Learn more about the features of the IntenseDebate WordPress plugin - for your WordPress.org blog.
Comments made in IntenseDebate are automatically backed-up to your WordPress comment system, while your existing WordPress comments are automatically imported into IntenseDebate. You always have all of your comments so uninstalling is a one-click process if you change your mind.
Moderate and reply to IntenseDebate comments from your WordPress admin panel using our custom moderation page that looks and feels exactly like the WordPress page that you are used to. The only difference is the extra IntenseDebate zest we have added by including IntenseDebate avatars, reputation points, profile links and all of our other metadata gravy that you'll love.
Your trackbacks and pingbacks are all automatically synced to your IntenseDebate account so you won't have to sacrifice one bit of link love by installing IntenseDebate.
Create an account and login to IntenseDebate directly from WordPress! Syncing your accounts enables auto-login so logging into WordPress automatically logs you into IntenseDebate. Profile sync also means that comments you make are synchronized to both profiles so you maintain ownership of your profile.
WordPress admin settings like closing and opening comments on a post, and even changing your post titles, are automatically recognized and reflected in your IntenseDebate settings.
Activating your IntenseDebate plugin super-charges all of your comments, including your old ones! This means that your old comments are copied to IntenseDebate. But don't worry, all of your comments will still be located on your servers so you'll always have full control over all of your comment data.
Until your comments are being imported they will not show up in the IntenseDebate comment system. The length of your import will vary depending on the number of comments that are being copied and could take several hours. You'll receive an email when your import is complete. This gives you the perfect excuse to step outside, stretch your legs and get some fresh air.
