Integrate Disqus on WordPress programmatically

Posted on August 17, 2018 at 10:17 pm

To integrate Disqus programmatically on WordPress single.php just set:

var disqus_config = function () {
    this.page.url = '<?php echo get_permalink(); ?>';  // Replace PAGE_URL with your page's canonical URL variable
    this.page.identifier = '<?php echo intval(get_the_ID()); ?>'; // Replace PAGE_IDENTIFIER with your page's unique identifier variable
};

This is the full Disqus code to place where you want to show the comments:

<div id="disqus_thread"></div>
<script>
 
//RECOMMENDED CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT AND UNCOMMENT THE SECTION BELOW TO INSERT DYNAMIC VALUES FROM YOUR PLATFORM OR CMS.
//LEARN WHY DEFINING THESE VARIABLES IS IMPORTANT: https://disqus.com/admin/universalcode/#configuration-variables */
 
var disqus_config = function () {
    this.page.url = '<?php echo get_permalink(); ?>';  // Replace PAGE_URL with your page's canonical URL variable
    this.page.identifier = '<?php echo intval(get_the_ID()); ?>'; // Replace PAGE_IDENTIFIER with your page's unique identifier variable
};
 
(function() { // DON'T EDIT BELOW THIS LINE
    var d = document, s = d.createElement('script');
    s.src = '//yourblog.disqus.com/embed.js';
    s.setAttribute('data-timestamp', +new Date());
    (d.head || d.body).appendChild(s);
})();
</script>
<noscript>Please enable JavaScript to view the <a href="https://disqus.com/?ref_noscript">comments powered by Disqus.</a></noscript>

Just replace “yourblog.disqus.com” with the correct string.
