Talkyard — a Discourse Blog Comments alternative

Discourse ( is primarily forum software. Blog comments are shown in an <iframe> that you cannot interact with, except for clicking and jumping to the Discourse forum, to click Like, read more or reply from there.

Comments are sorted by time, meaning, your readers will get to see whatever the first commenters wrote.

Talkyard by default shows the more interesting comments first (based on Like votes). Your readers can talk about different things related to the blog post, in different sub threads — the more readers and commenters you have, the more important this is.

With Talkyard, your readers can click Like and reply to each other, directly from the blog post page (no need to jump to a separate discussion forum).
