Disqus Website January 8, 2014 at 11:23 pm #1593126 timethiefMember We can’t instal Disqus on any free hosted WordPress.com blog. This is a multiuser blogging platform. Our blogs are not free standing. There is no FTP access to free hosted WordPress.com blogs and we bloggers cannot install any plugins. There is no upgrade you can purchase that will provide FTP access and the ability to install plugins, upload themes, and/or edit templates and themes in a free hosted WordPress.com blog. http://en.support.wordpress.com/ftp-access/ http://en.support.wordpress.com/themes/adding-new-themes/ http://en.support.wordpress.com/plugins/ To use plugins you must hire a web host and then set up your own WordPress.org install.

So work with what you have fellow site/blogger admins, WP handles comments fair enough… Author Posts The topic ‘Disqus Plugin’ is closed to new replies.
