Livefyre For Community Comments is No More

Livefyre For Community Comments is No More

I have been a long time user of Livefyre WordPress comments. In the last year, the service was bought by Adobe. One of the changes Adobe is making, is they are no longer offering community comments.

Fortunately, Livefyre stores all your comments locally and on their servers so it is easy to migrate to a different service. You do not have to worry about exporting the current comments as they are already in your WordPress Dashboard and stored locally.

I would suggest that everyone should move their WordPress comments to Disqus sooner than later. The Implementation is easy and their support is very good


The email from the Livefyre Team Discussing this issue is below:

I wanted to personally reach out to let you that Livefyre has decided to discontinue our Community Comments application. On October 20, the Community Comments WordPress plugin will no longer be available, meaning that no new users will be able to sign up for the application.

Your existing comment embeds will continue to function unchanged through February 1, 2017. After this date, the app will become display-only and no new comments will be saved. On March 1, 2017, the Community Comments application will stop rendering on sites altogether.

So, why is this happening? As you know, we were acquired by Adobe this year. As part of a global leader in enterprise marketing & creative cloud services for the most well-known brands all over the world, we must now focus on our team and core offerings. This means having to make careful decisions about which products are core to our business, thus we have decided to shift exclusively to an enterprise model.

This has been a difficult decision. From all of us at Livefyre, we are forever grateful to you, the passionate group of Community Comments users that have been with us from the very beginning. Many of you have been along for our journey as we built the absolute best engagement platform on the web, and we are truly thankful that you were part of this wonderful ride.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us ( with any questions or concerns you may have. We’re here to assist you in this transition.

Thank you,
