The Eight Best Commenting Plugins for WordPress (2019)

WordPress Deals

An active comments section can add real value to your blog posts, and WordPress makes it easy to accept these comments, coming with a built-in system that’s preconfigured. But is the native system up to the job? In this article, we’ll share useful comments plugins that can enhance or replace the default WordPress comments system.

It can be disheartening when quality content fails to get the recognition you feel it deserves, which is why (rightly or wrongly) many bloggers seek ‘content validation’ by chasing publicly visible engagement metrics, such as blog comments.

Blog comments are far from just a vanity metric, though. A commenting system has been an integral part of the WordPress core since its earliest days — and with good reason. Comments are an ideal way for site owners to engage with their readership.

Comments can also enhance the content, as commenters often dig deeper into a particular topic or provide an alternative viewpoint. In fact (depending on the type of content), you’ll find that many people enjoy reading the comments section just as much as the content itself. This is most notable with news articles, where other readers’ opinions can offer different perspectives on a situation.

However, if you want your blog to receive lots of comments, you need the right infrastructure in place on your website. In this article, we’ll compare the eight best WordPress commenting systems — including the default WordPress one — to see which is the best choice for your site.

Let’s get started.

Native WordPress Comments

WordPress users don’t need a plugin to accept comments on their blogs, because the WordPress core ships with a built-in commenting system.

The native WordPress commenting system is relatively basic, admittedly, but it still does the job. You’ll find it in use on many blogs — probably because it comes preconfigured and pre-activated on any fresh WordPress installation — and, like the core, it’s free to use. In other words, you don’t have to do anything to use it — and that suits many time-short webmasters to a T.

The biggest advantage of the native WordPress commenting system is its front-end usability. To leave a comment, visitors need only leave their name and email address, and, optionally, their website URL. With few hoops to jump through, visitors will be more inclined to leave a comment.

However, there are numerous drawbacks to using the native WordPress commenting system — which, for the record, has barely been developed in over a decade. Users who comment won’t receive response notifications, there’s no support for user feedback (such as upvotes or downvotes), and it lacks social media integration. Plus, as many WordPress users will tell you, it leaks spam like a sieve.

If you like the WordPress commenting system’s simplicity, but find its weak points frustrating, I have good news for you: There are plenty of plugins out there that upgrade and extend the native system’s functionality — let’s dig in…

Disqus Comment System


Disqus is a hosted comments platform that’s one of the most popular commenting systems in the world. It works externally to WordPress (using the Disqus API), so it can also be used on other sites and systems, such as Blogger, Tumblr, Squarespace and so on.

It’s one of the most feature-rich commenting systems available, offering a step up from the native WordPress commenting system in many important areas.

For a start, it’s one of the more aesthetically pleasing commenting systems. It supports nested comments, social login and reply notifications — in fact, visitors can actually reply to responses via email, so they’re more likely to engage with other users. Visitors can also leave rich media in their comments, such as images and videos.

Visitors can comment via their Disqus account, too, which is a cool prospect as Disqus users can ‘follow’ other users and view their comment history — including comments on other blogs. This makes it a great way for like-minded users to stumble across other valuable resources — and some people may find your blog this way.

From the webmaster’s perspective, you can moderate comments either from the front end, back end, or directly from your email inbox — a level of flexibility that gives it an immediate advantage over its competitors.

The Disqus commenting system isn’t perfect, though. In fact, Disqus is guilty of a major commenting faux pas — by default, it requires that visitors sign in before commenting. Sure, there are plenty of options for quick logins (social logins with Twitter, Facebook or a Disqus account), but this extra hurdle can irritate visitors, many of whom will simply skip commenting altogether.

Social logins also threaten visitors’ privacy, giving them another reason to be unhappy. However, the upside to this is that this policy keeps spam to a minimum and encourages better-quality discussions.

Additionally, Disqus makes money by monetizing your users, including building a profile of your users and selling that data. For that reason, a lot of privacy-focused webmasters don’t like Disqus (Chris Lema has a good post about this).

So, in the end, you’ll need to balance those drawbacks with all of the extra functionality you get.


wpDiscuz plugin

Native WordPress plugin wpDiscuz tries to capture much of the same functionality you’d get with something like Disqus, just in a self-hosted package. It has quickly established itself among the best on the WordPress plugin directory, with 50,000-plus downloads and an impressive 4.8 out of 5 rating — not bad at all.

It comes equipped with all of the standard functionality you’d expect from a commenting plugin — an intuitive user interface, nested comments and multiple comment sorting methods (newest, oldest and most upvoted).

