This plugin integrates a threaded comment system provided by the online service Disqus. JavaScript is required to see the comments inline, when no JavaScript is available a link to the Disqus page is provided.

Download and Installation

Search and install the plugin using the Extension Manager. Refer to Plugins on how to install plugins manually.



The plugin can be configured through the Config Manager. You need to register a short name at Disqus and set it in the shortname option. For local testing enable the devel option.

Syntax and Usage

Simply add the following macro where you want to have the comment form and the comments displayed:


Then, go to the Configuration menu and add your Disqus short name to the configuration.

Alternatively, you can add your Disqus short name inline:

~~DISQUS shortname~~


Adding comments to every page

If you want Disqus comments on all pages in your wiki, it is easier to just call the plugin from your template. Add the following code in your template's main.php where you want the comments to appear:

global $ACT;
if($ACT == 'show'){
    $disqus = &plugin_load('syntax','disqus');
    if($disqus) echo $disqus->_disqus($shortname);
