How to Integrate Intense Debate Commenting System into Blogger Blog

I recently use Blogger but Unfortunately, I hate Blogger default commenting system as it requires more click and not really commentator friendly. Some of the popular commenting systems like DISQUS & intense debate can easily be integrated into BlogSpot commenting system easily and thus it will offer more advanced features to users.

Though if you wish to migrate to WordPress (Tell me why you should not) in future, importing comment from intense debate comment to WordPress might be an issue. But if you are a hobby blogger and plan to stick BlogSpot for long, it’s better to kick out the default commenting system and integrate intense debate or DISQUS commenting system.

In this post, I’m going to help you with how you can install Intense debate commenting system on your blog using simple techniques.

Also, you have an option to add Intense debate system to an only new blog post or integrate it completely into your BlogSpot system (old posts).

I would go for a later one, as readers might like to add comments to old and evergreen posts. Login to your BlogSpot blog, click on Template >Backup/Restore and download your current template.

Click on Choose file and upload the template which you just downloaded:

On the next page, it will give you an updated code. Simply copy it and go to the Edit HTML mode of your template, Select all and paste the code. It will replace old codes with new codes which are also integrated with the Intense Debate system.