However, it’s also built for speed. The plugin ships with built-in ‘lazy loading’, which means the comment section is only loaded as and when it’s needed — i.e. when the visitor reaches the bottom of the post. It also supports AJAX submissions and ‘load more comments’ buttons, which means visitors won’t have to reload the page to use the comments section.

Offering loads of integrations, wpDiscuz is compatible with a number of the top anti-spam plugins — including Akismet — and will also pull avatars and profile details from top-member plugins such as BuddyPress. And, if that wasn’t enough, visitors can also log in via their favorite social network accounts — or you can offer anonymous comments, should you wish.

The most exciting integration, though, has to be wpDiscuz-Postmatic. This combo allows commenters to respond to comments directly from their inbox, just by firing off an email. This super-convenience can encourage deeper and more meaningful conversations to develop, ensuring a more active comments section.

As you can see, this is a fantastic feature set for a free plugin. However, you can also unlock more functionalities by purchasing premium add-ons. There are 16 add-ons to date, with my favorites being:

You can also purchase a bundle of all the add-ons for $99.

Thrive Comments

Thrive Comments plugin

Thrive Comments is a premium self-hosted WordPress comment plugin that completely replaces the native WordPress comments system with its own interface.

It comes with a bunch of improvements on both the front end and the back end, but let’s start with the front end goodies.

First off, Thrive Comments adds an option for visitors to upvote and downvote comments, much like you see on Reddit. Based on these upvotes, you can opt to feature the ‘best’ comments at the top, or you can even manually feature a comment.

To encourage users to leave comments, you can assign gamification badges so that active commenters get special recognition, and threaded replies make it easier for users to interact with specific comments.

Thrive Comments also makes it easier for users to leave comments in the first place:

  • It adds a ‘Leave Comment’ button at both the top and bottom of the comment feed — no more scrolling to the bottom of a lengthy comment list just to leave a new comment (Howard noted the importance of this feature in the comments section of this post).
  • Users can log in via social media to leave a comment.

Beyond that, users can also subscribe to comments to receive email notifications for new replies.

Another unique feature in Thrive Comments is its focus on driving conversions by letting you interact with visitors after they leave a comment. You can:

  • display a custom message or open a lightbox from Thrive Leads
  • redirect them to a page
  • ask for a social share.

And you can also display different after-comment CTAs, depending on whether or not a user has left a comment before.

That’s all on the front end of your site. But Thrive Comments also adds its own custom moderation area on the back end, which gives you a nicer way to moderate comments, along with tons of keyboard shortcuts to speed up your work.

Finally, while Thrive Comments does replace the native WordPress comments with its own interface, there’s no lock-in. All your comments are still stored in your WordPress site’s database, and if you stop using Thrive Comments your comments will still keep working with the native WordPress comments system.



ReplyBox is an interesting new WordPress comments system from Ashley Rich, a developer at Delicious Brains (which makes a number of wonderful WordPress tools).

While ReplyBox is platform-independent, it’s super easy to set up with WordPress thanks to the dedicated integration plugin at WordPress.org.

Like Disqus, it’s a hosted comments platform, which means your comments live on ReplyBox’s servers. With that being said, ReplyBox also syncs your comments with your WordPress site so there’s no lock-in, and you can also import existing WordPress comments to ReplyBox. That is, you can stop using ReplyBox at any time and you won’t lose your comments.

The most unique thing about ReplyBox is its focus on privacy. Unlike Disqus, ReplyBox doesn’t monetize your users, which means it has no need to track your users (remember, one of the criticisms of Disqus is that it tracks your users and sells that profile data).

In addition to privacy, ReplyBox also focuses on offering a lightweight solution. In fact, the entire ReplyBox embed comes in at under 17 KB, which is almost 30 times smaller than Disqus, according to the developer.

ReplyBox uses Akismet for spam filtering, and it also cuts down on spam by requiring users to register for a ReplyBox account or log in with Google to leave a comment. Visitors can also:

  • edit their comments after submission (if enabled)
  • subscribe to new comments
  • use markdown to style comments.

ReplyBox interface

You’ll be able to manage and moderate comments from the ReplyBox cloud dashboard, and you can also opt to receive email notifications for new comments.

ReplyBox is free for up to 10,000 monthly page views. After that, paid plans start at $10 a month for up to 100,000 monthly page views, and $5 a month for each additional 100,000 page views.



