Whenever I do an update to this blog itself, I will be providing some Release Notes on changes, including where possible, what I have done, as this may be helpful to someone else.
I was going to use a proper Semantic Version (SemVer) for the site, but decided just to do incremental number releases (like Chrome). Just, well because!. No other reason than ease.
I have now switched on comments using the service Disqus for which you can sign up for free. Because Jekyll doesn’t have a back end data store, this made the most sense to me (& Disqus has good support).
How did I do it? Well this is my site, so you may need to add it different places depending on your site structure, but I followed the standard Jekyll site creation for Github Pages, the structure is what I would call vanilla.
Sign up to Disqus.
Take note of the the shortname you create for your site.
_config.yml and add the following:
disqus: shortname: <replace-with-your-short-name>
comments.htmland and save it to your
_includesdirectory with the following snippet. This is the embedded code provided by Disqus:
posts.html. Add the following to the bottom of the
posts.html(or whatever your HTMl file is called):
bundle exec jekyll build
