    It is no longer functional and the BackType website no longer refers to it.

    Yes, this plugin has been retired. It's a shame because it worked really well but the company cannot keep up with such a high demand:

    Unfortunately, because of the demanding needs of the plugin (to update conversations in a timely fashion) and limited resources we won’t be able to support it any longer.

    There are two alternatives/fixes to it:
    1) Use Disqus (powered by BackType)
    2) Update the plugin to reflect the new BackType API
