pipDisqus – Lightweight Disqus Comments


This plugin will remove any of the default WordPress comments features from your site, and replace this with Disqus.

Please note: Disqus comments will not be automatically imported into your WordPress dashboard. Instead, you can continue to moderate your comments via your Disqus moderation page. This plugin will add a quick link to your Disqus moderation page in the WordPress Admin Bar.

Reasons to use this plugin:

  • Simplify your WordPress dashboard by removing the “Comments” admin menu.
  • Easy setup: simply add the Disqus shortname in the settings and you’re done.
  • Comments are NOT imported to WordPress – save server resources and database size.
  • Improved spam protection to keep junk out your site’s database.
  • It has a silly name.


  • Admin Bar Shortcut
  • Settings


  1. Install the plugin (usual methods).
  2. Add your Disqus Shortname to Settings > pipDisqus.

Saves on resources and cuts back on spam by completely replacing WordPress comments with Disqus. Minimalistic settings, perfect.

Been looking into a commenting system that was light weight and this tool has integrated well into our current site: https://www.inboundnow.com/google-analytics-extension-is-pulled-out-of-core/
