Why are comments posted to other sites showing up in my Disqus admin?

You're using another site's Disqus shortname

The most common reason for comments from other sites showing up in your Disqus admin is because you're using a Disqus shortname owned by another site. This can be resolved by verifying the shortname installed on your site.

Verifying the shortname on your site

See the "How do I check which forum is installed on my site?" section at What is a forum?

Another site is using your Disqus shortname

Alternatively, if you've verified you're using a Disqus shortname you own, it's possible another site is using your Disqus shortname. You can prevent sites from being able to post comments to your Disqus shortname by adding your site's domain to your Trusted Domains list, available in the Disqus Admin > Setup > Advanced
