How To Add Comments With Disqus
Tumblr recently implemented a native commenting system on its blogs, but replies are limited to the site’s users, only show up on the Dashboard, and only work for primary blogs. Luckily, there is an easy way to add comments that anyone can use via a third-party provider: Disqus.
- After signing up for a free account at disqus.com, go to the Disqus Dashboard and click +Add next to Your Sites.
- Enter your Tumblr URL, blog name, and create a Site Shortname. You can skip the Disqus install instructions.
- Go to tumblr.com/customize. Click Appearance, and enter the shortname you just created in the Disqus Shortname field.
- Click Save or Save + Close on the upper right.
