    Postmatic is getting more awesome and had taken the “subscribe to comments” thing to another level. Now I’m seriously starting to consider it as a must use plugin. Can we hope for a Slack integration anytime soon?

    Hi Jeff,

    Nice to see Postmatic getting some more love from WP Tavern, especially with this release. I’ve been using the service since way back in early beta days for PM1, and the ongoing support and dedication to bloggers (and their goals) is second to none. Really hope they get the success they deserve.

    I’d be interested in reading more, though, on your take since implementing PM here on WP Tavern. For example, I saw the screen grab of what digests looks like here, but aren’t you still using JetPack for email delivery of posts? Will you be moving over to PM? I find the JetPack template really clunky, just wondering if you’ve tested/compared?

    Also, how has engagement changed since using PM? Has it? Have you had any feedback from long-time community members?

    As an individual publisher, PM has made a huge difference in the quality of my comments. I already had a great, well-involved community, but the ease of replying/commenting via email has encouraged lurkers to comment more, and very thoughtfully too – wondering if you, as a bigger publisher, have similar experiences, or different?

    Sorry for all the questions, but would love to hear of the WP Tavern experience as opposed to the new features. :)

    Cheers!

      Hey Danny,

      I just published a post on the backstory behind WP Tavern making the switch to Postmatic for both front-end and email commenting. It sheds some light on the problems the Tavern was having with performance, trolls, and engagement… and what we did to fix each.

      I did notice that as of now you can subscribe to a weekly WP Tavern digest which is served up via Postmatic. You can find a subscribe box in the sidebar there.

    Postmatic is one of my favorite plugins. Sadly, I don’t have a site that gets alot of comments :( but the technology, support and methods behind Postmatic and Epoch are very cool.

    That Elevated Comments plugin is also a very nice elegant touch. I haven’t seen it in action anywhere yet, but I look forward to seeing it around the web.

      Thanks, Peter! Of all the things we’ve made over the last year Elevated Comments is quite possibly my favorite. It’s not had widespread adoption yet but…. someday maybe it will! It’s quietly waiting.
