Disqus and RecentComments Widget

Sep 14, 2010 at 10:27 PM

I'm just wondering if there is any plan to update the RecentComments Widget to take advantage of Disqus Integration.  I'm still using an older skin (arthemia) and while I've updated everything else to get counts from Disqus, recent comments are still showing pre-Disqus comments.

I'm going to look into the code to see what it would take to do it myself, but I wanted to see if it's already being worked on.  Thanks for the great product guys!

Well, its been quite a while since your original post, but I'm guessing a few other people may have had this problem.

I just recently updated to Disqus, and wanted this functionality, so I wrote a widget that writes some JavaScript that brings in recent comments (and a few other things if you'd like) from Disqus.

Its on the gallery at: http://dnbegallery.org/cms/List/Widgets/DisqusCommentsSummary

You can see it in action at: http://www.bloodforge.com/

BTW, this is my first NuGet project, so hopefully I didn't mess anything up.  The code is in the zip...
