How can I enable Disqus integration so people can leave comments on my Work?
It’s pretty easy! Crevado has built in support for Disqus, a popular and comprehensive commenting system for modern websites.
Got your Disqus account details?
Before you can enable Disqus integration you need to have a Disqus account created and your shortname noted. If you don’t have a Disqus account go here and sign up:
Enter the URL of your portfolio exactly as it appears on the domain box within Crevado settings, e.g. if your Crevado domain is ‘demo’ then your url will be http://demo.crevado.com/
Note: For the purposes your Disqus Site URL, avoid prefixing your domain with www. unless it’s part of your crevado domain name!
Presumably, you will be the primary moderator so choose a Disqus username and password and click continue to create your account.
Once you’ve created your account confirm your Disqus shortname by clicking the admin link:
and then click Settings. Your shortname will be shown in pink:
Remember: Your Disqus shortname and Disqus username are not the same thing and may be different!
Now that you’ve got your Disqus account setup, we need to tie it to your portfolio.
Enabling Disqus Comments with your Crevado Portfolio
From Crevado admin choose settings:
Scroll to the disqus feature box and enter your Disqus shortname to activate the integration. (if you don’t know what a Disqus shortname is see the top section of this article)
Once you’ve entered your shortname just click save and Disqus integration will be activated:
You should verify that the comments system is working by clicking the view portfolio link:
When viewing a Gallery you’ll see the comment system load underneath the main stage.
Can the Comments system be disabled for certain items?
The comments system can be enabled/disabled on a per Gallery basis. To change whether the comment system is enabled for a particular gallery simply select the Gallery from the main Galleries section. Then scroll down thru the Gallery Configuration until you find the Comment setting box.
Here you can enable / disable the comments system for the Gallery in question.
