Turning on comments

Turning on comments

This is an old post. It may contain broken links and outdated information.

Turned on comments. God help us. The last time I had a blog with comments on it was six years ago and it was a spammy disaster. I hope we fare better here.

Integrating Disqus comments with Octopress is ludicrously easy—simply sign up for Disqus (it's free), then paste your account's short name into _config.yml in the root of your Octopress directory and...and that's it.

I suppose if you want to do something more you can sign up for Akismet, a similarly-free antispam service. That should help to keep things nice and clean.
