But the issue was that this system didn’t really work that well. Comments got lost in the churn, I got notified kind of poorly, and it was all a bit messy. So a month or so back I completely revamped the commenting system, cutting out the middle-man (in this case Netlify forms), adding some moderation features, improving notifications, and generally making it run smoother.
The end product takes a bit more effort to put into production, but I think it’s worth showing off. In this first post, I’ll do a big picture overview of the whole system.
