Disqus Comment System
Won't work with Tabbed Widgets for Most Popular, etc (3 posts)

    I just installed this yesterday on my WordPress site http://www.explorationtravelmagazine.com and while it worked just fine for comments, it caused my tabbed Posts widget to malfunction.

    I tried every single tabbed widget in the WP library and none of them worked. Is there a tabbed widget that works with Disqus so I might be able to show AT LEAST my Most Popular posts?

    I'd like to have two tabs in the widget that show Most Popular and Latest Comments but I don't want to be greedy over having the ability to disseminate information from my home page.

    The default comment sidebar widgets don't work because they're pulling from the WordPress comment database instead of Disqus itself (however, comments are eventually copied from Disqus -> WordPress).

    We have our own Popular Threads/Recent Comments/Top Commenter widgets available in your Disqus admin > Tools tab as a javascript include. You can paste the code in an Arbitrary Text/HTML widget within WordPress.

    We hope that answers your question!

    I don't know how I missed that.

    I went and did the settings, entered it into a widget for HTML/Javascript and - Bob's your uncle - there is is.

    Thanks for the help.
