Enhance Disqus Comments With Cool Build In Features

Disqus comments one of the popular comment alternative for blogs and websites. Most of blogger rely on Disqus to make their comments more social and it is also stylish. As a blogger I would say Disqus is one of the great tool to enhance commenting system, but literally many of bloggers are not aware of the features offered in Disqus, it because many of them use WordPress plugin and some use native installation step for other blogging platform. So I thought of piling up those details on a post and this is how I started writing this post to help my fellow blogger to blog better.

Tip 1: Login to your Disqus dashboard and navigate to Settings > Customize

Here on the appearance tab upload your blog logo as default avatar. This adds more value to your blog, the reason why I insisted is, it a kind of marketing strategy which help adding the brand tag to your blog or website logo.

Tip 2: On Settings > Moderation you get to see many moderation settings. In those you will see an option Link to comment. As a blogger we get spam comments, but it does not mean that we need to use comment moderation to avoid spamming. There is another way to spot that and that is Link to comments. So clicking on this will ensure comments with link comes under moderation.

Tip 3: If you want to protect your comments with more features enable Askimet features, which can be found under Settings > General. I would say it greatly help blogs on blogger platforms, as there is no such plugin option for blogger platform.

Tip 4: Disqus comes with an option of adding custom CSS to enhance it looks according to your own idea. So if you are good at css, you can create your own style of Disqus comments, even if you don’t have CSS knowledge, you can check out these websites.

  6. What I love about blogs is that they spark an idea in my brain. When that happens, I feel as I need to comment with the hope it may be interesting to some people. Because there are lots of blogs and forums with many points of view, they question your comprehension. It is at these moments when you have valuable insignt other people might not have had, together with the blogger him/herself. I find myself coming back to to your writings only because you have several very good insights and also you have been at this a very long time, that is very inspiring and tells me you know your stuff. Keep triggering imagination in others!
