Enable comments on your blog with Disqus (Method 2/2)

Disqus allows bloggers like yourself to have a feature-rich comment system and it is installed just like our blog, with drop-in code. In a few steps, you can integrate a Disqus comment system for your visitors to start conversations on your blog posts.

This is one of the two methods you can use to add a comment system to your DropInBlog. The alternative is doing it through your Facebook account - learn how to do that here.

Once integrated, the comment option pictured above will appear at the end of each blog post.

Step 1: Sign up for Disqus and get a shortname

Go to to begin signing up
Select I want to install Disqus on my site when asked what you want to use Disqus for
Enter your company name in the Website Name field
Select your category
Click Create Site
You will then see different subscription plans, scroll down to Subscribe Now to the free-basic plan
Next, ignore the rest of the installation process and click Settings on the top navigation menu
Copy your shortname

Step 2: Once you have your Shortname copied, you will need to activate the comment system on your DropInBlog

Go back to DropInBlog and navigate to Settings
Scroll down to Social Settings and click on the Comment system toggle (to turn it on)
Paste your Disqus Shortname (Ignore the Facebook App ID - that is for our other method)
Save all changes and refresh your site to see your new comment system
