Disqus Comments Popular ComponentPlugin

"Disqus Comments for Joomla!" integrates the Disqus comments system & service into any Joomla! based website. Disqus (pronounced 'discuss') is a service and tool for web comments and discussions - currently the most popular comments-as-a-service provider worldwide. It makes commenting easier and more interactive, while connecting websites and commenters across a thriving discussion community.

In short, the most important features of the service are realtime comments, inline media embedding, mobile commenting, social integration with Twitter, Facebook & other services and great moderation & anti-spam tools.

Web comments can be difficult for both websites and their readers. We think Disqus is the solution. Disqus makes it easier for people to comment and track their contributions on a single profile which they can display as a comment blog. After all, there is no difference between a great comment and a great published article.

Disqus makes managing discussions on one or multiple websites painless. With a powerful and intuitive admin interface, Disqus allows website owners to spend time elsewhere while Disqus takes care of the comments.

Key benefits for Websites, Publishers, Bloggers
* Threaded comments and comment ratings
* Powerful moderation and admin tools
* Filter out spam, trolls, and unwanted commenters

- Option for testing Disqus comments plugin locally before going live.

Enjoy one more fine release from JoomlaWorks!

It only took me 3 :-)

Seriously 15 years ago I was still programming away like mad, even today if I put my thinking cap on I can turn out a bit of code but the reality is that I have a day job and much of the advances made over the last few years have left me behind. Heck - why else would I be using an "off the shelf website" when I used to design and build my own - usually on Editpad! I feel well qualified therefore to give a non-geek review of this extension - it works and it's functional within seconds of uploading - only one setting *has* to be altered and there are only 3 other optional ones. It integrated very well and I'm keeping it. I had been building a bridge for "Discus" (different spelling - differrent software) but why bother ... "Discus" takes a week's worth of customising and life's to short.

Bottom line the DISQUS plug in works like a dream and if it's the sort of discussion/comment feature you're looking for don't waste time looking for anything better because I doubt it's out there

I disagree with all negative comments for this plugin, it works way too well.

I urge any and everyone who is providing feedback to try all the corners and make sure you don't miss on anything before writing any negative comments.

This plugin has worked really well and is one of he best way to integrate the commenting system in your Joomla system.

Disqus was easy to install and hook up with the parent site.

Two Thumbs Up and stars all across for this enhancement to the core blog capabilities of Joomla!

Joomla 3.2, T3 based template

Induces errors in other modules (like a lot of other modules) - the ones from Egolt, LandofCoder, Extra Vote, including their own other extension JW AllAideos!!!

My site was crippled in an instant, installed another Disqus plugin from this list, Simple Disqus Comments and it worked fine out of the box.

You are probably confusing errors with PHP notices. The extension works just fine in Joomla 1.5, 2.5 and 3.x.

Even if there was some valid bug, saying it didn't work without providing a link to some forum post or your site isn't really helpful by the way...

This extension worked well until we began requiring SSL on our site. Then it failed resulting in multiple JavaScript errors. SSL support needs to be added.

This has been fixed in v3.5.

This was just what I needed to use Disqus with my site. Was very happy to see it was available for Joomla 3.X
I really wish it worked with K2 also, but fortunately someone else made one so I got it too for K2/Disqus commenting.

In just a couple minutes, I had this installed. Curiously though, it did not work on K2, which you guys also develop. I had to use a 3rd party extension for that. Any, thanks!

I love this extension so I would like to give a big THANKS to the developers.
My only problem is that writing comments does not work from my Android device. I tried it on many sites using Disqus but could not leave any comments at all.

The older versions did work but after an php upgrade I just get a completely broken site, with a blank page. Removal fixed that.
Owner's reply

This was a PHP 5.4 compatibility issue, which is now fixed in version 3.3 of the extension.

This is a decent plugin but it would be better if I could customise the colours and the shape. The rounded corners etc look nice but not on my site. It would be 5* if I could customise it more.
Owner's reply

You can actually skin the comments box on your site using CSS. Disqus has an extensive walk-through on how to achieve that here:

We installed this on a joomla 2.5 site. The overall layout and functionality seem decent. This seems to be what disqus wants you to use as it is the only joomla addon referred to on their site.

Unfortunately, support from Joomlaworks is non-existent. For that reason we will be uninstalling it and looking for something else.

Took five minutes to download, install, and setup. Works great for me.

It works only for joomla defalut content component. If you want work for other component, you have to change the code.

Have always loved this product, and was excited with the update. Immediate download, and it also went blank immediately. A removal and it went back to normal
Reviews: 1
I would not advise installing this plugin, as it made my entire site (2.5) go blank after customizing the plugin (setting the domain and such). This set me back a whole day, and I lost some data.

Very poor plugin, do not install!

I'm fully satisfied with this extension. It does all I need and more.

Keep up with the good work guys.

Great Extension in terms of ease of use and styling but I don't understand why it doesn't link to the Joomla user database.

Commenters can log in via twitter, Facebook, Google+, and others but if they already have an account on your site, they can't just use their credentials from that to post. It doesn't make sense to me.
Owner's reply

That question applies to Disqus (the service) and the short answer is that, being a web service, it's not meant to integrate that deeply into Joomla!. E.g. it's got benefits (like the anti-spam features) which could never be implemented into a Joomla! commenting system.

This is great someone integrated this into Joomla. Disqus is the best comment system and this extension works great. I hope they continue to develop this.

Simple to use both to administrator and user. No need to custom styling. It just fits to every template. Awesome.

I use disqus as my comment system on 3 different websites, 2 wordpress and one joomla which I am new too. All three were easy to set up and a breeze to customize with CSS as you'd expect with disqus!

Now if I could only to figure out why disqus is above my social sharing buttons.
