As you know, I use Disqus as my commenting platform. Because of this I’ve been asked by a number of people how to set up Disqus for commenting on my blog and others. As a result of the many questions I’ve received, I thought it would be a good idea to do a simple Disqus plugin tutorial. Below is an explanation, with screenshots, to show anyone who visits my website what to do.
Disqus Commenting Plugin Tutorial
So let’s begin. First you need to set up an account with Disqus. You can do that on their website, or when you leave a comment on my blog. It’s free. Once you’ve done that, we’re all set to go.
Below is the screenshot of how to set up your account to show your website when you comment on my blog.
This is what you do to show your Avatar (picture) of choice (instead of the default picture) when you post a comment.
The screenshot below is what you do to get notifications of any replies on any comments you make. If you desire, Disqus will send you a digest of comments.
That’s all there is to it. You can use this same account/avatar on any website that uses the Disqus commenting plugin.
Below is what a person will see when they click on your avatar. With these above steps, this would not be visible for another commenter.
I hope you’ve found this helpful. Once your account and avatar is set up it will allow you to use this on any website or blog that has the Disqus commenting plugin. There are other things you can set up such as follow Disqus members, star the discussion, to name just a few. So take a little to see what else it can do.
