Is Disqus free to use on my site?

Yes! Disqus is free to use. We also provide subscription plans for larger, commercial sites that want access to more powerful moderation and audience tools and customization.

How do I customize the look-and-feel of Disqus?

Disqus automatically checks your site’s font and background color and adapts to either a light or dark color scheme, along with a serif or sans-serif font. If these are detected incorrectly, you can override them in your Settings.

Will I lose comments if I deactivate Disqus?

The Disqus for WordPress plugin automatically syncs comments back to WordPress. These comments will remain in WordPress should Disqus be deactivated or removed. You can also export your comments from Disqus at any time.

Can I import my existing WordPress comments into Disqus?

Yes, you can import your existing WordPress comments into Disqus during installation.

How do I set up Single Sign-On (SSO)?

SSO allows users in your database to comment without requiring them to register with Disqus. Access to SSO is currently available as an add-on for users with a Pro subscription. If you would like to enable this feature, contact our Support team. Also check out our guide for setting up SSO on WordPress.

Adds affiliate links without consent

I have been using and loving Disqus for years but I don’t use it anymore for one simple reason: they add affiliate links to your comments (and keep the money these links generate). Yes, even if you deactivate affiliate links in the settings.

This means Disqus will earn money from your blog comments whether you want it or not and will not share the revenue.

I actually thought it was a bug and contacted their support about it. Here is their answer

« 1. To clarify, these two instances where Viglink is used vary in their function and role.
The Viglink function that may be disabled in the Advanced Forum settings controls Viglink merchant links being appended to relevant links outside of the Disqus embed, in the general content areas of the site. As we do not share out revenue collected by these links, we allow publishers to opt out of this process, in case they are looking to append their own merchant links or the affiliate process is changing the links in some way.

However, the Viglink usage that cannot be disabled applies to using Viglink redirects for links posted within the Disqus embed. As our embed is HTTPS-only for security reasons, this redirect process is used to link out to potentially HTTP links without giving mixed content warnings on the site. We do not allow this process to be disabled, as disabling this redirect this would cause security warnings on any page where an HTTP link has been posted in the comments. This is how we support secure logins, as well as users linking out to other pages, without causing security concerns and losses in traffic and engagement for the sites using our service. »

Works good overall

Disqus works well for me. Only issue is that it is a bit slow, which can sometimes be annoying, but functional wise it is very good.