Replyable and Postmatic are two similar commenting solutions from the same WordPress developer. Replyable is listed at WordPress.org, and is more focused on just comments, while Postmatic is a premium solution that offers everything in Replyable — plus more email marketing features.

Let’s go through what Replyable does first, because it offers a really unique way to boost engagement in your comments section by bringing in email.

At a basic level, Replyable offers ‘Subscribe to comments via email’ functionality… just in a much smarter way than most other comment plugins.

What makes it ‘smarter’?

First, Replyable avoids spamming your visitors with individual comment notifications in two ways:

  1. It uses machine learning to rate comments and only send email notifications for high-quality comments. For example, if someone just comments ‘Thanks!’, Replyable won’t waste people’s time with an email notification for such a trivial comment.
  2. If your comments section is super busy, Replyable will automatically combine multiple comments into a single digest rather than sending separate emails.

Plus, the comment notification emails just plain look great, and offer a better experience by including user avatars and comment threading in the email body.

Second, Replyable is a two-way conversation. That is, people can respond to comments by sending an email, which is much more user-friendly than requiring them to come back to your website just to respond (though that’s also a downside — there’s no incentive for people to return to your site).

Plus, you can moderate comments via email as well, which is another neat feature that can let you quickly approve comments even when you’re away from your WordPress dashboard.

What’s more, Replyable handles outbound email delivery to ensure your comment notifications don’t end up in spam.

Replyable is compatible with the native WordPress comments system, as well as some of the other self-hosted plugins on this list, such as wpDiscuz.

Replyable has a limited free plan, and then a premium plan starting at just $2.99 a month.

Then, there’s Postmatic, which offers all of the functionality in Replyable, plus additional non-commenting goodies, such as:

  • email subscribe widgets
  • the ability to send newsletters, including automatic digests of your latest posts
  • monetization options.

Postmatic starts at $20 a month, and you can learn more about the feature differences between Postmatic and Replyable in this post.

Note: Replyable used to be called Postmatic Basic. The developer rebranded Postmatic Basic into Replyable in 2017.

WP Facebook Comments

WP Facebook Comments plugin

Love it or hate it, most of us have a Facebook account. What’s more, whether we’re avid posters or not, we all visit Facebook at least semi-regularly. And guess what? So do our readers.

WP Facebook Comments uses the same commenting system found on your Facebook wall. The first benefit of using Facebook comments is that visitors will recognize this format immediately, and instinctively know how to leave comments.

Other advantages include one-click social logins (with Facebook, of course) and reply notifications. Also, because of the Facebook association, visitors are more likely to share your content, and, because a Facebook account is a prerequisite for commenting, expect a significant reduction in spam.

The biggest downside to Facebook Comments is that it’s somewhat tricky to integrate, involving creating an app over on the Facebook for Developers website, which can be quite a technical process.

In my opinion, the Facebook commenting system is a bit of an eyesore, too. Customization options are limited, and this means it’s unlikely that WP Facebook Comments will blend with your blog’s design. At its best, it may look slightly out of place; at its worst, it could look downright ugly. For example, the plugin lets you choose between a light and dark color scheme, but that’s it.

There are also some problems inherent to using Facebook comments — problems that no plugin can rectify. For example, some internet users prefer to maintain online anonymity. No matter how good your content is or how easy the commenting system is to use, they’re not prepared to break this. Facebook comments displays each commenter’s name and profile picture, so some people will avoid commenting as a result.

On the flip side, because of the name and profile picture, people will try harder to make well-received comments — we all love validation, after all. Therefore, expect the comments section to be filled with higher-quality, thoughtful conversations.

Jetpack Comments

Jetpack Comments

Jetpack offers arguably the widest-ranging functionality of all WordPress plugins. Included in this complex suite of features and functionalities is Jetpack’s very own commenting module — Jetpack Comments.

Unlike most of the other plugins on today’s list, Jetpack Comments isn’t a commenting system in its own right — it’s an upgrade of the native commenting system. However, as a result, Jetpack addresses several of the native system’s most obvious shortcomings, while retaining all of its strong points. This has resulted in a large user base for Jetpack Comments, making it a worthy part of conversations surrounding the best WordPress commenting systems.

For example, visitors are still only required to leave their name and email address (and optional website) to comment, streamlining the commenting process. However, Jetpack also offers a social login feature — with WordPress.com, Twitter and Facebook accounts supported — for one-click access.

Visitors can also choose whether or not they want to receive email notifications of any follow-up comments, giving the conversation the opportunity to evolve into something more meaningful.

