Tumblr Troubleshooting

Disqus not appearing on your blog?

  • First you'll want to verify that you've entered the correct shortname within the Appearance settings. Note that a space or uppercase letters will conflict with Disqus functioning properly.
  • If your theme doesn't have a shortname setting or has been coded incorrectly, you'll want to using our Manual Installation Instructions.
  • If you're already using the manual installation instructions, please be sure to remove the "<" and ">" from either side of your shortname.

Customization

These customizations require an advanced understanding of HTML and may differ among Tumblr themes.

Hide Disqus on static pages

{block:Posts}{block:Permalink}{block:Date}
      {block:IfDisqusShortname}
        ... Disqus embed code ...
      {/block:IfDisqusShortname}
{/block:Date}{/block:Permalink}{/block:Posts}

Disqus not appearing on your mobile device?

Disqus doesn't load in Tumblr's optimized mobile layout. You can disable the mobile layout by unchecking Customize > Advanced > "Use optimized layout on mobile devices".
