DISQUS | Turn Blog Comments a Powerful Comment System

disqus logo2 DISQUS | Turn Blog Comments a Powerful Comment System

Plug in the DISQUS comment system and bring out the best discussion on your website.

Okay, this is really cool! I found this plugin by mistake while looking for a twitter one. Really excited about it.

Basically, you turn the boring commenting system of WP into a really cool and pleasant one.
The look gets a 10. The set up gets a 10. The overall usefulness gets a 20.

It works like this: you download and install the plugin. Create an account with Disqus. Set up the plugin from your dashboard. You can enable Twitter, Facebook and OpenId, so people can leave comments with these accounts instead of typing in their details.
They can also reply from these accounts.

You can like a comment, like on Facebook or directly reply to it instead of leaving just another comment.

So, instead of giving you a screenshot – which is not necessary since you can see how this work by adding a comment or looking at my other threads with comments – i will just copy and paste the benefits of this plugin and hopefully you’ll install it too. icon smile DISQUS | Turn Blog Comments a Powerful Comment System

    I’m still torn between livefyre and disqus. Disqus with tagging feature is awesome but some people said they’re selling users’ data to third party.

    I like Disqus. One thing to watch out for though is that some spammers are staring to use Disqus as a way to semi-spam blogs.

    This commenting system kicks butt. it is so interactive, i'll stop and stay at your site just to go through the comments !

    Disqus is the top commenting platform in my opinion. Not only is Facebook Connect integration nice but allowing users to also use their Twitter accounts to leave comments is awesome.

    Thanks Carol
    I found a simple one– there are several platforms for Disqus, but what if
    you have a site.. who knows. Thanks. I know what a dashboard is now, and my
    site doesn't have that!

    Simon, i run on WordPress.

    You can see here how to install it on your pages: http://disqus.com/comments/universal/ .

    Your dashboard gives you control over your comments and others that comment on your website and you are the admin.

    This is great Carol but I still don't know how to instal Disqus!… I have a site (not a blog–I have no interest in “WordPress” whatsoever, don't even really know what it is), and I upload it with Dreamweaver.

    I have a Disqus acc't (signed up today) but what next? What is an “admin”, what is a “dashboard”? I don't know! How do I install their widget or whatever to my site–it would go on my “This Week” page I guess? !!

    I also don't know how my name mymusicdiscovery is already on your site comments anyway!!!! Nor that I mind, it means I can comment.

    I'm asking you because you have a full website like me.

    Confused

    Hey Carol, thanks for the heads up on Diqus. We are going to try it at our used instruments website http://www.rockstarclassifieds.com.
    Not sure how we will apply it, but I like it better than a basic forum. We have disabled our forum so this will be a perfect upgrade. Cheers!

    I know exactly what you mean, Wally.
    Many of my visitors would rather send me an e-mail and i also didn't know how to encourage them to leave comments.

    Maybe now with Disqus enabled, they will comment more.

    Thanks a lot for your reaction.

    Carol,
    I read your post, and decided to try out Disqus on my blog.
    It is amazing how so little effort can make a BIG difference in the look, feel and ease of use in a comment system.

    I have always enjoyed comments, but sometimes I felt like I was lacking something to encourage more folks to leave comments.

    NOW, this is it. Check it out WP users….you won't regret it.
