Today TypePad announced some great new commenting features which I've enabled on this blog. The new comment service has a sleek new interface and great features like threading, easy pagination, optional TypePad/TypeKey or OpenID sign in, optional profiles, email notifications of replies and the ability to reply via email - all with TypePad AntiSpam built in.
The benefit for me is it enables much easier comment/anti-spam management and the benefit for you is commenting should be easier. You can reply to specific comments with the Reply link, and edit/delete your own comments for five minutes after posting. If you want to leave a comment I'd be interested to see how you find it.
NOTE: The profile features are optional and are not required to post a comment. The minimum qualification for that is just an email address and it is not published on the site.
Six Apart - Blog - TypePad Connect, Profiles and Comments for Everyone!
Today, the TypePad team is launching three exciting new features for everyone who blogs or reads blogs:
- Profiles (a reinvention of TypeKey)
- New commenting capabilities
- TypePad Connect, a new beta service that is free for all bloggers and extends these features to any site.
