Just spent a couple of hours playing with the Intense Debate plugin after getting my invitation code this morning and I’m really happy to report that it will be compatible with CommentLuv. Well, it will be compatible with the new version of CommentLuv.
[edit 11 Nov 09] CommentLuv is now an official plugin of Intense Debate! just visit your ID dashboard and select it from the list of plugins available.
Intense debate isn’t working fully with OpenID yet but I made some test comments as a non-logged in user and it was able to add the last blog post so I’m confident that I can get it working with someone logged in to IntenseDebate.
By adding a small bit to the commentluv script that allows users to enter their IntenseDebate username to their profile it will work when they comment on IntenseDebate blogs when they’re logged in.
Ironically, it was what I learned making the JS-kit commentluv that got IDcommentluv working in such a short time (I got the invitation code at 8.45am and had commentluv working on it by 10:45am <- the same day! lol)
I’ve deactivated it now, I prefer the wordpress comments system at the moment because ID still isn’t able to handle openID well enough.
When ID goes public and enough people use it then I will finalize the code for commentluvID and release it. Nice to know it wont be too hard (oh god why did I say that?!)
