@stiobhart I installed Isso for my work blog comments as I cannot let the comments go outside the company via Disqus, etc. And I love it. Installing was easy for me as I serve my blog and comments from the same machine.
A big +1 for Isso for supporting Markdown! Writing code on Disqus is a pain.
I want to now switch to Isso on my public blog too. I’ve never dealt with hosting services (my public blog is published by Gitlab.com CI Runner).
What hosting service do you use for Isso comments? Would you be willing to briefly describe the Isso server installation process on an external host? I am all set configuring Isso from client side (i.e. my Hugo theme).
