Pity, the project is abandoned
By , for WP 4.4.2

My honest opinion, IntenseDebate was something awesome in the start, but sadly Automattic gave up on it, and with every month IntenseDebate is becoming something of the past.

Now, there is no way to contact the support team, the development is abandoned, and the number of bugs is growing.

I recently checked my website's apache error log: GAZILLIONS of serious errors caused by incorrect SQL behaviour on the intensedebate end. This was terrible.

Time to give up on it, adieu, this is a pity.

Nice, but does not work with Rocket Loader
By , for WP 4.4.1

The plugin works fine, even with the latest release of WordPress.

But it does not work very well (intensedebate login) when using Rocket Loader (JS).

Worked great for many years, then suddenly stopped working
By , for WP 4.2.1

Can't log into my comments page in the WP admin to moderate comments - keeps asking me to log in to IntenseDebate no matter how many times I do. Tried resetting the plugin, reimporting comments, and then finally deleting and reinstalling the plugin entirely. Now it just sits there saying "Queued, waiting for import" on the settings page. I tried contacting support at IntenseDebate.com, but received no reply. Going to look into switching to Disqus, I guess.

Avoid. Causes problems
By , for WP 4.1

I had to quickly disable this plugin. I don't remember the exact error but it was unusable.


By , for WP 3.6

Some html parsing is broken (don't try putting an image tag after a link in the same comment), prone to seemingly random errors, only a tiny handful of plugins, terrible documentation, the list goes on and on.

Why does it says "no reviews yet" on here but it says it's rated 3 starts on the main page?
