Let’s talk about onboard comment notification in real time. I am the web developer, and it is unpossible with my skillset. I think it’s possible, and I roughly know what sections would need to work together, but I have no idea how to tell them to do so.


Haha – yay!

I’m not sure I know what you mean by ‘onboard comment notification in real time.’ See how quickly I fail? Is that letting people know when their comment is responded to as soon as it happens? Looks like they have jetpack here since I see “notify me of new posts by e-mail.” Perhaps this would work for them? The commentify with ajax at the bottom.

Wouldn’t regularly suggest a plugin fix, but I see they are already using several. I’m wondering where the responsiveness for mobile is coming from – perhaps a theme switcher? I’d love to look at their theme. Have you looked at it?
