How to create an API application

Unlimited API access is currently available as an add-on for users with a Pro level subscription.

If you would like to subscribe to Pro, you can do so in your subscription settings at Admin > Settings > Subscription and Billing.

In order to take advantage of the Disqus API, you'll first need to register an API application here.

After registering you'll be provided with a Public and Secret API key here.

You'll need these keys if you're looking to pull JSON data through the API or setup Single Sign-On (SSO) authentication

Using your API keys within WordPress

For integrated use with our API and SSO integrations, fields for your Public and Secret API keys are provided on the Advanced Options page within the Disqus Wordpress Plugin.
