"Un antiguo sistema de comentarios para WordPress"

What do you like best?

La facilidad de uso general y la implementación simple es agradable. Intense Debate es fácil de registrar, fácil de instalar en su sitio de WordPress y, en general, es fácil ponerse en marcha. El hecho de que deje sus comentarios de WordPress en su base de datos local, lo que le permite migrar a otro sistema de comentarios en el futuro o deshabilitar el Debate Intenso por completo sin perder sus comentarios anteriores, también es una gran característica que fue uno de los factores decisivos en el uso de Intense Debate.

What do you dislike?

Ya no se trabaja mucho en eso. Ha habido algunos parches, pero no se actualiza regularmente y no hay nuevas características en el horizonte. El filtrado de correo no deseado tampoco es demasiado bueno, incluso con Akismet, los comentarios de correo no deseado se envían con regularidad, especialmente de los usuarios registrados de IntenseDebate. Existen algunas limitaciones en cuanto a la moderación y solo permiten a los usuarios hacer comentarios. Hemos experimentado problemas y escuchado quejas sobre problemas con usuarios que intentan hacer comentarios en dispositivos móviles también.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Mira todas tus opciones. IntenseDebate marca algunas de las casillas y es una solución adecuada en algunas situaciones, pero no parece haber un futuro planificado, mientras que WordPress y otras opciones del sistema de comentarios, tanto en la forma de proveedores externos como en complementos completos, continúan crecer.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Gestionar los comentarios en cualquier blog es un reto. IntenseDebate proporciona herramientas adecuadas para los moderadores y comentaristas por igual. Desde una perspectiva empresarial, es útil poder descargar la moderación a usuarios voluntarios y aprovechar el sistema de autenticación y administración de usuarios existente. Como la mayoría de los complementos de WordPress, el mayor beneficio es el ahorro de tiempo y dinero para lograr la funcionalidad que proporciona el complemento.

"An old comment system for WordPress."

What do you like best?

The overall ease of use and simple implementation is nice. Intense Debate is easy to sign up for, easy to install in your WordPress site, and generally easy to get going. The fact that it leaves your WordPress comments in your local database, allowing you to migrate to another comment system in the future or disable Intense Debate entirely without losing your past comments, is also a great feature that was one of the deciding factors in using Intense Debate.

What do you dislike?

It's not actively worked on that much anymore. There have been a few patches, but it's not regularly updated and there's no new features on the horizon. The spam filtering isn't too great either, even with Akismet, spam comments regularly get through, especially from registered IntenseDebate users. There are some limitations as far as moderation and only allowing users to comment. We have experienced issues and heard complaints about problems with users trying to comment on mobile devices as well.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Look at all of your options. IntenseDebate checks some of the boxes and is an adequate solution in some situations, but there does not appear to be a planned future, while WordPress itself and other comment system options, both in the form of 3rd party providers & fully contained plugins, continue to grow.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Managing comments on any blog is a challenge. IntenseDebate provides adequate tools for the moderators and commenters alike. From a business perspective, being able to offload moderation to volunteer users and tapping into existing user management & authentication system is helpful. Like most WordPress plugins, the biggest benefit is in the savings of time and money to achieve the functionality that the plugin provides.

"Excelente para administrar comentarios en mis blogs y paginas web"

What do you like best?

El debate intenso es muy fácil y gratuito de instalar en cualquier blog o sitio web estático. También le permite personalizar el diseño de sus comentarios utilizando el conocimiento básico de CSS. El debate intenso también es muy rápido y no lleva mucho tiempo de carga.

What do you dislike?

El debate intenso no tiene función de importación. El equipo técnico no responde en ocasiones, por lo que lleva mucho tiempo responder a sus consultas. A veces puede ser spam cuando se vincula con cuentas sociales.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Përfecto para blogs para paginas web no requiere muchos conocimientos es fácil de usar y muy completa la recomiendo a todos.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

El debate intenso también le permite utilizar varios tipos de complementos. Tiene widgets increíbles como mostrar las publicaciones más populares. Yo diría que IntenseDebate resuelve el problema de la falta de comunicación de los visitantes del sitio web. Antes no tenía un sistema de comentarios y no tenía ni idea de lo que pensaban los visitantes de mi sitio o de lo que querían decirme porque no tenía forma de que comentaran mis publicaciones. ¡Ahora entiendo mejor quiénes son mis visitantes y qué quieren!

"IntenseDebate For the Win!"

What do you like best?

I have a WordPress site and I spent a few days searching for a commenting system that I felt was top notch and provided my website viewers with a great commenting experience. I came across IntenseDebate and after installing I tested it out and felt like it was exactly what I was looking for. What I love about it is it has so many awesome feautures beyond the basic commenting. One of my favorite features is the ability to have comment voting! I also love that I can respond to comments through my email. I previously used another commenting system that made me login every time to respond to a comment and it drove me insane. Overall, I feel like IntenseDebate is a great commenting system and I am going to suggest it to my friends who are also using WordPress.

What do you dislike?

The only thing I would say that I dislike about IntenseDebate is that I think they should change the name of it. When I first saw the name I was not sure exactly what the purpose of the system was. The name does not give people the idea that it is a commenting system. Also, it takes a little bit of time to learn how to set up everything.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Take the time to learn how to set up the system, once you have it set up it is going to be a very beneficial system to have on your website.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I would say that IntenseDebate solves the problem of lack of communication from website visitors. I did not have a commenting system before and I had no idea what my site visitors were thinking or what they wanted to say to me because I had no way for them to comment on my posts. Now I have a better understanding of who my visitors are and what they want!
