… when you are using JSKit (Echo) Patched template version (not the widget version they have now) and your blogger comment dashboard is showing 0 comments?  I am having a bit of joint pain today but I wanted to write this post before I really got to rest my wrist..

My blogger dashboard for this blog used to show me 0 comments on some post even though I know for a fact that there were comments there before. So when I actually moved to wordpress yesterday, I was ready to see 0 comments on my blog but… lo and behold there were comments on those post even though blogger dashboard was showing 0..

See the difference here? The same post is showing 0 comment on blogger on 15 March but showing 11 comments on wordpress dashboard yesterday.

zero comments

Post with 0 Comments

Post showing 11 Comments

Anyway I was surfing at Evan’s mom blog today and she highlighted a known problem with blogger about missing comments, so I thought it might be a glitch somewhere.  So here’s a way to check if your  comments are really missing or is it just not displaying comments on your dashboard.

First thing first, login into you JSKit dashboard and under commenting option, scroll down and check that your blog is set to synchronized  with blogger. If it is.. then good, you can proceed, if not.. then you probably REALLY don’t have comments at your blogger..:(

Ok.. so now if your comments are synchronized…

  • Go to your blogger layout>>edit html
  • MAKE A BACKUP OF YOUR BLOG and save it safely by “Download Full Template”.  *** DO NOT MISS THIS STEP ***
  • Scroll down to the bottom of the page and you will see


Revert Widget

  • When you click this link, you will remove the JS from your template but you will also remove most customized widget that is included in your template
  • Now check that post that is showing 0 comments on your dashboard and see if there are any comments displaying on the blog post instead. If it’s there.. then you are save to revert back to your blogger commenting system..
  • If this happens, upload the backup template and all will be restore again together with your JSKit commenting system.

So the choice is up to you now..if your template does not go haywire after the removal widget process and if comments are there, then you switch back to blogger commenting system if you want to..

If your template goes  haywire.. then you can take note of which widget is causing the craziness and add that up to the template again.

Good luck!

I’m seriously torn between three commenting system, JS-Kit, Disqus and Intense Debate.

I was a great JS-Kit fan and had it installed on all my blogs and raved about their services can customer service, but recently though, certain problems have arisen giving me cause to look at other blog commenting options namely Disqus and Intense Debate.

confused imageThese are the problems so far that I’ve encountered from JS-Kit:

  • The synchronizing with blogger comments are not consistent. Sometimes it does sync and sometimes it doesn’t, leaving my blogger dashboard with zero comments on some posts.
    • The synchronizing option of JSKit was the one drawing factor of JSKit for me. The fact that I won’t lose any comment in case I decide to switch back to my Blogger commenting system made me very confident of the program, hence the switch for all my blogs.
  • Recently with their “improved” follow option, blog owners are not getting notified of comments at their own blog even after changing the notification option on the JS dashboard.
    • This is definitely cause for worry as no notification means we won’t know if there are comments made on the blog. No notification means no response.. which, in my book is BAD

So like I said, I am looking for alternative and testing both Disqus and Intense Debate commenting system on some of my blogs.

To me, Disqus is good because it syncs up with blogger commenting system but bad it doesn’t support smileys and no CommentLuv. On the other hand although Intense Debate has smileys and Commentluv, it does not synch up with blogger.

Another plus point for Disqus is that although all three commenting systems offer exporting of comments, only Disqus lets you import those exported comments into their system. So for instance, although I might not have comments synch up with blogger for most of my post using JS, I can export the comments from JS and import it into Disqus and still have it appear on my post.

I was, however, not able to use Disqus here on this blog because it is too heavily customised and Disqus was not able to patch it for me.

You see the dilemma?

Currently I am testing Disqus on LJ Life’s Pages. LadyJava Creations, Online Money Chat and Blogger Cats while on Shopping Galore, I have Intense Debate installed. I still have JS-Kit on LadyJava’s Lounge, Being Woman and My Food Paradise.

I am monitoring them all closely and would update you with my decision soon.
