CommentBox alternative to Disqus

Commentbox.io seems like a good alternative to Disqus. Does anybody use it?

I do, it works perfectly

Thank you so much for sharing.
I hate disqus, he only gave me problems.
Today I will implement Commentbox.io

If Facebook is a thing for you, you can also try this integration for Facebook comments:

personally I prefer the multiple social login

Thanks for sharing this!

Could someone point me in the direction of getting CommentBox running in Ghost? The general instructions from CommentBox aren’t very clear

Well maybe if you want to pay for another service, this is good. But 100 comments will likely run out as soon as any website gains traffic… unless you pay

I was looking for a Disqus alternative as well. Looks good so far! Installing utterances commenting system to finally replace Disqus

Free, selfhosted, easy implement in any theme. Using it for a while now.

Google Plus comment would be a good alternative too,

Why would you suggest Google plus when they announced in October that their API’s will be shut down in March this year? Have you missed that news perhaps?

JustComments seems quite cool, too : https://just-comments.com. Not free. I’m currently trying it.

Mind writing up a guide on how to set it up? I’m the farthest thing from code literate.

Check out Isso as well - I have had no issues with it.

This forum uses Discourse, which has the most awesome sauce by far, and a very robust developer community. My research and testing settled me on Discourse on a Digital Ocean droplet for $10/mo.

I’ve tried many (all of the available forum options, I believe), including Commento.io which did work fine and was dead simple and minimal. However the developer was unresponsive to a simple question I had.

@denvergeeks Which other ones did you try? What did you end up doing in the end?

(I’m developing one — maybe you didn’t find it yet? See my profile.)

@KajMagnus – your Talkyard looks terrific! I’ll try out your forum solution on one of my testing sites when I can get around to it!

What did I “end up doing in the end”?

My journey could be titled “The Beginning in the End” (recently binge-watching way too many episodes of “Bones:skull: !!) I’m continuously, relentlessly testing and learning.

My life’s never-ending passion and delight is in discovering and studying open-source communities and their processes, and helping to empower and promote passionate, entrepreneurial developers like you.

I’m just a girl-geek-in-a-basement – but I just feel so happy and proud and awed every single day. I’m 55. It’s truly everything I can do to follow, fathom and understand the social and scientific impacts of the applied collective genius of our generation, gifted and led by our brave and precious open-source pioneers, and fueled forward by our robust open-source communities.
