Integrates DISQUS comment system with Plone.

collective.disqus integrates DISQUS comment system with Plone.


Default Plone discussion mechanism doesn't have nice panel to administer comments. It's hard to find new comments. It's not possible to block posts with links or some other unwelcome contents.

There is few products that tries to fill up this gaps (quintagroup.plonecomments, collective.discussionplus, EasyCommenting).

In clean Plone commenting is allowed only for authenticated site members. This can be of course also widen (plone.openid, AnonymousCommenting, quintagroup.plonecaptchas).

Installation and proper configuration of so many plugins will take some time and functionality will not be full.

But on the web there are much more specialized tools for commenting:

This comments system can be easyly integrated with sites - user just need to create account and add some special code into his website.

I use DISQUS because:

  • it was ease to integrate
  • it's easy to manage comments and threads
  • has clean admin panel
  • it's free, without adverts
  • look & feel is similar to Plone's
