers!

  64. I love the Forum Structure my Blog (http://www.fuerfrei.de) gets with intensedebate, but i do want to know whether i can edit users comments.

    I Often get users who post referral links, but i want to keep the content of the message, just remove a certain passage.

    I couldn't find this Option with intensedebate.
    Doesn't it exist, will it exist in the future, am i just not finding it?

    Keep up the great work ID!

    Comment by Black Lion — November 19, 2008 @ 9:13 am
  65. Just noticed something – the 'tweet this comment' feature, just tried it, love it… but… I thought at first it meant my entire comment would go to Twitter, assuming within the character limit. But of course, now I know that it just notifies Twitter so anyone following you thereon can go check out the article you've commented on. Which is a brilliant idea.

    Just wondering, though, if that text next to the box can be made a little clearer – say, 'send notice of comment to Twitter'?

    Also, I've had to take my entire comments.php file out of play as with it still accessible on the server, my site only features a right-hand sidebar on the front page – go beyond, and the right sidebar vanishes. Without the comments.php file, I get the sidebar consistently throughout my site irrespective of what page I am on. Any ideas? I've no idea if renaming my comments.php file will have any unintended consequences, but for now the problem is (temporarily at least) fixed by doing so.

    Thanks in advance!

    Andy

  69. Interesting point about the "Tweet this comment" copy. We'll definitely take this into consideration.

    As for the other file, does your current comments.php contain any <noscript> tags? We've found a few themes that don't play nice with our plugin as a result from this. Shoot us an email at support@intensedebate.com with your blog url and we'll get it sorted out.

  81. Intense debate is cool but i cant admire it right now.
    I noticed that on youtube I am getting error comments when I add the post to my favorites and i cannot post comments which really diminishes the experience. I guess just another reason to switch to this site and intense debate.
    does it ever get too crowded for the server?

    Comment by umm0k — December 2, 2008 @ 5:42 am
  82. I too think this is an area that needs rethinking. I use snapshots and they all show the link to ID which is OK for savvy users but a bit confusing for first time commenters. Under Firefox not all avatars show images (on remote sites unless specifically allowed) as that is a FF setting issue so the avatar doesn't always help.

    I would like the links back directly the the commenters site rather than indirectly via ID.

    Comment by JasonK — December 2, 2008 @ 10:11 am
  83. I noticed a reply to comments by email (Outlook) include the html code. That was 2 weeks ago. Hope that has been fixed as I don't want to have to re-edit every emailed comment on the site. The instructions about editing comments are misleading (have logged this to support separately.)

    It also seems that there are restrictions on editing comments. If someone makes a spelling mistake they might ask for a correction and presently that can't be done. It is possible to edit replies to comments but that seems somewhat random as well.

    It might be a bug – but seems one edit is possible but after that the edit function disappears. This would be OK if noted. On linked in there is a 15 min time window and maybe this is also happening here.

    If so – it would be useful to know this.

    On the whole the system looks positive but there may be too many variables for some.

    Comment by JasonK — December 2, 2008 @ 10:18 am
  84. Nope, although the blog owner can set it up in their IntenseDebate blog settings so that all commenters must be IntenseDebate members in order to participate.

  105. Wolkanca, try to reimport your comments. I tried 6 times and now all of my comments are imported but 26 comments. Even if it says that import process is completed in fact it's not.

  106. benim 26 tane yorumu içeri aktaramadı halen. ilk başta benimkilerinde tamamını aktarmadı sonra beş altı defa denedikten sonra aktardı hepsini. eklentide biraz sıkıntı var aslında. özellikle yorum yönetiminde birkaç tane bug var ama zamanla hallolur herhalde. bu eklentiyi tez zamanda türkçeye çevirmek lazım.

  107. No subscribe by email or is that the same as the track replies box?

    Comment by Jaggs — January 7, 2009 @ 1:55 am
  108. bleh. still lost comments. and email is not working perfectly… widgets are broke too when choosing between multiple blogs (won't change code automactially).