Jetpack Comments is easy to install, too — just sync it up to a WordPress.com account, and then activate the Jetpack Comments module. Job done!

The main criticism leveled at Jetpack is, with so many features, it’s a hefty lump of a plugin. Much of the code is simply baggage, meaning your website is carrying unnecessary weight.


CommentLuv plugin

CommentLuv is a specific feature upgrade to the native WordPress comments system, rather than a standalone commenting plugin.

It takes an incentivized approach to commenting. When a commenter fills in the optional website field of the comment section, CommentLuv automatically adds a titled link to their latest blog post.

You can also use CommentLuv to grow your email list by providing further incentives. For example, you may decide to let registered users choose which post they want to link to, or you can offer to dofollow their links.

Because many bloggers comment exclusively for the backlink, this means you can expect an active comment section, and, with the tantalizing prospect of a titled link, many commenters will go the extra mile to make sure their comments attract clicks.

Of course, CommentLuv’s biggest selling point — the backlinks — is also its biggest downfall. CommentLuv is likely to attract a huge influx of comments of a ‘self-promotional’ nature.

Is it spam if someone has read your headline and decided to write a short, barely relevant comment just to get the backlink? Probably, so you’ll have to be extra diligent when moderating your comments.

While CommentLuv has been without a developer, it’s recently been taken over by Elegant Marketplace, which is maintaining the free version and working on releasing a premium version with even more functionality. So, despite what you may have read on other sites, CommentLuv is now receiving active maintenance/support as of May 2019.

Final Thoughts

There are pros and cons to every commenting system featured today. This makes it impossible to declare an outright ‘best’ commenting system.

If you’re relatively inexperienced with WordPress and want to run your comments with minimal fuss or configuration, the native commenting system is perfectly adequate. You can also enhance the native system’s functionalities with plugins such as Jetpack, Replyable or CommentLuv. Or, for a bigger overhaul, you can consider Thrive Comments or wpDiscuz.

If you’d prefer to outsource comments to an external system (and lessen the load on your server), go with Disqus for the absolute most functionality, or ReplyBox if you value privacy and performance over depth of functionality.

There’s a time and place for the other systems, as well. For example, if your website thrives on viral and social media traffic, WP Facebook Comments may be the best choice.

My tip: Weigh up the strengths and weaknesses of each system, consider how the features fit your site’s needs, and then make your decision. If you’re currently using a commenting system that you’re unhappy with, this makes your task easier — analyze where your current system is falling short, then pick a system that addresses the most obvious issues.

So what’s the best commenting system for WordPress? Thoughts?

    Hi shaun sir,
    Thanks for sharing useful article. I am new blogging world. Please tell me, which is the best plugin for newbies like me.

  2. Samdani says:

    Hello author .
    You shared here some of the best comment system plugins.
    I appreciate your effort and would like to support little bit Disqus Comment System plugin though users of these plugins now a days use Jetpack like as usual .

  3. This was super helpful! I appreciated that you took the time to lay out the positives and negatives of each plugin. That’s what I really needed, and a lot of the other blog posts I read on this topic didn’t have that (not so helpful). Thanks!

  4. Tilveran says:

    Very interesting and thanks for the introduction to livefyre. I’m certainly looking for something social/viral to replace the default comment system. Jetpack is also out for reasons. My shortlist is between lifefyre, disqus and facebook… maybe I will look closer at postmatic too. Oh boy.

  5. Howard says:

    Good article. Question: why does every comment system I have seen ( except disques) MAKE you scroll to the vet last comment in order to leave a new reply???
    This, to me, is horrifyingly disgusting! New Reply should always…. be at the BEGINNING of the comment system layout, NO?
    Please advise

  6. There are pros and cons in using these plugins. You should find the time to do research and list down the perfect plugins to use for your blog’s comment section. Check the functionalities of each plugin and compare them with each other to know which perfectly suits your needs. Ramp up the level of engagement in your blog posts with a nice comment section for your avid readers.

  7. Gregory Lucy says:

    Hi Shaun Quarton,

    Thanks for your nice article on comment system plugins.I personally like disqus comment plugin and from your discussion, it’s clear that any one of above plugins can be fulfill your requirement.

  8. Turned comments off on my site, too be honest I wasn’t get that many comments and the ones that were stopping by were just posting spam to sites that were either of poor quality or just trying to sell something!

