Disqus Comment System
Disqus integration into Buddypress (23 posts)

    Basically I was asking if there will ever be a free solution to integrating Disqus with the WordPress plugin buddypress (the same setup on the English news website the telegraph). Because I think it's rediculous that this feature should cost money if it is even offered.

    Thanks for clarifying. I'm assuming the feature to which you are referring is our Single Sign-On add-on. We've recently separated that add-on from our VIP service into its own package, so sites that with their own authentication systems (e.g., WordPress sites using WordPress authentication system or BuddyPress, Drupal sites, custom news platforms, etc.) with which they'd like to integrate Disqus can still use it without having to pay for the extra features of Disqus VIP.

    That new SSO package is currently offered at $99/month or $999/year. More information on, and a link to subscribe to, it can be found at http://disqus.com/for-websites/control-and-seo

    Well I think thats extremely expensive :( And I certainly don't have that type of money.. This is a shame since your comment plugin is the best on the market. If you ever decide to offer a solution that is free or at least affordable to the average consumer please contact me again because I would definitely love to have such a setup on my own site.

    Completly agree with @hornets2002. This is for sure a great add-on, but too expensive...!

    I too completely agree as operator of two gaming communities with under 100 members between to the two. It is said their isn't a free (or more affordable option) for those smaller guys and/or communities. And no I am not talking about non-profits, there are plenty of non-profits out there who can easily cover these fees. How about, you guys have an open source version that allows so many(50-100) SSO's per month? And if it is over, you can have it waived it provided you can prove that you are an not in the business of making money community? Just an idea.

    Anyways, thanks for the plugin and support.

    agree with @hornets2002 too.

    I believe most of wp users are that rich to use $99/month, that is expensive for bloggers or small site ownners.

    I wouldn't trust it. You have to contact them in order to activate it.

    @slaterbeckham
    Looks like myladybugg, is using invision power board.
    Look into wappalyzer, it is an addon for Chrome/Firefox that will analyze the code and tell you what is running.

    I went to their website(IPS Board). @myladeybugg your website looks awesome;).I just emailed disqus about SSO. Do you use membership plugin along with IPSboard? or users just register in the software?

    Thanks @slaterbeckham! I don't use any type of membership plugin. My users sign up through IPS and I use this plugin for SSO between WordPress and IPS: http://community.invisionpower.com/files/file/6089-wordpress-ipsconnect/

    Two questions for you lol
    1.Did you notify Disqus?about SSO? or it's taken care thru IPS?
    2. Have you tried to disable Disqus, Facebook,twitter,google inside disqus box?

    again thanks for posting me back

    1. For SSO between IPS and WordPress I used the plugin I linked prior. For SSO between Disqus and WordPress I contacted Disqus. I believe you can set up the Disqus SSO through the settings page somewhere in your WordPress admin panel.

    2. I have not tried disabling anything inside of the Disqus box.

    I see. More questions. Sorry for bothering you!
    1.Does comments made in the forum stays in IPS server or it goes in DISQUS community?
    2.Lets say users registered in Disqus do they have automatically have an account in your site? or they still have to register in your site?
    3. Any way to combine users in DISQUS with IPS(in your site)? you know instead of having two accounts?

    I really appreciate the help! You rock my world!

    1. Anything made on the forum, stays on the forum.

    2. This is a good question. I have never tried this. I would assume that if you have the Disqus SSO, when they register with Disqus it would make a user in the WordPress database. Then if you use the SSO for WordPress and IPS it would make a user in the IPS database. But like I said, I've never tried, so this is hypothetical.

    3. Yes. If you use the IPS plugin I linked in the previous post. This plugin allows the user to have one account between WordPress and IPS.

    No problem. Let me know if you have any other issues. I'll let you know how I configured everything in case it will help.

    • I had WordPress and IPS on the same domain.
    • I then installed the IPS plugin http://community.invisionpower.com/files/file/6089-wordpress-ipsconnect/. This allowed SSO between WordPress and IPS.
    • I then installed the Disqus plugin for WordPress
    • Last, I set up the SSO for Disqus and WordPress

    Now all of my members just need to sign in one time and can move between WordPress, IPS, and make comments through Disqus.
