Slow and painful
By , for WP 4.3

Getting this plugin to work nicely is like jumping through hoops. Avoid!

My first ever 1 star rating. *Cheers*

Disqus loads slowly on the front end and can often be a nightmare to integrate with advanced themes. The plugin UI itself is cumbersome and outdated. Absolute lack of support on their official forum even after chasing with numerous tweets.

It's the most bug full plugin I have ever seen.

Killed my CSS
By ,

When I installed this plugin, it told me I needed to update my database. I was a little concerned but decided to go with it anyways. After the install, all of my custom CSS went back to the original settings and I had to restore back to before I installed the plugin. Bummer. Thought it would have been good.

Used In Past!

This is just a fighting comment system to egg on fights. All websites that use this comment system is just fights, fights, and more fights. I can't believe how much fighting there is on this comment system on websites. No backlinks from using this comment system, and that is why I went back to WordPress comments. If you have a good theme, your comments will look just as good or better than Disqus. I only have a Disqus account for giving my 2 cents to discussions.

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.
