Plugin Functionality

Installing the plugin

What's this whole importing deal?

Activating your IntenseDebate plugin super-charges all of your comments, including your old ones! This means that your old comments are copied to IntenseDebate. But don't worry, all of your comments will still be located on your servers so you'll always have full control over all of your comment data.

So what does this mean?

Remember that your WordPress comment system will still be running when JavaScript is disabled in your browser. Since we only copy your comments into IntenseDebate, all of your comments will still show up in your WordPress comment section.

Your readers will still be able to comment in your WordPress comment section if they have JavaScript disabled in their browser. These comments will automatically be copied over to IntenseDebate, while comments made in IntenseDebate will be copied over to your servers and appear in your WordPress comment system. Both comment systems run in parallel!

During your import:

Until your comments are being imported they will not show up in the IntenseDebate comment system. The length of your import will vary depending on the number of comments that are being copied and could take several hours. You'll receive an email when your import is complete. This gives you the perfect excuse to step outside, stretch your legs and get some fresh air.
