Support » Plugin: Disqus Comment System » Watch out! You will never see your comments again!

  • First of all I would like to say ‘hats down guys’, because you have absolutely KILLED what was once a very decent plugin.

    This is a warning for anyone who’s even thinking about switching to this trashy spammy plugin. Not only your comment box will start showing spammy adverts on the top as well as the bottom, but it will be very unlikely that you will ever get your comments back.

    Disqus will basically steal all your comments.

    Probably like many others, I have let Disqus to run in a background pretty much on autopilot for several years until someone pointed out the spammy ads around the comment box.

    Then I realised that Disqus have changed their pricing model and unless you now pay a monthly subscription, your posts will be showing cheap and spammy ads that are absolutely irrelevant to the content.

    The ‘Sync’ feature is an absolute joke, and to top this up, I realised that you can only sync comments no older than 12 months. Ridiculous, isn’t it?

    So what happens to the rest? What happens to the comments that are older than 12 months and cannot be synced back to WordPress? Unfortunately these are held on your Disqus account by these ‘comment thieves’, and there is absolutely no way to get them back.

    It just makes me even question the legality of this plugin.

    So in order to try and see what are my options and get some basic support, I had to temporarily sign up for a paid subscription. Support is absolutely useless (awesome job you’re doing there Ryan!) – useless! Takes 4 days on average to have a question answered, and the result?? Cannot help you. Unbelievable!

    I understand you guys want to make money somehow, but what you’re doing stinks!

    This plugin should no longer be listed on WordPress depository! It’s just a scam.
