Has anyone implemented Disqus for the blog? I see there is an ajaxcomments user control, I'm assuming doing a different commenting system would just implement another user control. Just wondering if anyone has started anything like this before I take a crack.
Yes, I know Lee Kelleher has been working on something disqus-ish, may need to check with him about that... twitter is @leekelleher or else wait for him to get back to you on this post.
Cool, I won't be able to get at it soon, but I do want to look into it.
I am going to use Disqus on my new project, just signed up for an account and got a test page with their module on it up and running, looks quite nice. Will spend a couple of hours this week trying to figure out how to customize it. Reason for using Disqus here is that we don't need authenticated users for anything else but commenting, so by using Disqus we don't have to worry about the whole member stuff in Umbraco (which is easy enough to put on as it is, however not as easy as not doing it at all ;).
If you have specific questions you need answers for with regards to the integration please let me know.
The only possible issue I can see so far is the association between comments and the page they are made on. I'm thinking about someone changing the node name of an article which means the url changes which might lead to Disqus not being able to associate the comments properly. They have an API though so maybe one needs to hook up into that upon node publish. Well, I'll find out soon enough. ;)
Sasha / Lee / Nick - I was thinking of using disqus too, and was wondering how you got on with it?
it's working perfectly well for our site, have played around with it a bit more and it's just superb (jQuery.com is using it as well I've seen!). The really cool thing is that it's pretty much stand alone and you don't really have to do much to get it going. Their API is quite okay as well, you could for instance write a usercontrol that gets comments back from disqus and displays them in the Umbraco back office. Anyway, easiest is probably to just try it out - get an account, get an empty Umbraco installation up and put it on a content type. Obviously there are some restrictions as to flexibility, but it does what it says it does and that pretty well.
I have just tried to implement disqus onto my blog and nothing shows up?
This is my code
Can someone help me? The maco is working fine so I know that not the issue
I tried to get Disqus comments going tonight, but it's not working.
