Buggy
By , for WP 4.2.2

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!
By , for WP 4.1.1

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.

doesn't support vk.com and hangs up my blog

useless

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
By ,

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

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.
