I am extremely impressed by this new version of CommentPress.
Would it be possible to have the option to use Disqus as the comment system within CommentPress?
Disqus is a commenting system network that allows users to have a universal commenting identity, which is useful when you are trying to lower the barriers to participation i.e. casual visitors are more likely to make a comment if they already appear to be logged in, and if their contribution can contribute to their overall Web reputation.
With most WordPress themes, Disqus is specifically designed to easily slip into place instead of the native comment system but, quite understandably, CommentPress seems to call the comment system in a different way.
While most existing CommentPress sites seem to be geared towards professional users, such as academics, who won’t mind signing up to something they will be using frequently, I believe there is a lot of potential to extend the CommentPress functionality to a more mainstream audience of users, and displaying the familiar Disqus commenting interface, along with its social integration and excellent points system, would be extremely compelling for many of them.
Again, the work you have done is tremendous, I will certainly be making good use of CommentPress, but the option to have Disqus integration would truly top it off.
