Support » Plugin: Disqus Comment System » After 6 Years, They Messed Everything Up.

  • I have used this plugin for over 6 years. With no ads. Great system.
    After I migrated to a new server, all of a sudden I get ads. Now if the ads were good, I wouldn’t mind too much. But the ads are all low quality and scammy.

    To upgrade to $11 per month is not worth it if you only get a few comments per month.

    When I decided to use WordPress native system, I noticed not all my comments are in my database. Then to realize disqus sneakily disabled importing comments.

    I had comments up to 2018, and discus only allows you to import the comments from the last year. Leaving me with 2 years of no comments.

    While yes they have an export system, it is pointless as you can not use it.

    If they allowed you to import all your comments, then I would not give a 1 star review. They chose to skrew you over, as they can import comments beyond 1 year ago, as you can list the reviews regardless. So it’s just a tactic they use to force you to use their system.

    Glad I’m no longer using this.
