We launch our new commenting system—now comments are easier to make and conversations are better
Late last week, we launched Disqus, a discussion platform for our blog posts that will make it even easier for you to weigh in with your opinions on our articles. You can still post comments using an email address, but now you can also log in using a Twitter, Facebook, Google+ or Disqus account and share the discussion on social media platforms. Some of our favourite features: (1) the “Comments” tab shows the comments on a post from newest to oldest with replies appearing directly after the comment to which they’re responding; (2) the “Reactions” tab shows the conversation on Twitter and Facebook; and (3) the “Community” tab lists the top discussions and commenters on Torontolife.com. The new set-up allows you to reply to and vote on specific comments, follow a favourite commenter and view users’ comment histories. We’re not the first website to use Disqus, and we definitely won’t be the last. We suggest you sign up today and start commenting. We want to hear from you.
