I’m new to Octopress platform for Blogging, but so far I think is great and simple.
Creating my first post I felt so excited, as when you discover a new treasure or a secret path in your favorite game. But everything at the beginning is not going to be smooth. My first problem was that my post weren’t displaying the Disqus comments, that are a very common system for comments in the blog community.
After hours of searching the web and reading lot of post about the topic I had a goodunderstand of how to integrated them.
So I thought of sharing my experience:
Fisrt you have to register you site in Disqus, you will receive a short code. After that go to your
_config.yml file inside your project and add it.
disqus_short_name: ***************** disqus_show_comment_count: false
After that make sure that you allow comments in your post. Inside
source/_posts/ there will be all your post, and on the top are some configuration :
--- layout: post title: "File rename" date: 2014-04-13 18:48:47 +0200 tags: ruby ---
And that’s it, or wasn’t ?
But it didn’t work, I went on a quest for solving this.
Octopress uses the
liquid syntax for loading the different layouts, reading the post layout inside
source/_layouts/_posts you will see that load a file call
I looked for it and found it, and saw this:
Felt a little weird, that’s not what you expect, searching in the wide Internet some people talked about another file
disqus.html inside the
once there the code felt more appropiated. Copying that inside
the problem solve.
Hope I could help.
