Disqus works on virtually any type of website or blogging platform, and is very simple to install through the use of our embed code. This guide will outline the steps to setting up Disqus on your website.
Steps for gettings started
Register with Disqus
Before going any further, you will need to register your website with Disqus. You will also need to create a user profile in order to login and administer this website. During registration, you will pick a shortname for your site, which is how Disqus identifies your website community in the system.
Disqus is compatible with many popular blogging platforms, content management systems, and virtually any custom website. Some examples of blogging platforms are WordPress, Tumblr, and Blogger. Visit the installation instructions section of the website to find the instructions for your platform.
Not using any of the suggested platforms? Thank try using our Universal Embed Code. Follow our instructions closely and make sure you set the correct disqus_shortname variable so that comments go to your forum.
Disqus provides publishers with the tools they need to cultivate thriving communities. Your forum settings allow you to add moderators, set community rules, and more.
After everything is setup
Moderate your comments
Disqus offers many tools to help you easily manage your community; learn more on our Moderation page.
Your Dashboard is the main page you see when you visit disqus.com while logged into the website. The Dashboard displays two main things:
- On the left side: a list of all the websites (a.k.a. forums) of which you are a moderator. You can administer a site by clicking its name.
- On the right side: your account's personal activity. If you use your account for commenting, you'll see comments you've left and replies to you. You can manage, edit, and delete your comments from this interface.
