  • Follow up: I have decided to try out Disqus and see if it will integrate the FB and Twitter mentions for now.

    Please, comment on your result! If Disqus can pull up comments from FB or Twitter, then I’m all over it, so your feedback would be helpful. But I don’t think it will :/…

    It doesn’t appear as if it does. I’m also experiencing a ton of issues with Disqus showing a different comment count.

    Here’s what the comment page looks like with Disqus:

    And what it looks like with Social:

    I REALLY wish Social could work on my theme… but it seems it isn’t supported, and I’m not sure why it isn’t.

    It seems to work, but you’ll need to re-do your CSS stylesheet to adapt it to your theme (it’s on plugins/social/assets/comments.css, if I’m not mistaken). You can use Firebug, or the developer tool from Google Chrome (pressing F12), to guide yourself in the process. It’s quite handy to do it that way, because it will preview your edits in real time. Sadly, this happens with a lot of plugins which add their custom CSS with a design set by default, but hopefully, one can edit that if posible.

    The trouble comes when you’re trying to use another comment system or plugin, with Social being enabled. Social doesn’t seem to work in this situation, so you’ll have to choose between Social or Disqus, in your case. You can see a similar issue in another thread I opened but with the Comments Evolved plugin, here.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for the follow up BGH_.

    I also noticed the comment count was off becuase it also considered retweets, so that really changes the numbers of what you’re looking for!

    Here’s what I have after messing with the CSS:

    URL is:

    Although not the neatest it could be the CSS I added to the stylesheet.css (not the plugin stylesheet, in case it gets upgraded) in order to achieve this was:

    /** Custom Social Comments Styling **/

    #social .social-post {
    font-family: ‘Open Sans’, sans-serif;
    padding-bottom: 25px;
    padding-left: 40px;
    padding-right: 40px;
    padding-top: 25px;

    #social {
    font-family: ‘Open Sans’, sans-serif;

    #social #reply-title,
    #social .social-nav .social-current-tab {
    background: none !important;

    .thread-even {
    background: none repeat scroll 0 0 #fff !important;
    border: 1px solid #E8E8E8;

    #social .social-nav {
    background: none !important;

    #social .social-comment-body p {
    margin: 0 0 5px;
    padding-bottom: 15px;
    padding-left: 10px;
    padding-right: 10px;
    padding-top: 15px;

    #social .social-comment {
    border-top: 0px solid #787777 !important;
    border-left: 0px solid #787777 !important;

    #social .social-children {
    border-top: 0px solid #787777 !important;
    border-left: 0px solid #787777 !important;
    padding-left: 40px !important;

    #social .social-comment-inner {
    padding-bottom: 20px !important;

    That looks pretty nice, indeed!

    I might end up editing mine on localhost, as I don’t want to break anything on my live site, or at least not for the moment xD.

    Glad you got it working in the end 🙂
