= 1.27 (08/23/2011)
* This version revises a change made in 1.26 which inserted the JavaScript when wp_footer() was called. This has been abandoned since the use of wp_footer() is not as popular as the WordPress docs lead one to believe. 🙂 The new method provides additional support for cases like this.

1.26 (08/19/2011)

  • Added an advanced configuration option which allows users to use an alternate embed method if their templates don’t utilize the comments_template() function.
  • The bulk of the embed code now resides in the footer of the page.
  • Preferences are now preserved if you do a re-install or upgrade of the plugin.

1.24 (08/09/2011)

  • Official WordPress directory release

1.22 (08/08/2011)

  • Improvements to the Settings page to clarify the signup process. Also added visual indication that settings have been successfully saved.

1.21 (07/22/2011)

  • We now ensure the code is only placed into the page one time. Third-party plugins were occasionally requesting the comment template multiple times which was causing duplication.

1.0 (06/15/2011)

  • Initial Release
