Poor optimization
By , for WP 4.1.1

Way too slow. Significantly slows down the site. I'm on a Dedicated Server, with a good CDN + Cloudflare and a speed-optimized WP theme, and when using Disqus, we go from 1.4s load time to 2.1s load time. It's horrendous!

Slow Slow Slow

very very slow, it should have a way or feature to allow comments to be display only when requested.

Essential plugin

Wether it be to strike spam or create a strong online community of followers, Disqus plugin is a must have online tool for your website

AVOID Disqus
By ,

Disqus was great for a while. Now I am having problems and they seems impossible to resolve. Perusing their site looking for help, I see they call themselves the Admin "Gods", they have standard cookie cut responses for everything and ZERO contact numbers.

I feel like my account was hacked by goofy hipsters, playing "Admin God" with my blogs. EVERY single post in my account going back more than a year, was marked as spam. I know that didn't happen from the actual site, it wasn't there before, and I can't fix it. I can't post a question on the support page, because Disqus has blocked me. I have NEVER posted on Disqus before.

No bueno

No longer functional
By , for WP 4.1

No longer functional with 4.1. I've had to go back to WordPress's commenting system because if I activate Disqus, all I see is "comments are closed." A major disappointment because I've used Disqus literally for years.

Works

Disqus comments are a wonderful plugin and work great on my install!

Stop working
By , for WP 4.1

I first notice having problems with disqus 8 days ago. It said:
Comments for this thread are now closed.
So, I change the expire comments time to 365 days and still kept receiving the closed thread. Then I couldn't even login to comments on my site. It would just reload the page when, I clicked on comments for a post. I contacted disqus support the very first day I noticed the problem 8 days ago. They ask for a lot of information. Since, I'm new to all the tech stuff I gave them access to my site. I sent them my login page. My username and password. All I received back was automated messages asking me if the problem is fixed. I realize this is a free plugin so, I guess I should of expected poor support.

Best commenting system

Hello,

i can't login trough my WordPress.
I already have a account on Disqus, but the Plugin tells me "There aren't any sites associated with this account."

Please help me.

Ways more engaging than the standard wp commenting system. Great alternative!
