This is page contains complex html i.e. javascript, the page must only be edited as HTML. Disqus is a comment as a service web site.
This means that a site developer’s need not develop a comment system, nor a comment authentication system. Some may feel that using Disqus breaks the or weakens the boundaries of the site community. It potentially allows commenters a better management of their identity. The wordpress anti-spam features would not work on discuss comments. Moderation would be through two panels.
Shall I use Disqus for this wiki and or blog? Shall I use it to create a guestbook page on the static part of the site.
I have bookmarked, this article, called Corporate Blogs: Front Page Structure at Neilsen Norman, dated 2010, and Why WordPress’s Native Commenting System Beats Disqus or Livefyre dated 2013. The former discusses the use of summaries, the latter Disqus vs WordPress.
It has plugins for wordpress, with documentation at both Disqus and WordPress sites. Google is as helpful as ever…. I think the wordpress plugin is an alternative to the wordpress commenting system.
Disqus also has a generic solution that I used for a short while on the snipsnap bliki. When I restored the bliki in order to move across to wordpress, I copied some of the content from test page 4, which was where I tested that the Disqus generic solution was working. I thought that the Disqus javascripts broke the snipsnap backup, but obviously not, since the restore worked fine. The comments are still, probably held in the Disqus database.
This would represent the end of the wiki article.

 <script type="text/javascript">
(function() {
    var links = document.getElementsByTagName('a');
    var query = '?';
    for(var i = 0; i < links.length; i++) {
    if(links[i].href.indexOf('#disqus_thread') >= 0) {
        query += 'url' + i + '=' + encodeURIComponent(links[i].href) + '&';
    document.write('<script charset="utf-8" type="text/javascript" src="' + query + '"></' + 'script>');
<div id="disqus_thread"></div><script type="text/javascript" src=""></script><noscript><a href="">View the discussion thread.</a></noscript><a href="">blog comments powered by <span>Disqus</span></a>

and implements as

blog comments powered by Disqus
