I cannot get both the Disqus and Now reading plugins to work with a theme. My first theme was 1 Blog Theme. It did not run the Disqus plugin. I contacted both the theme author and Disqus forums. The theme author does not know about the Disqus comment system, and the Disqus forum cannot figure out why neither the widget nor the post page shows Disqus. The Now Reading plugin author has not responded. I have tried a succession of other themes that do show Disqus, but not the Now Reading plugin widget in the sidebar. I would optimally want both to work, or some equivalent of the Now reading plugin.
1. Is there code to put into 1 Blog Theme's post page and sidebar to show Disqus. The plugin is integrated into my dashboard.
2. Is there a way for the Now Reading plugin widget to show on the Black Lucas theme?
3. Is there a working alternative to Now reading someone can recommend?
