Hi I am thinking of changing from the default WordPress commenting system to Disqus or LiveFyre. What are the biggest advantages of such a change, and maybe possible pitfalls I should look out for. Thanks.

Chose LiveFyre in the end. – drtanz Apr 16 '12 at 10:32

When you use Disqus you are in a way giving away the control to that company. The module is indeed very nicely built, you can access Disqus admin section from within your WP admin panel, but like I said; you are handing over the "root control" to Disqus.

Add one more your list: Intense Debate. Check this link for something similar. The pitfall I faced when I used ID was incorrect comments sync.

Is there still a problem with incorrect comments sync? – drtanz Apr 4 '12 at 9:24
Not sure, I used it almost 7 months back. – Rutwick Gangurde Apr 4 '12 at 11:01
