S5 Disqus Comments
This tutorial will explain how to install and configure the S5 Disqus Comments plugin.
The S5 Media Player is a very powerful, responsive, free to use, html5 audio and video player that will work on any device! It is based on the MediaElement html5 script, and comes loaded with features! Because this player is html5 based that means it will work on all devices, including Apple products. Setup is a breeze, with absolutely no programming knowledge needed at all.
Note - Many of our club products contain specific styling for our extensions. These styles cannot be transferred from one product to another; they are integrated into the design. The same extension is used on all installations, the themes themselves contain the styling overrides. If a particular theme does not include unique styling for a particular extension, then the default style is used.
Be sure to read the tooltips and other descriptions in the backend of this extension. There are a lot of tips and further information found in these areas.
The first thing you'll need to do is install the plugin. Once you have it downloaded it just follow the below tutorial if you need help installing the plugin into Joomla. Because this is a plugin you will only need to follow steps 1 through 3 on the tutorial, and then continue with the rest of the tutorial on this page.
2. Next you will need to signup for an account on disqus.com
You can register for an account at: https://disqus.com/profile/signup/
Once you have created an account you will need to register it to be able to use the account on your website. https://disqus.com/admin/create/
Once you are registered locate your "shortname" under Admin/Setup in the disqus user interface. This will be used in the plugin's backend.
3. Next you will need to setup the options in the admin
Go to the Plugin Manager in the backend of Joomla under Extensions / Plugins:
Once you are on the Plugin Manager page search for "S5 Disqus Comments" and click on its title to enter the configuration screen.
- Most of the configuration options have to do with where you would like the comments and links to appear. For example the category setting lets you enable the comments only for the selected categories, the same is true for the menu setting.
The first setting in the plugin's admin is "Disqus Shortname", you will enter your shortname that you created in Step 2 above in this area here, to link comments specific to your account.
