The Disqus Module for DotNetNuke was originally just something I thought would be fun to try. It was a little side project to waste a little bit of time while taking a look at the benefits of the Disqus platform and service. It’s an incredibly great discussion engine that can be used in a large number of ways. This includes comments of course, but think about anything on a website that requires or can allow people to discuss your content. The possibilities are exciting! It’s been a while since this module has had a useful release of new features, so I am proud to say that you no longer have to wait!
It was nearly a month ago for the first official release of the Disqus Module for DotNetNuke. The initial releases focuses on just getting some minimal functionality out there to gauge interest in the module, and to attempt to get a deeper knowledge of Disqus itself before the deeper levels of integration were attempted. Well, that time has come… Welcome deeper integration!
You may or may not be aware of a highly useful and engaging third party comment platform called Disqus. Disqus was created and founded in 2007 to allow websites to replace their comment engines with one that offers a much simpler and socially enabled alternative. With features like single sign on, centralized comment management and viewing, enhanced spam controls, consistent cross-site standards, and being able to use the same comment identity and information across multiple sites, it’s a no-brainer to want to use Disqus as your comment engine of choice. So, I chose to build a module to integrate it into DotNetNuke.