  9. Tom says:

    At the moment the best alternative to Disqus is wpDiscuz. This plugin is free, comes with tons of features, turns your comment box to a modern and AJAX powered real-time comment system. wpDiscuz is a native WordPress comment system, it stores all comments in your database and allows you to manage in dashboard. It speed-up comment box and doesn’t load them from 3rd party servers.

  10. John Di Stefano says:

    wpDicuz like all the others are far too complicated to implement. Just look at the posts at their forums. Beside that, most programmers think they have to enforce their style. To change this, often very good css knowledge is required. Why are they setting font-sizes, etc. Makes no sense to me. Specially wpDiscuz is completely going over the top. Try to setup their enforced Google Captcha. Or of you like the Google ReCaptcha better, that’s 20 Dollars please. even so the Google plugin is actually free. I will stick with the WordPress version. It’s clean, well structured and easy to use. With the Jetpack advancements its even better then most others. And it’s truly FREE.

    • Deadwoodz says:

      Complicated? You literally activate the plugin and you’re done. If you want to change CSS then you throw it in a box they provide in Settings, it’s can’t get any easier.

  11. WPDiscuz simply slammed my server down (WP Engine, one of the biggest and best around). I tried to contact the support but they said the problem was my server and even sair they were not going to give me a refund (I didn’t even asked for one). Very bad plugin, very rude support. NOT RECOMMENDED.

    • xpil says:

      Interestingly, I have been using wpDiscuz for a good while now (around a year, I think) and experienced none of the issues you are describing.

      Also, I had a query with their support team once, and they responded in a very courteous manner (although it took them a week or two to respond).

      I am not saying you are wrong or right. I am just saying that there are millions of bloggers utilizing different servers & OSs, various sets of plugins, themes and options; what works perfectly fine on one blog may f*ck things up on another.

      Long story short, I am sticking with wpDiscuz.

  12. Kev Man says:

    Im looking for a plugin that allows users to add a URL in a comment, and a preview image and description is displayed, rather than an ugly URL string.

    Does something like that exist?

  13. Megan Marin says:

    Great list and I would like to add one more that I think works great, because it’s not just another comment plugin, but a platform where you make your own community, keep comments and your website spam free and discussion relevant and valuable – graphcomment, saw it on several French websites (’cause it’s French plugin, no doubt) :) Have you heard of it?
    I used to have Disqus but it was getting to spammy for my taste, now I have WordPress’s native comment box, but I’m switching to gc, so wanted to know what some other people think of it, thanks.

  14. Jennifer Miller says:

    I am commenting here to see how this comment plugin works. I think I like it. Very easy to use.

  15. Jennifer Miller says:

    Hi Gavs, I’ve been researching which plugin to use and I’m in the final phase of my decision. At this point, now that I read your feedback, it’s down to wpDiscz and Super Social.

    I’m leaning toward Super Social but I wish they offered Twitter and Instagram login options.

    Anyway, thank you for your feedback. You helped me to remove Disqus from the running and best of luck in your search!

  16. Loraine Marshall says:

    Just researching commenting options for my wordpress sites, I have used Commentluv which was a recommended plugin on a course I did in 2014. I agree it can be a bit spammy. looking at some of the other comments on this thread their have been a few bad experiences. Agree that monitoring comments on WP can be time consuming, one of my pet hates is the email from WP notification telling me “please moderate a new comment waiting for your approval”. Disquis seems favoured starting at $10 per month.
    Or WP with Jetpack add on. Now I’ve got some choices and decisions to make…

  17. Rob says:

    Great round up – wpDiscuz certainly sounds promising. I’ve read a few negative articles about Disqus so am prob going to avoid it (yes, I see the irony in commentating with it!)

  18. Amit Dar says:

    hi, great article.
    Are you familiar with a plugin that limit the max character within the page (before submitting) so the user will be able to see how many characters left?

    I am looking for such a solution.

  19. Rigel Thurston says:

    Awesome article! This is super helpful. One question I have is if all these commenting plugins work on pages as well as posts.

  20. jenzgaard says:

    Hi, I’ve been searching without a result! How do I setup comments in a widget sidebar? Not just a timeline of comments but being able to comment on a post.
    The idea is to create a column next to the post.

  21. xpil says:

    Quite comprehensive and very well put article, kudos.

    One thing is incorrect though, you are saying ahat “I recommend choosing one of the external commenting systems — Disqus or wpDiscuz” – but wpDiscuz it not an external commenting system. All its data is stored within your local wordpress database, no clouds involved.

    I myself have been using wpDiscuz for the last year or so, very happy with it.

