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.

You can learn more about all Disqus features at:

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.

This is a fantastic plugin. Top marks to JoomlaWorks. Would be even better if I could work out how to import my old JomComment comments to Disqus? If you're reading this and know how, drop me a line!

I've been using the first version for a while, on a limited basis. I was very happy with it's ease of use and implementation but the single biggest downfall was not having the ability to turn on comments based on categories/sections/pages etc. The new version now allows selection by either category or menu item. This was the last piece of the puzzle to make this a first class plugin. Disqus/Facebook/Twitter login options work seamlessly. The only issue I had was with uninstalling the previous version. I had to manually delete the old directory in order to complete the upgrade.

Sign up for a Disqus account and give this plugin a try. It's simple and well worth it.

Works out of the box - you obviously have to create a Disqus account first, but it is a powerful commenting system which is configurable from the Disqus site. Early days but no spam yet! Thank you.

I was looking for a commenting component ( very few good ones ) and I thought I'd give this a shot, seeing how this developer has plenty of very nice extensions for Joomla. It wasn't what I was looking for and I for the life of me couldn't uninstall it. It said the plugin was removed but the comment for remained on the site until I had to manually delete files and install a different extension.

Hi folks,

I think this is a great plugin to be able to integrate excellent online service at

But I do NOT USE this trick without the ability to assign section/category to specify where to display...

Sorry guys but this is very important for joomla site.

I have problems with Internet Explorer 6 and 7. The browser freezes. No problem with Firefox, Opera and Safari.
JW has insured that with the version 1.1 the issue would have disappeared, but there is still.
However, it is a great idea, especially because DISQUS is a great comments system. We look forward of the improvements!

I have gone down the line of comment systems, was able to install most of them, but they just would not work for the life of me. I am having an ftp problem, not sure. So I tried this one, it rocks, and you get a little more out of its use. More exposure anyhow. Great job.

I want to use Disqus plugin. But I noticed that the frontend interface of Disqus comment system has no multi-lingural support, it only shows English language. And the Disqus plugin can't choose specified section or category. Not good.
Owner's reply

I'm guessing that the DISQUS people have plans to open their service to other languages as well. You can contact them directly if you want on this post:

Regarding display options, we will roll out v1.2 soon (along with the J!1.0.x version) which will feature the ability to filter where you want the comments to appear. ;)
