    A New Way of Doing Things?

    Probably the most persistent complaint we have had about the official LDC website has been that it is tedious having to log in and difficult to comment on items, especially when compared with the LDC Facebook group. Some have also wondered why it is that some websites seem able to display conversations from Facebook on their website pages, but we don't.

    To answer the second question first, the reason is that the LDC page on Facebook is what they call a Group page, which is basically just a chat area for people who want to talk about LDC. But Facebook's goal is to get people chatting on their site rather than ours; so they don't provide a utility for viewing these conversations on the LDC website. The best we have been able to get is a panel showing pictures of the facebook group members. There is an alternative that lets us to set up an 'official' LDC page on Facebook: but this limits the comments that can be shown to those made by the administrators of the page. To do any more, we need to create a dedicated Facebook app; and this involves technical issues that have so far frustrated us.

    An alternative approach we are considering is to change our existing system of handling reader comments for one powered by Disqus.

    This would allow users to make comments using their Facebook, Twitter, Google or Disqus logins without having to log in to the church website first.

    Some websites have am arrangement that lets you use your Facebook or other log to simultaneously log in to their site. Unfortunately, the system we are running on does not support this feature. So the downside of using Disqus is that

    1. You won't be able to see any members-only sections of our website unless you are also logged-in using your LDC website username and password.
    2. If you don't already have a Facebook, Twitter, Google or Disqus account, you will have to get one before you can make any comments. (So that those in this position can have a say using their LDC credentials, we have included our existing 'Add Your Response' facility after the Disqus box, at the bottom of this page.)

    Please note that you can tell this website to log you in automatically, by ticking the 'Log me in automatically next time' check box when you check in, and then closing the page without logging out when you are finished.

    So please try out the Disqus system on this page, and let us know what you think.

    Just giving it a try.

    Hi, Elizabeth! Thanks for trying: though this is actually the old comment system. The new Disqus system is in the panel above your comment. If you'd like to try again, click 'Reply' under the post from lifedestinychurch_admin. or type in the 'Join the Discussion' box. Sorry if I confused you. I left the old system running so people could still comment this way if they wanted to.
