New Comment System for Chapala Club Readers

January 12, 2012

As a way to improve our website and to encourage more reader activity, has switched its comments to Disqus, a more fully featured commenting system.

Disqus will best serve our needs as a growing site and community.

Now you will have the ability to integrate multiple social networks with one account, so you can Tweet your comments, post them on Facebook, and do many other things. You can also show you "Like" any comment and you can anonymously "flag" any comment as inappropriate.

What we like best is that you can post your comments here on using your already pre-existing Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo, or Google account (or other options.

This will not only save you time by letting you login quickly, it will show your profile picture from Facebook or whichever account you use to login so we can see your handsome faces right here on ChapalaClub.

Of course, does not have any access to any of your accounts and never sees your usernames or passwords: you just logon to our comment system through those accounts (to make it easier for you to share).

You can still leave comments the same old way we have always used: just use "Guest" and type in your name as usual.

But, we hope you will choose to share your social network profiles with each other and maybe even "friend" one another in the process. Either way, it's just your profile picture with a link to your social network that will get shown here and nobody can get access to your social network accounts.

Each social account you choose to use will ask you just one time to confirm access to Disqus which you should allow. (There are half a billion people using this system on the largest sites on the Web, so don't worry: it's safe).

Here's a step-by-step comment how to:

1. First, type in your comment in the comment box:

2. Then, choose which existing account to post your comment as (e.g. Facebook):

3. Finally, (if you haven't already) allow Disqus (you only do this once and different accounts use different "allow" screens, below is the Facebook example):

That's it! We hope you enjoy our new comment system. Do us a favor and leave a comment below to let us know you here :) Thanks everybody.
