Less spam but comments dried up
By , for WP 3.9.1

I installed this about a year ago and the quality of comments has certainly increased - however the quantity has all but diminished to zero.

I turned Disqus off for 2 days during a recent template upgrade and the comments started flooding back in.

On the site, the MD of the company also has problems 'replying' to specific questions so that the replies are structures - basically she creates a new comment each time.

For example: How To Extract Money From Limited Company

Here you can see what I mean. It would be great if there was some way to move around replies within the Disqus admin console. Perhaps I can delete the reply comment, log in as her and then paste the proper reply back in?!

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.

A little too much loading

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

Good, but could be better
By , for WP 3.7.1

Hi, i really like how it looks like on my site, but i'm afraid of the long term commitment with you guys, i'm starting my site and i expect lots of comments, i don't wanna have to replace it with something else and lose all my comments.. is there a way to have it all on my site? not just an iframe?

Also, would it be possible to remove the branding off of the system if not have it all on my site? because the branding is just, not suitable.

Hit me back, thanks.

Nice... BUT
By , for WP 3.4.2

Nice project, and a handy comment thread for a regular user, but
it is not responsive enough for developers,

cant hardcode the language
cant hardcode some php files which affect the styling becouse is pulled from the disqus server
limited css styling chance.

Please work around a little bit because this can be huge and kickass handy plugin if done correctly!

Error: Line 104 or comments.php
By ,

PHP Warning: Invalid argument supplied for foreach() in /wp-content/plugins/disqus-comment-system/comments.php on line 104

It doesn't appear that the plugin properly captures an empty array. Recommend wrapping the foreach statement with:

if(!empty($comments)) {
  foreach ($comments as $comment) {... }
