Switching to Utterances For Comments

06 January 2021

I removed disqus as the comments provider on my website because I do not like its privacy policy. I’m trying utterances as the comment provider now. From the website, it’s: A lightweight comments widget built on GitHub issues. Use GitHub issues for blog comments, wiki pages and more!

It was easy to install and only required two steps:

  1. Install the App into my GitHub repo via https://github.com/apps/utterances.
  2. Added the following script to my blog
<script src="https://utteranc.es/client.js"
        repo="MonicaG/MonicaG.github.io"
        issue-term="pathname"
        theme="github-light"
        crossorigin="anonymous"
        async>
</script>

See https://utteranc.es/ for more information on the settings available.
