How to create a commenting system with many different website options (12 posts)

    What I mean by that I've seen many websites where the commenting system gives you many options from where you want to comment. From normal email and name to disqus to facebook/twitter/yahoo and etc. How do you implement all those different website options for commenting?

  2. You can install a third-party commenting system, like Disqus or Intense Debate.

    Oh yeah I forgot to add that part. I know you can install those plugins but is there like one plugin that allows for all of the different website options or would I have to for example install one for disqus, another for facebook, another for twitter, etc.?

  4. would I have to for example install one for disqus, another for facebook, another for twitter, etc.?

    No, you'd just need the one plug-in - it integrates the rest. See this Disqus screenshot, for example: http://mediacdn.disqus.com/1319055443/img/marketing/features/sociallogin.png

  5. The one caveat is that I think the third-party system itself (like Disqus) is only available using its own service.

    What does that mean?

  7. I means that you can likely only log in to comment using a Disqus profile by using the Disqus plug-in, for example.

    Oh as in I will probably only be able to reply to the other users with my disqus account?

  9. No, it means if you choose a plug-in like Intense Debate, you won't be able to log in to comment using a Disqus account. And vice versa.

    How about regular people that are commenting will they be able to log on to any account?

  11. As you can see in the screenshot I linked to above, there is a choice of login options presented, including Twitter, Facebook, Yahoo, OpenID, etc.

    Oh yeah I saw that.So no changes on the commenting people except for the person using the plug-in which is me?

    If so that is upsetting. It would be nice to be able to log into any website account and comment back.

    By the way thanks for being so helpful!
