As a part of our feature release week, we’ve also added some new features to our comment sorting functionality. In addition to what was previously offered (sorting comments by date, user rating, & last activity), Intense Debate users can now choose the default setting for sorting comments on their blog. This option is now available on the blog settings page. By default, Intense Debate comments are now sorted by date, which is the sorting most native commenting systems use.
So go ahead, indulge your inner control freak….setup your blog to sort comments by user rating as the default. Or really go crazy and have your comments sorted by last activity as the default. Your readers will still have the option to view it the way they want, but let them know that this is how your blog is really supposed to be enjoyed!
