“Once a new technology rolls over you, if you're not part of the steamroller, you're part of the road.”~ Stewart Brand
I never liked Blogger's commenting because it links the commenter name with the Blogger profile page instead of the person's blog. So I used Haloscan for several years. I was perfectly happy with it and never wanted it to change. But, like home loans being sold from one lending institution to another until you have no idea who is holding your mortgage... so JSKit acquired Haloscan. They ran it as Haloscan for a while... hinted at migrating everyone over to JSKit... kept postponing it and had people waiting for their "invitation" and then.... they suddenly gave a two week notice of shutting down Haloscan. Of course Blogger will not import the old comments from Haloscan, but this new Echo will import the old Blogger comments and actually keep them synched with Blogger. I have no idea what that really means. They also tout all this other stuff... which I still don't know about either. Trackback and pings and such.. so simple with Haloscan, even if you didn't know what you were doing. Not so, Echo gives a code to put in a template to do this but ends up with double "Comments" showing up on posts.
Anyway, my biggest problem is that when someone comments... I cannot find a way to click back to their website to visit. So, please.... (and I think you only have to do this once)... click on the "Login" button to get the pull down window and click on "My site (click to edit). Then add your blog address here. I think this should take care of it. I hope.
