    I’m curious about the discussion settings, because we need to approve comments before they are WordPress comments

  5. Tracee Loftus Avatar

    that’s cool because some people don’t want to bother logging into blab

    So it would be cool if they could be held in moderation, then pick the good comments

    you can save the blab video on your own video host

    @MarkBarrusHypno I hear it’s excellent

  11. Mark Barrus Avatar

    I’ve been using it, but I’m afraid to try a restore 🙂

  12. joel_birch Avatar

    @MarkBarrusHypno you should definitely try it. better to test it under a non-crisis situation.

    I only read it to see how often they tweet. More than one tweet an hour average and I can’t afford to follow them.

    great value compared to setting up user testing yourself!

  23. joel_birch Avatar

    can’t prop you enough on the accessibility point!

    Is being English classified as being disabled?

  25. joel_birch Avatar

    another important factor is how your site works with JavaScript off. Especially now that iOS content blockers are a thing.

    I’m guessing the main thing to think about once you have this set up is comment moderation. You may need a plan.
