Update: WP Plugin 2.4.2

Today we’re releasing an update to our WordPress plugin that fixes a problem some of you were having where other plugins/widgets/JavaScripts were preventing IntenseDebate from loading. This is a minor update, but we recommend that everyone upgrades. It loads your comments slightly faster, and also corrects a URL that will allow us to improve the Facebook Connect functionality in the the plugin as well. This version also displays a neat little icon while the comments section is loading. 😉

You should get an upgrade notification in your WordPress admin panel soon, or you can also go to the WordPress Plugin Directory to download it directly. If you’re not using IntenseDebate on your WordPress site yet, now is the perfect time to get started!

  1. Hello,

    Thanks for the update! Unfortunately the plug-in is not displaying correctly in Opera browser. Is there any known issues with Opera?

    After the "Comments" text, the line is appeared as broken in "Opera"

  10. I've used ID on my blogs but it always gave me XHTML validation error. I've found this blog to be quite useful as it helped me make ID valid XHTML!

    Here's the link to it: http://www.davieslim.com/wordpress/validating-int

  11. Hi William, I replied to that post as well, but the plugin actually validates out of the box. I run it on my site with no modifications and it validates perfectly.

    Are you sure there's not something else on your site causing XHTML problems? I'd be happy to take a look if you can send me a link. It's never a good idea to hack plugins if you can avoid it, because then you have to do it again every time a new version comes out!

  12. nope, my site doesn't validate as well at first, it has those id tags making xhtml problems. once i change to class it is gone. I know it needs to be done everytime but not big hassle for me! 😛

  13. I replied over on that comment, but it looks like this happens because you have the same comment link appearing twice on the same page, so when we do a dynamic replacement of the link with some custom code, the id gets doubled up. I'm looking into how we can avoid that, but if you modify your WordPress theme so that it only ever displays the comment link/count on a page once (for each post), then you should avoid this problem entirely.

  14. This would be a very helpful system to debate with on a sports blog. Cool!

  15. I wonder whether commentluv is compatible with ID. You guys should really help out Andy adjusting his luv towards ID. JS-Kit has it, Disqus does not and as I heard it's quite hard to implement it for Disqus. You know what I mean – another + for ID against DQ.

  16. Hello. Testing 1,2,3. As you don't have a test page easily accessible from your front page, I'm testing here :-).

  17. I notice ID slows my page load time… so, do I need to uninstall and then start over with the new plugin? It would be nice if I could simply update…

  18. You should be able to just do an update via the WordPress admin panel. It will replace all the plugin files with the new ones, including the changes to the way the comments load, which should be a bit faster.

  21. Красиво получилось… Не знаю как остальным, но мне нравится. Кстати, как подписаться чтобы мне на электронный ящик приходило, если кто-то ещё оставил комментарий?
