Today I saw an announcement that a WordPress plugin called Outbrain had added support for Disqus, so the two plugins can automatically cooperate if they’re both installed.

I’ve installed it and so far it seems pretty cool – Outbrain lets visitors to my blog rate my posts, we’ll see whether any visitors make use of it and what they think.  It also gives stats on the ratings.

I did have some problems installing it – you get a claim code from their website and enter it into the plugin.  This proves that you own your blog and lets you begin using the plugin.  My claim process kept timing out and then suddenly it worked – it may have been a server-side problem, or because I initially just used my domain name instead of the path to my blog.
