Disqus Comment Users: keep your comments synced!

If you are using Disqus comments, you really should ensure you are keeping your comments 'synced' with Blogger.

What does this even mean?
It means, to put it plainly, that your comments are being published via Disqus but are also being "backed up" to Blogger.

Why should I do this?
You should do this because if you ever take your Disqus comments away, you will have your Blogger comments there behind-the-scenes as backup.  

Who knows, maybe Blogger will get their act together and introduce some awesome comment system and you'll want to go back.  If you ever decide you don't want to use Disqus any more, you obviously don't want to lose your comments now do you??

Let me answer that for you: NO!

(This is why I do not like Intense Debate.  You do not have that option! Use Intense Debate and wish to return to Blogger? SORRY, but your comments are a goner)

So if you have Disqus all installed and working well, here is how to make sure that your comments are and stay synced. 

Log into Disqus and click on your site.

STEP 2: 
Make your way to the TOOLS and then IMPORT/EXPORT area and click on "Blogger" (see below)

When you sync your Disqus comments, you may receive emails from Blogger saying you have a new comment - this is normal and just means the comments are coming over.  This means (as far as I know!) that if you have 1000 comments to sync, you are going to get 1000 emails! WOWSERS!

My advice is to therefore to turn off email notification on your comments from within Blogger until this is complete! Don't say I didn't warn you! ;)

STEP 3: You now want to click on "Enable" in the 'Keep new comments synced' area (see below)
Click for a larger preview
This is where things got interesting for me.  I had 29 comments to sync and it got stuck on number 16.  I clicked the link to re-sync remaining comments but I went around in a big circle and it would not sync them. I waited a day or so and tried again and it was fine (must have been a Disqus glitch at the time). See the orange highlighted bit below.....

You can always contact Disqus for help if this happens to you too and I believe they can fix it.
Obviously if you have a lot of comments it may take a long time. You can check the status of it in this area.


  1. good info. Thanks for sharing :)

      The connections that you make early in your career will take you far. After 20 years it is still true for me. This has been true regarding companies I worked for and those I worked with. All you have written is excellent advice.

  4. Thanks! Hope this helps me fix my problem.

  5. I did this and all my comments that have the correct datestamp in Disqus came over to Blogger with the date of the export, January 20. When I leave Disqus installed the comments show up with the correct date but when I uninstall Disqus the date for each comment is January 20. I'm so frustrated. Do you think you could give me your opinion on correcting this? Should I remove the comments in Blogger and then do a re-import and hope that the dates will be correct OR will I lose the comments if I delete them in Blogger, they don't stay in Disqus?
    Sorry to be rambling.

Unfortunately, I'm trying to go back to Blogger because for months I've been unable to use the comments section in Explorer 9 and Disqus doesn't seem to have a solution. The screen shots are different than what I'm seeing. Has the procedure changed? Thanks.

    God bless you Mum, I will not stop telling the world about your kindness in my life, I am a single mum with kids to look after. My name is Mrs.Rachel Alex, and I am from Singapore . A couple of weeks ago My friend visited me and along our discussion she told me about MRS.IRENE QUERY FINANCE, that they can help me out of my financial situation, I never believed cause I have spend so much money on different loan lenders who did nothing other than running away with my money. I have been in a financial mess for the pass 7 months now,She advised I give it a try so I mailed her and explain all about my financial situation to her, she therefore took me through the loan process and gave me a loan of $180,000.00 at a very low interest rate of 3% and today I am a proud business owner and can now take good care of my kids, If you must contact any firm to get any amount of loan you need with a low interest rate of 3% and better repayment schedule, please contact MRS.IRENE QUERY FINANCE via email{}

  47. Hello Everyone I am Daniel Steve from Texas, USA. I will like to share the goodness of God in my life after so many
    months of trying to get a loan on the internet and was been scammed so i became restless and desperate in getting a
    loan from a legit lender online. But as God would have it, i saw a comment from a friend called William Ken and he talked
    about this legit loan company where he got his loan fast and easy without any stress so he introduced me to a man called
    Mr Mason Diego who controls a firm called Diego Loan Company, So i applied for a loan sum of ($170,000.00USD) with low
    interest rate of 2%, so the loan was approved and deposited into my bank account in less than 48hrs, that was how i was
    able to get back on my feet to keep my broken business running and also to pay off my bills so i am advising everyone of
