    Disqus for WordPress Plugin Gets Full Single Sign-On Support

    Posted on July 16, 2012 by thetylerhayes

    Today we’re happy to announce we’ve released a long-standing update to our WordPress plugin. If you haven’t already, go ahead and download the Disqus WordPress plugin. And a reminder to our awesome developer community: feel free to fork the plugin and help make it even better.

    So what’s new?

    Full Single Sign-On (SSO) Support

    With today’s update, and last month’s silent introduction of a new add-on package — just SSO, for just $99/month — the Disqus WordPress plugin has the most fully-featured, easy-to-integrate Single Sign-On solution available.

    Our plugin now takes full advantage of both WordPress’ and Disqus’ login systems by allowing sites to set their own custom login button, making the login process incredibly seamless for both existing and new visitors.

    And for users who set a website link in their WordPress profile, we now show that website link in their Disqus profile too. Even if they’ve logged-in via their WordPress account.


    Similarly to how we added a live demo of Disqus 2012 to our home page, we’ve added a Screenshots tab to the plugin description. Now everyone can know how Disqus will look and feel in their WordPress environment before even installing it.

    Bug Fixes and Other Improvements

    Both our team and our greatly helpful community of collaborating developers put together a smorgasbord of bug fixes and improvements. See the plugin change log for a full list. We’ve already got a number of great updates lined up for the next plugin release too, so stay tuned for those.

    If you’re on WordPress, download the Disqus WordPress plugin today. And if you’re interested in our new $99/month Single Sign-On package, head over to our For Websites page and fill out the form at the bottom of the VIP Features tab and we’ll be in touch!
