Configuring Disqus forum overrides at the asset level


Once you have configured the Disqus in Brightspot, new fields appear on the assets on which you have applied the integration. For details, see step 7 Configuring the Disqus integration.

To configure a Disqus forum at the asset level:

  1. In the header, click add.
  2. Click an asset for which you have applied the Disqus integration. A content edit page appears.

    Note
    For more information on how to configure the Disqus integration for certain assets, see step 8 in Configuring the Disqus integration.

  3. Click more_horiz > Overrides.
  4. Expand Disqus.

    Note
    All fields except Disqus Category are auto-generated. No changes are necessary unless you elect to make them.

  5. (Optional) In the Disqus Shortname field, enter the shortname associated with the Disqus forum that you want to use for this asset. By default, this field is auto-generated using the first Shortname entered into Disqus configuration in Sites & Settings. If blank, the Disqus embed will not load.

    Tip
    If you have configured multiple Disqus forums in Brightspot, you can utilize this field to tell Brightspot which Disqus forum to use.

  6. (Optional) In the Disqus Title field, enter a title for the Disqus commenting section to appear on this asset. This field tells the Disqus service the title of the current page and is used when creating the thread on Disqus for the first time. By default, this field is auto-generated using the Headline field of the current asset.
  7. (Optional) In the Disqus Identifier field, enter a unique identifier for your Disqus account. This field tells the Disqus service how to identify the current page. By default, this value is auto-generated using the unique identifier of the asset.
  8. (Optional) In the Disqus URL field, enter a URL for the current page. This field tells the Disqus service the URL of the current page. By default, this value is auto-generated using the URL of the asset.
  9. (Optional) In the Disqus Category field, enter a category to be used for the current page. This field is used when creating the thread on Disqus for the first time. By default, this field is blank.
  10. Complete other fields as necessary and publish the asset. Disqus is now available on the asset.
