Let's talk about how to set-up Disqus on your site or a page, product, etc...
What is Disqus

It's a comment social network.
This service will up users involvement, as they can be notified at each new comment. They can also like comments, respond to a specific comment thread, or even share images. Discover all the advantages of Disqus.

Disqus, is optional on your site !
If you have had a site for years, with many comments, you may not want to lose your comments and. Disqus is an option, you can conserve the inherent comment system of emyspot. It is important to note, that disqus can be activated on the whole site or just certain pages. Example : on new blog posts only).

Disqus on a single article
Meet up in the add-on options (ex : Add-ons > Blog > Posts), click "edit" by the desired post. Scroll down to the plugins, and choose the service Disqus. Add the site address that you created in step 2. The Disqus comment system will be displayed uniquely on your blog's post.
Disqus can be applied in the same way to a web page or a category of pages, but also for the add-ons and different elements of your site (you can activate Disqus on the add-on Videos).
