Using Disqus (BlogEngine 1.6.1)
If you wish, you can switch BlogEngine to use Disqus comment system instead of built-in.
1. Get Disqus account
You need to create and setup Disqus account first, you can do it here:
2. Select "Moderated by Disqus" option
Log in as admin and navigate to comments/configuration section. Select "Moderated by Disqus" option and then enter your site name (you get one when setting account in step 1). If you want to test it first locally, check corresponding box. Also, with
Disqus you can add comments to pages - just check the box if you want to.
All set! Just go to any post and verify that, instead of regular BlogEngine comments form, you have Disqus control added to the page.
Disqus and BlogEngine comments not linked in any way, currently there is no import/export functionality. You can't use both, you can't move your existing comments to Disqus.
