Disqus Plugin

The Disqus plugin allows site visitors to comment on individual pages using an AJAX-based commenting system. The downside of this plugin is that comments are not stored locally.

Activating and Installing

In order to set up the Disqus plugin, you first need to go to and set up a forum with your domain name. You will be able to choose a forurm name.

To install the plugin, enter your virtualenv and load the source::

(pyenv)$ pip install -e hg+

This will also register a plugin entry point, so you now should be able to add the following to your WDMMG .ini file::

wdmmg.plugins = disqus <other-plugins> = YOUR_DISQUS_NAME

After clearing your cache and reloading the web server, comments should now be available on package pages and on the home page.