  22. Lance Freeborn says:

    Disqus will slow your site by 5 to 10 seconds and kill your page scores with tons of advertizing redirects.

    stay away from it.

  23. I have several blog posts on my site at the moment, two of the posts have comment section on the bottom of the post but the rest of the posts don’t have comment section. I enabled screen options of Discussion, Comments but it still not working. I tried everything to fix it but it still shows the same.
    What would be the best solution to fix it?
    Please if anyone can help me. Thank you!

  24. Shir Gans says:

    This article seems to need an update. Take a look at disqus comments on WP plugin directory.
    Also, FB comments is not supported any longer…

  25. latha says:

    thanks for sharing the best information about best commenting plugins for wordpress and suggestions they very useful to us.You made a good site it’s very interesting and thank you so much for sharing I am searching in many sites for the solutions I get from this site.

  26. sandhiya says:

    Good List,Thanks for the useful article.Thanks for sharing.I’m leaning toward Super Social but I wish they offered Twitter and Instagram login options. Very easy to use.

  27. Daudul munna says:

    This was very useful! I appreciate that you have taken the time to present the positive and negative aspects of each suppIement.i have enabled the Discussion screen options, Comments, but it still does not work. I tried everything to fix it but it still shows the same.

  28. Lorenzo says:

    Nice post, like some of the features in WP discuz and postmatic, personally use Thrive comments at the moment which is been pretty good.

  29. Navin Rao says:

    I generally go with the default comment system offered by WordPress. Clean and simple.

    Though, if I have to change any other WordPress commenting system then without any doubt, I will pick Thrive commenting plugins. It has more features and encourages the readers to comment.

    Thanks, Colin for putting all together.

  30. Great!!! That was a great post with lot of info at hand. I have been using Thrive Comment & I personally believe its one of the best plugin.

    Keep sharing such worthy information in future!!!

  31. I blog frequently and I truly appreciate your content.
    This article has truly peaked my interest. I will take a note of your blog and keep checking for new information about once a week.
    I subscribed to your Feed as well.

  32. I do not know if it’s just me or if everyone else encountering issues with your blog.

    It seems like some of the text in your content are running off the screen.
    Can someone else please comment and let me know if this is happening to
    them as well? This could be a issue with my browser because I’ve
    had this happen previously. Thanks

  33. Kim Scotland says:

    Up until I read this post I thought that the native commenting functionality was decent, it did a job and I’d never really considered features like upvoting etc.

    It’s given me real food for thought and I’m definitely going to check out the plugins you’ve mentioned in more detail.

  34. Nipu Barua says:

    Great list!!! I have read this article. Hare has different 8 best commenting plugins for the website. Actuality, I’m a web developer geek in 2019. So, the post very important for me. And I suggest you can read this article, then collect info. It’s Important!!!

  35. Lieo Robert says:

    Nice Post, Like some ofthe feature in wordpress and postmatic personally use.
    Great Article, or Great Information.
    it really information for my blog site.

  36. Shashank says:

    Using the default WordPress comments section was getting me 100s of spam comments each day… Thanks, colin for sharing this list of quality WordPress comment plugins. I am now using Postmatic and no spam at all…

  37. Souren says:

    You are right that an active comment section can really add value to our blogs. With so many comment plugins to choose, it is really difficult to pick the best. Blogs like these are really helpful in such a situation.

    Thank you Colin, for such an wonderful article. It was really helpful.

  38. Emma Clark says:

    Awesome article!! I really enjoy your article.
    All commenting plugins mentioned by you in this post are marvelous.
    This article helped me a lot. Keep writing and keep sharing.
    Thanks for this knowledgeable article.

  39. Smith says:

    I have always preferred the default WordPress comments system because it’s easy and does not create any loading issue on my website. But if I use third party plugin for comments it’s might be harmful to my site loading speed.

  40. William says:

    Thanks for the great article on wordpress comments plugins. I discovered several new plugins above, thanks to your research.

    I have tried things like disqus in the past. But I quite like the current default wordpress comment system. My only qualm, is that I would like a better notification system – i.e. users/posters on my site would get notified when a new comment has been posted on the site in general, or on an article they have previously posted on.

    Anyways, always love your site. Best wishes.

  41. Jsmith Kely says:

    Thanks for sharing,

    Much obliged for sharing a valuable article.

    I am another blogging world. If it’s not too much trouble let me know, which is the best module for beginners like me.

  42. Kevin David says:

    I would highly recommend use comment plugins as they are the best source for user engagement on your website. Besides, it is the most effective way to give reviews about products or services.
