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 – save server resources and database size.
  • It has a stupid name.

Reasons NOT to use this plugin:

  • The “Comments” menu item is removed from the WordPress dashboard whilst this plugin is active.
  • There are no plugin options. Simply add your Disqus shortname and that’s it. If you’d like to enable lazy load or edit advanced options, you should use another plugin.
  • Comments are not imported – you will need to moderate your comments directly via Disqus.
  • It has a stupid name.


  • Admin Bar Shortcut
  • Settings


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


Awesome Plugin

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

Working great on Inbound Now
