About the Disqus Orchard Module
The Disqus module provides an easy way to integrate Disqus comments on your Orchard CMS website. The module shows Disqus threads in your pages and let your users interact through your site.
Integrating the Disqus module into your site, requires two steps.
- Register your website on Disqus register page.
- Install and configure the Disqus Module in Orchard
Register your website on Disqus
This first step is to register your website in the Disqus register page, and create a new Disqus account to manage the content. Make note of the Website Shortname, needed to configure the module in Orchard.
Optionally, you can also request an API Secret key by registering an application. That key is required by the Orchard module to sync comments from Disqus.
Install and configure the Disqus Module in Orchard
There are two ways to install the Disqus module.