  109. valla blogumda 30bin kadar yorum var sanırım 15bin kadarını aktarmış :) buglardan biri yazılan yorumlar hatalı yazılara kayıt oluyor wordpress de. bu da sanırım bu aktarma işinin bitmemesinden kaynaklanıyordur. 5-10 tane yorum almasa amenna ama malum 30bin yorumdan 15 bini yok :) düzelir herhalde bir kaç resetlemeye.
    diğer dillere çevrilmesi hiç de zor olmasa gerek, wordpress in bir çok dil desteği var aynı şekilde çevirilecektir.

  110. ben de daha ilginç birşey söyleyeyim. benim blogda aktartılmayan 100 yorumun tamamı bana ait olan yorumlardı :) bir de sanırım time zone farklılığı var. yapılan yorumlar normal wordpress yorum yönetiminde farklı sıralamada gözüküyor. bunları derleyip rapor etmekte fayda var. bu sistemi kullanmak, sunucuyu biraz olsun rahatlatır mı. sunucu da bir farklılık oldu mu.

    Comment by vaveyla — January 7, 2009 @ 1:55 am
  111. evet zaman hatasi var gmt den kaynaklanıyor biz de +2 olmalıydı fakat amerikan saatine göre alıyor sanırım. sunucu tabiki rahatladı en azından daha az mysql sorgusu yazıya girildiğinde örneğin 500 yorumlu bir yazıya girildiğini düşün :) searchregex isimli bir eklenti var bunu kullan belki senin yorumlarında mail adresin veya başka bir şey hatalı onu toptan düzeltirsin.

  112. Holy shit, what kind of accent is that in the first video? Being a non native English speaker, I can hardly understand (I'm more used to US Northern East Cost accent tbh)

    Comment by Ozh — January 7, 2009 @ 1:55 am
  113. +1.

    Comment by wolkanca — January 7, 2009 @ 1:55 am
  114. aynen öyle oldu valla. bir yorumcunun mail adresi bir başkasınınkine de geçmiş. fakat işin sakat kısmı şu. yorumlara wordpressin mevcut yorum yönetiminde bakınca sorun yok, düzgün gözüküyor fakat eklentinin kendi yorumunda yanlış gösteriyor. yorum düzeltme kısmı da yok nasıl yapacağız bunu :)

  115. benimkinde 30 bin adet var 25 bin kadarını aktarmayı başarmış bir günde.

  116. Actually, a link to your blog is found on your profile page. A link to your blog is also found when hovering over your avatar. The profile page also houses a link to your blog's rss feed and your blog, all the social media accounts you want to put in… and all the other comments you make across the ID ecosystem. By having an account, people can easily follow you and your comments…all leading to more traffic directed at your blog, more notoriety for you, and an overall better commenting atmosphere.

    Having ID installed on your site also leads to more pageviews of your blog as people have more conversations on YOUR site, not friendfeed, not twitter, not IM. The conversation ought to stay where it begins and you, the blogger, are the benefactor.

  117. Trying it out on three sites… need to see how it works. What I don't like right now is how my name no longer links to my blog and instead links to Intense Debate… Does this mean that the linking capabilities which encourages many to visit and join the conversation is all gone? Will Intense Debate be the beneficiary of the links and the conversation now moves here? Wondering and experimenting…

    Comment by Jose_HC — January 7, 2009 @ 1:55 am
  118. what about for blogger Two-Way Comment Sync?

    i find the intense debate comment is loading very slow….sometime too slow until readers are complaining about it :(

    Comment by lisalicious — January 7, 2009 @ 1:55 am
  119. At my blog, the only time I see my name linked to my ID profile is when I visit as a logged-in blog admin. When I visit as a "civilian," every instance of my name as a commenter links to the blog.

    Comment by waveflux — January 7, 2009 @ 1:55 am
  120. I'm disappointed that commenters aren't allowed a more specific link from their comments to their own blogs – it seems to me that generating exposure for their own blogs is part of what motivates people to comment.

    Comment by donnacha — January 7, 2009 @ 1:55 am
  121. So, this is a test to see if making a comment while NOT logged into Intense Debate will allow a direct link to my blog rather than my ID profile page.

    Comment by donnacha — January 7, 2009 @ 1:55 am
  122. Hi Josh. I understand that a link to the commenter's blog can be found and, indeed, it's not a lot of effort to hover above the avatar BUT the big loss is breaking the convention of the direct, one-click link.

