Disqus Commenting


Add commenting functionality to any page in Muse using the Disqus widget. Disqus (pronounced "dis-cuss") is a commenting system that helps your site and content to build a following, and encourage engagement through discussion and commenting.

Our widget easily and instantly integrates Disqus into your site. The widget is self-contained, meaning that styling and responsiveness are built in. And best of all, it is fully dynamic - meaning that discussion will appear on site pages without needing to open your Muse projects to post comments manually. Moderation and fine tuning of your discussion community can be controlled on the Disqus site.

  • Widget Compatibility: Highly Compatible (No known issues when combining with other MuseThemes widgets)
  • Current Version: 1.0
  • Supported Devices: Desktop, Tablet, Phone


  • Drag the widget from the library and drop into your project in Design mode.
  • Place the widget where you would like it to appear within your page.
  • Size the widget as you would like. We don't suggest using the widget stretched to full width, since the text generally looks bad bumped up against the edges of the browser window.
  • This widget is responsive. Make sure that you have the widget set to Responsive Width in the Resize menu unless you want the widget to stay at a fixed width. You will likely want to check the positioning and size settings of the width at all breakpoints.
  • If you don't already have an account with Disqus, head there and set up a free account. Your will choose a username, which Disqus calls a "shortname".
  • Enter your shortname into the widget option panel
  • You will also need to know your page's URL. You may not know this if your site isn't published yet. If you know your domain, this will be easy. For example, if your page name is "blog", and your domain is "www.mysite.com", your URL would likely be: http://www.mysite.com/blog
  • The "Disqus Page Identifier" is an optional setting. It's a unique string which is used to look up a page's thread in the Disqus system. You can put anything there, just make sure it's unique if you're using multiple widgets.

The Disqus widget has 2 color themes: dark and light. This setting is automatic. It will automatically use the dark theme on pages with light backgrounds, and vice versa.
