Disqus

Standard

I disabled Disqus commenting on my site. As it stands now, it just doesn’t integrate fully enough into WordPress for me to be happy with it. I’ll see if I can migrate the handful of comments over to be on my site within the next day or so. I think Disqus has a lot of potential, but I just can’t get used to having it here.

Update: I’ve re-enabled Disqus for the time being. Having trackbacks is a welcome addition.

    Could you detail the issues you had with Disqus? It’d help us greatly in improving the service. Thanks!

  2. <ul><li>Disqus comments don’t appear on the WP Admin Dashboard under recent comments. At the very least, I’ think there should be a panel on the Dashboard solely for Disqus comments.</li>
    <li>I don’t want to turn Disqus comments on older posts, at all. I have a plugin installed that disables trackbacks and comments on blog entries after a set amount of time. Disqus ignored that, and enabled comments on those posts anyways. I don’t think the global setting is a bad thing, but it’d be nice if Disqus comments could be enabled/disabled on posts on a case by case basis…</li>
    <li>Trackbacks weren’t working. I see that’s been fixed as of today. (Support for trackbacks in Disqus</li>
    </ul>

    Other than that, I think Disqus is pretty solid. Thanks for asking for feedback!

  4. No problem, Daniel. I think Disqus is great, but wish the WordPress integration were a bit nicer.

    I’m using WordPress 2.5.1. Here are a few of the issues I had:

    • Disqus comments don’t appear on the WP Admin Dashboard under recent comments. At the very least, I’ think there should be a panel on the Dashboard solely for Disqus comments.
    • I don’t want to turn Disqus comments on older posts, at all. I have a plugin installed that disables trackbacks and comments on blog entries after a set amount of time. Disqus ignored that, and enabled comments on those posts anyways. I don’t think the global setting is a bad thing, but it’d be nice if Disqus comments could be enabled/disabled on posts on a case by case basis…
    • Trackbacks weren’t working. I see that’s been fixed as of today. (Support for trackbacks in Disqus

    Other than that, I think Disqus is pretty solid. Thanks for asking for feedback!
