    Thoughts on this? I’ve had success with other non-product pages on my site, but so far nobody has been able to diagnose the issue with product pages.



    What’s the difference between a “comment on a product” and a review?



    As far as I can tell, the “Reviews” option doesn’t allow for users to reply to each other as they could in a comments section. Additionally, my ultimate goal is to utilize Disqus commenting across the site, like you can see on this page:

    If i can enable standard WordPress commenting on Product Pages, the Disqus system will automatically fall into place, which is my ultimate goal.

    Hi! I’m interested in implement that too. Any answer?



    have you tried installing the disqus plugin? I’ve installed other plugins to hijack the comment system (seo facebook comments) and it overrode the “review” panel with no issues.



    I have the Disqus plugin currently installed. You can see it on the bottom of the Entry Cue Guide page I linked to above. It works great and it automatically replaced the standard wordpress commenting system without me needing to change anything.

    My review panel has not been replaced automatically 🙁 . Were you able to replace the Reviews comments with Disqus on your site as you mentioned?



    No, I used SEO facebook comments, which is kinda similar in what it’s supposed to do.

    I managed to get it working, though on a test site just now

    with the help of this tut

    skip halfway down to “Integrating Disqus Into WordPress Without a Plugin”

    the function disqus_embed(‘myexampleblog’); goes inside the reviews.php template file in your theme under woocommerce/single-product/tabs



    OMG. OMG. OMG. That did it! OMG. OMG. OMG!

    Sorry the such effusive expressions joy, I’ve just been working on this for a while and had almost given up.

    Thank you very much for your help with this! If you’re a pool player, let me know and I’ll be happy to get you a good deal on anything on the Select Billiards website.

    Thanks again!

    Hi carleton Torpin !

    I see that you are successfully replaced Disqus comments with the default Woocommerce Reviews. I tried all the hints from bheadrick but still not able to replace the default woocommerce review tab. Can you please show me how to do it step by step ?

    1. Should I still add Disqus code into function.php (I already installed Disqus plugin and have it enable in WordPress)?
    2. What the exact folder and file of woocommerce to add <?php disqus_embed(‘myexampleblog’); ?> to ?
    3. Do you need to modify any other file to get it works ?

    Thank you very much !

    the file reviews.php is in the plugin under woocommerce/templates/single-product/tabs/

    in your theme, create subfolders like so:


    and copy that file, and make the modification to that copy

    the function in the tutorial I linked to needs to be copied to your theme’s functions.php file. That’s all you need to modify.

    Many thanks for the instruction as I am now be able to integrate the Disqus in my single product page ! However, after that I tried to add some test comments, it be able to shows in the product page but there is no way it show in my admin dashboard to moderate it even I set comment need to be moderated before publish and simply there is no way for me to delete the comments after they got published ! Do you have any idea with this issue ?

    Can you not moderate them through disqus?

    No I can’t ! And that’s the problem, comments don’t show up in Disqus Dasboard !

    I want to enable standard WordPress comments at the same time as WooCommerce reviews. How do I do this?

    After reading this:

    I am doubtful that there is clean solution to this problem.
