IntenseDebate vs Disqus vs Livefyre vs CommentLuv……With soo many options for WordPress commenting systems, how do you choose the best one?
One way is to try them all. Which is what I did .
According to me the CommentLuv Premium plugin is out of the running because it’s much less dynamic than the others and makes people comment for the wrong reasons.
So that leaves IntenseDebate, Disqus and Livefyre. All these WordPress commenting systems provide similar features and here’s a comparison, based on my experience using them and what’s mentioned on their websites.
I removed IntenseDebate soon after trying it on one of my sites because it didn’t sync/show all existing comments, which is funny since it’s backed by the same people behind WordPress. I also think it doesn’t look as nice as the other two and has less social features.
I liked both Disqus and Livefyre. However, I lean towards Livefyre because I prefer the interface and look. But it’s really a personal preference and I’d suggest trying them to see what works best for you.
