    Just want to double check before going ahead, as no old comments are showing up in Disqus after upgrading from 2.87.

    Is it no longer enough to have a Site Secret Key to sync comments, and the site now needs an API Public and API Secret Key in order to work?

    This message in WP isn’t very encouraging: “Your site configuration comes from Disqus. Changing these values may break your installation.”

    Can I just go ahead and add the API credentials created here https://disqus.com/api/applications/?

    Or is the previous Secret Key supposed to be working?
