What's new

System requirements

EPiServer CMS 8 and later version.

MVC and WebForms sites are supported.

Installing add-ons from Visual Studio

Starting from this version, Disqus for EPiServer packages can be installed from Visual Studio.

Make sure http://nuget.episerver.com/feed/packages.svc/ is added as a NuGet source and episerver.packaging@installationMode is set to Code in web.config. See details in developer guide.

You can find packages by searching for "disqus".

Disqus packages

Add-ons are installed under /modules site directory. Disqus comments configuration UI add-on is deployed under /modules/_protected sub-folder since it is protected add-on and should be accessed only by the authorized users within WebEditors or WebAdmins roles by default.

Folder structure

Upgrading Disqus add-ons to version 1.2.0

First of all, upgrade website to EPiServer 8.

Upgrading add-ons from Visual Studio

  1. Make sure installationMode is set to Code: <episerver.packaging installationMode="Code">
  2. If the installationMode was set to UI you need to run the cmdlet Convert-EPiAddons in the Package Manager Console, it will convert any existing add-ons installed via UI to Visual Studio format.
  3. Remove Duk.EPiServer.Disqus.* assemblies in /bin and /modulesbin directories. Remove /modules/Duk.EPiServer.Disqus and /modules/_protected/Duk.EPiServer.Disqus.UI folders.
  4. Make sure http://nuget.episerver.com/feed/packages.svc/ is added as a NuGet source in Visual Studio.
  5. Install Disqus comments 1.2.0 packages via Visual Studio. Overwrite all existing files in Disqus add-on folders if asked.

Upgrading add-ons from the user interface

  1. Make sure installationMode is set to UI: <episerver.packaging installationMode="UI">
  2. To install add-on packages, the user needs to be a member of the PackagingAdmins user group, and must have access to the EPiServer UI.
  3. Navigate to Add-ons in global navigation menu and update Disqus comments add-ons in Updates section.

    I used Disqus integration for EPiServer 8 however I got the error when I change the url for the page, for example for blog\blog-old to blog\blog-interesting, I comment on this page, I go to https://disqus.com/by/ and check the comments there, when I click to the link for this page, I redirect me to the old one blog\blog-old. Did I miss anything?

    Hi I am trying to Upgrade my episerver site to latest Version via nuget. It fails because of the disqus Version. When can we expect a Version that is supported for latest Version of episerver.
