- Return to your WordPress website.
To install the Disqus plugin:
- Log in to WordPress.
- From the Plugins page, search for and install Disqus.
- Activate the plugin.
- Go to Comments > Disqus.
- Sign in with your Disqus account.
- Once you have logged in, select the site you registered with your Disqus account.
- Click Next to complete the set up.
- Go back to your account at Disqus.com.
