IntenseDebate is feature packed and we’re always adding new bells and whistles. Of course, you know this by now and are likely pretty familiar with our tools. Still there might be some cool features that you never knew existed. We’re guessing that you’re familiar with our email notifications, but there’s one method of subscribing to comments that might be overlooked (I know this because I recently forgot it existed). This post outlines three methods for commenters to opt to receive email notifications for comments posted.
Subscribe without posting a comment:
This option is located in the RSS menu in the top right of the comment section and is available to everyone: IntenseDebate users, along with commenters posting either as Guests, with Facebook Connect, Twitter Sign-In, or OpenID. You can opt to receive email notifications for a single post or for comments on all posts.
Subscribe when posting a comment:
When you post your comment you can opt to receive email notifications for all comments or just for replies to your own. This option is available to all commenters (IntenseDebate accounts, Facebook Connect, Twitter Sign-In, OpenID, and Guests).
Subscribe automatically (for IntenseDebate users only):
This option is enabled by default for all IntenseDebate users. You can configure your settings at http://intensedebate.com/edit-user-account.
More tips to come! ;-)
