Gets the job done, but the buck stops there
By , for WP 3.9

It is frustrating of the lack of support for WooCommerce which is such a widely used plugin. Simply by providing a way to filter or remove the action by which disqus injects itself into the comments section would allow you to prevent it from loading on the "product" post type. Seems like a simple solution, and one that should be implemented.

Does not integrate with other logins. Does not work on multisites.
By ,

I just installed this plugin on a new multisite. Some problems which made it unusable for me:

1. It only shows up on the main site.

2. Is there an options page? I think there should be, but I can't find it on the multisite.

3. If a user is already logged in (which may be common on a multisite) then the user still have to log in through disqus too.

A little too much loading

It might me my server connection, but my experience with Disqus is that it take some time to load.

Best comments plugin.
By , for WP 3.8.1

This is an awesome plugin. Makes it easier for people to engage with my website and it's also brilliant to track duscussions in the comments. Best thing is that people don't have to register to use it, all they need is a social network account (Facebook, Twitter etc)

Be aware!! Does not fix it all!
By , for WP 3.8.1

If you are downloading this to get rid of spammy comments on your page - be aware - it will delete them on the front and but not the back end! Meaning the comments will still remain in your html coding and you will have to delete them manually somehow!

Great plugin!
By , for WP 3.8.1

Although it might take a second or two longer to load than the rest of the page, couldn't be happier with its performance!

SLOW

Load extremely slow, and it doesn't load in mobile devices.

Don't bother.

GPL plugin for a non-GPL cloud based takeover.
By ,

I like Disqus as a commenter, and so decide to give them a try on my website. And I like the idea of an improved comment system on my website. But unfortunately, Disqus doesn't provide an improved comment system on my website.

Disqus provides a comment system for their website for visitors of my website. And since I am building my own website, it doesn't make sense to stop building my website, cut it in half, and give the other half to Disqus.

In fact, I find it fairly dishonest to advertise a GPL plugins capabilities when those capabilities aren't met with the plugins code, but through signing up for another service. Especially when the service is designed to load another brand and logos near the page footers, display external advertisements, and load three third-party links into the main web site.

One of the third-party links isn't even a Disqus link, but a link to a market spyware system named scorecardresearch which takes over the web browser of visitors. The third-party site appears to sell this information to their undisclosed clients, which for all anyone knows may be direct competitors. So from one GPL plugin, you give away a large portion of your website to Disqus, and enable some other business to spy on your visitors.

Having been presented with numerous information attacks based on trackers over the past few years, I'm going to have to say, thanks but no thanks.

Great Plugin
By , for WP 3.7.1

I use this plugin for my blog which called [ link redacted, please do not post links in the review section ]. This is a really great plugin. One and only disadvantage is, it take some time to load.
