Changing the way the SEOigloo blog accepts comments

Greetings from inside the SEOigloo!

This is just a quick note to my valued readers to alert you to the fact that we’ve changed the way comments are being handled here on the blog. Since launch, we’ve had this set up so that you, the reader, would need to be logged in to comment. This meant you needed to remember your password, and the last thing I want to do here is make you have to remember yet another password! So, now, you should find the comments field working in a friendlier way with no login required. Hopefully I will not know be inundated with spam and we are crossing our fingers that our Akismet plugin does its job…at least, most of the time! Please, let me know if you experience any difficulties with the new way the comments are being structured or if it works well for you.

Thanks!
Miriam

    Hey Miriam, glad to see you went this route :) I think I kind of stumbled into it when I set up my blog this Spring & it certainly seems to be easier for commenters…not that I have any, since I haven’t published a new post in a month!! :) dm

    Hey David,
    Thank you, but now I’m afraid it’s not working as I expected. It made me approve your comment…I wonder if that’s a one-time thing or if I still need to tweak the settings. If you see this and reply to it, I can see if it makes me approve you again, now that I’ve approved your first comment since we changed the system. If you have a moment and would just say something here, I’ll have an answer to that.

    I noticed no posts for a bit on your blog, BTW. I’ve got you in my feedreader. Always checking to see if you’ve got something to say!
