A little while ago, we have updated our blogging system to let you blog like a pro; today, we are announcing integration with the DISQUS commenting system. DISQUS created a blog commenting system which includes threaded conversations, user profiles, blog trackback URLs and much more and then turned it into a widget, much like MyRealPage did with its Listings product. MyRealPage blogs have had built-in comments from the start, but if you would like to take it up a notch, you can easily enable DISQUS comments. All it takes is creating a free “COMMENTS”, profile here and enabling the setting in your Blog weblet. You will need to copy-and-paste the widget code into the Blog Weblet settings (don’t forget to publish). The whole procedure should take you 5-10 minutes. After this, MyRealPage will automatically “inject” DISQUS comments instead of the built-in ones. If you had comments submitted via the built-in system, don’t worry, they will still display, even after you switch on the DISQUS system.

In your list blog view, the DISQUS will insert the number of comments into the Comments link.

list-view-comments

 

And in the blog detail view, an entirely different blog comment form and threaded comment view will be presented:

detail-view

 

[UPDATE]: QUICK HOW-TO:

You will need to create a “Comments” profile with DISQUS here. When finished you will be taken to the “Install Instructions” screen. Choose “Universal Code” to access your “embed code”:

universal-code

HINT: if you already have an account with DISQUS, or ever need to find this place again; Click on “Overview” in the top right corner under your profile name. Then, click “DISQUS Comments –> Go to”, then hover over the website dropdown in the top right corner and choose “Install Instructions”.

In the Blog Weblet settings, enable the Comment Options and copy-and-paste the DISQUS “embed code”:

disqus-settings

Does anyone use or would like to use JS-KIT Echo? Would you like us to integrate with their commenting system as well?

Have ideas or suggestions? Post your comments here or drop us a line at support-<at>-myrealpage.com.

We hope you will enjoy these new updates.

I already had a Disque profile set up as a commenter of other people's blogs so I have to go in manually through my already established account and ask to be set up my blog there. They are asking if I am using the following platforms:
* WordPress
* Blogger
* Tumblr
* MovableType

# Contributed by third party users of Disqus. More Platforms

* Drupal
* Joomla
* Squarespace
* Yola/SynthaSite
* DokuWiki
* Storytlr
* Sweetcron
* Sandvox
* chi.mp
OR
* Universal Code

Which Do I select for MyRealPage?

Tiffany, you will need to select "Universal Code".

Thanks for pointing out this omission. I have updated the blog post. Let me know if I can make any information in the post clearer.
