Comments for a post appearing on all posts. Why? (3 posts)

    When someone posts a comment, that comment appears on all posts. How do I get that to stop, so the comment only appears on the related post?

    This normally happens when the disqus_identifier of each page is being assigned to the same URL. One way to test whether this is being caused by a theme or plugin would be to temporarily revert to the default WordPress theme and disable all plugins. Afterwards, try publishing another post to see if this happens.

    Additional information on Disqus identifiers can be found here: http://docs.disqus.com/help/14/

    If you're still experiencing this, kindly provide us with a link and we'll be happy take a closer look.

    Thanks Talton, that's helpful! Also, here is what disqus customer service suggested: "It looks like the issue is that the disqus_identifier variable is being set as blank in the source code. We suggest either filling in this value with a unique identifier for each thread, or removing the variable completely."

    Solution: I commented out the disqus_identifier variable in the disqus-comment-system/disqus.php file and this seems to be working. To do this, select Edit under the plugin, select the plugin file, and comment out this line: var disqus_identifier = '<?php echo dsq_identifier_for_post($post); ?>';