    In general, people click thru to blogs on impulse and, the more hoops they have to jump thru – including just one extra action – the less likely they are to follow that impulse; many of the people reading this will have experimenting with their own websites and seen the massive differences caused by factors as simple as link placement and order.

    Another factor is Google Juice – instead of links arcing back to your blog from all over the Web, from the hundreds of different blogs you might post on every month, you have one single link from one single website, IntenseDebate.com.

    The third and final factor is that, under my proposal – that gravatar, ID username + blog name all appear – the commenter uniqueness would be better conveyed, in passing, to the reader, essentially extending ID's "comment universe" idea to human memory.

    For instance, in this thread, you appear as "josh" and you've got a slightly distinctive but small avatar. If I were to come across another comment by you, on another blog, the chances are that I would not make the connection and remember your previous comments. If, however, the name of your blog, "Responding To Opportunity", appears right there, alongside your gravatar and ID username, I probably will begin to remember and connect your various comments.

    So, overall, yes, ID may increase pageviews on your blog may increase but your commenters are not being properly rewarded and recognized for their contributions, and that is what hits your blog where it hurts.

  123. Hello,

    Thanks for the information. Could, please, put the link for the download of the plugin IN the article?
    I had to read the comments to find it.
    Thanks! :)

    Comment by bcg — January 7, 2009 @ 1:55 am
  124. Addition to these bugs there is one more thing. Today I noticed that comments under default wordpress commentes moderation which were made after enabling the plugin don't have post permalink. they have only commenters name, email adress, web site and comments date. as you can see now it's impossible to disable the plugin otherwise comments may not show up.

    Comment by vaveyla — January 7, 2009 @ 1:55 am
  125. You can download the plugin here.

    Comment by michael — January 7, 2009 @ 1:55 am
  126. Great stuff. I installed this on my test site (http://richardontheweb.com for anyone who wants to see) and on a real site. I would like to see a connection between this and SezWho & Disqus. At least for the profile settings.

    Comment by richmcl — January 7, 2009 @ 1:55 am
  127. Yes, it does, and entering my email address allowed my gravatar to appear as usual too.

    So, essentially, with Intense Debate, we have system that actually encourages you to NOT participate if you want to gain exposure and drive traffic to your own blog – and I think it is fair to say that most bloggers want that.

    The trade-off is pretty straightforward – if you want to rack up those ID reputation points, you must sacrifice the direct link to your blog.

    On the basis that there is, at least, a way for commenters to retain a link to their blog, I think I would install Intense Debate … BUT … it is an awful pity that they don't encourage universal participation by simply allowing people to be both logged in AND to retain that direct link.

    Something along the lines of:

    gravatar_name linking to ID profile_blog name linking to blog_ID reputation score

    That would cater to everyone's needs, would promote the interconnectedness of the blogosphere (surely something that is in Automattic's interests?) and allow ID to become the system everyone likes to stay logged into, all the time.

  128. Evet ben de kullanamya başladım .. Aktarmada sorun görmedim tekrar bakayım %kaç aktarılmış. Yaklaşık 1000 yorum var ben de de.

    Comment by pisihole — January 7, 2009 @ 1:55 am
  129. I tried turning off the javascript and reloaded the page, but all comments on this page vanished. Scares me!

    Comment by thilak — January 7, 2009 @ 1:55 am
  130. We have identified and corrected a bug with our importer. Please try resetting your import and let me know how it goes.

    I apologize for the inconvenience.

    Comment by michael — January 7, 2009 @ 1:55 am
  131. I think intensedebate was a commentingsystem-mate for wordpress…
    good job guys…

    Comment by Ramadoni — February 26, 2009 @ 12:53 pm
  132. It does show a link ' Login to comment'

    Comment by Anand — March 14, 2009 @ 12:48 pm
  133. Why can't I uninstall IntenseDebate from my Google Blog??? No one can comment on my blog! Your technical support is not at all helpful. I would advise bloggers to avoid IntenseDebate until the issues with this software are resolved!

    Comment by Zardoz — April 7, 2009 @ 5:04 am
