Adding Disqus comments on WordPress, let’s free from spam

Today, I got pretty interesting comment. Here it is.

wordpress spam comment

What a comment is.

Actually I got a lot of spam comments looks like real.

I can tell many comments are posted on my blog from this guy.

So I have decide not to use WordPress Comment system anymore. And transfer to Disqus comments.

Here’s how to.

  1. Go to plugins > Add a new > search for Disqus. Install and activate it.
  2. You need to have Disqus account to set up.Wordpress Disqus plugin setupWordpress Disqus plugin setup
  3. Start to use comment.

But here’s some hidden effort.

First I reinstalled Disqus comment plugin, it didn’t let me reinstall and says “Same directory already exists”. So I opened FTP and go to wp-content > plugins folder and delete disqus-comment-system folder manually.

It didn’t allow me to delete the folder initially. Only after delete inside several child folders first, I could delete the parent folder. If you know the way, it is simple. Otherwise it takes sometime to figure out like me…

I hope this is helpful tip.

My blog is now free from spams. Please comment if you are human.

Update:

After enable Disqus comments, “Comments are closed” message is displaying.

To hide this, I installed “remove comments are closed” plugin.
