Disqus Revamps its Look and Improves Integration

We’ve mentioned Disqus here on ReadWriteWeb numerous times. You can even preview Disqus’ popular commenting system across numerous personal and major blogs. It’s been taking off since it hit the scene with advocates such as Steven Hodson and Louis Gray. Now, they’re taking their platform to the next level with a new look and improved integration.

Fresh Redesign

There are numerous updates to the Disqus site design. As of today, Disqus has went from this:

to this:

You’ll notice that there is an entirely new layout and color scheme for everything. However, one thing fans of Disqus will appreciate is the emphasis that has been placed on the most important aspects of the service. For example, there’s a lot more emphasis in the site design on management options for comments and threads. It’s a lot easier to jump directly to the original comment’s link and options that used to appear hidden are much more noticeable now.

A Shift in Perspectives

The site has also shifted to the user as the focal point instead of the sites that are being managed using Disqus. This could be due to the fact that users are starting to sign up to the Disqus service to claim their comments, but not integrate their commenting system into their blogs. In doing so, the profile page for Disqus users has an entirely new meaning and design. The profile page will now serve as a comment blog for users and the redesign only serves to confirm the shift.

Much More Under the Hood

Disqus as also released new APIs for developers to allow for deeper and better Disqus apps and integrations. New platform integrations include:

  • SEO friendly comments

  • Automatic data sync between Disqus and the local database

  • Seamless import/export of old and new comments

  • Comment moderation from the WordPress Admin

Disqus now hosts comments for over 30,000 websites. With a substantial amount of growth and backing from numerous major hitters including Robert Scoble and two writers from ReadWriteWeb, we expect to see more great things from Disqus in the future!
