Unable to convert to Disqus, so I'm switching back to the standard Blogger commenting system

I tried signing up for and installing a commenting system from Disqus, but I could not comprehend any of the features, nor could get their options to work on my template. Total madness. I found a page on Ask.Com that told to select "generic code" yet their was nothing like that available on the Disqus dashboard to help.

Great. So now I'll have to revert back to the standard Blogger commenting feature. I tried to save all the comments from the account Haloscan will soon be shutting down as part of their change of system (when I logged in today, it put up a wall telling to either convert to their paid options or just export everything to another system), and with any luck, maybe I can install them manually on past posts. But for now, it appears that I'm forced to return to the old commenting feature. I'll try to use something new in the near future if I can find a program that's comprehensible, and most importantly, works with the template properly.

Edit: okay, I did my best to restore some of the past comments as best as possible. I suppose I could keep trying to install Disqus software, but it was way too challenging for me. Even Intense Debate, to my astonishment, was an incomprehensible mess. Clearly, we've come a long way since Haloscan, which was pretty simple by comparison.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
