Modules: Publisher Module with Disqus

Posted by: insraqon 2011/2/13 9:30:00 7925 reads Publisher is one of the best article module for XOOPS. Many websites are using it. However, it still uses the old-fashioned XOOPS comment system, which is not quite user-friendly.

I was working on some projects that uses Publisher, and I decided to integrate Disqus service to Publisher, to give it a modern look.

The modified version is based on latest SVN check-out version (checked out on 2011-2-13) and is quite stable according to my test on XOOPS 2.5.

To use this module, you have to:

1. Register an account on Disqus.com
2. Add a website, and remember the “short name”
3. Open publisher/templates/publisher_footer.htm and replace
var disqus_shortname 'example'

with your own short name.

The result looks like this:
