Intrigued to get started?

Before anything else, you need to create an account on Disqus.

The next steps should be installing Disqus on your site and acquiring a Disqus Shortname. Just enter your SpringBuilder sitename and a unique URL will be generated for you instantly.

The shortname can be found in the address bar of your browser as example.disqus.com/admin or in your General Site Settings.

Once you've got the code, you've got the keys!
Let's move to your SpringBuilder website's Dashboard and find the Disqus on the Integrations App.

That's exactly where your Disqus Shortname should be pasted.

Once you've added the URL and hit 'Connect', you'll notice a green light indicating the successful integration.

Now, when you have your Disqus installed here, you can move to your site's Edit Mode to make most out of this integration.
All you need to do is add a Disqus Element from the Elements section to the desired area on your page.

In case you haven't connected your Disqus Account yet, you'll get the following box where you can simply add the Shortname mentioned above and get started.

That's it! Please click 'Preview' to view your site in Public Mode and see the result.

Alignment - To change the alignment settings of the Button, click on the ‘Alignment’ icon you’ll have three options available: top, center, bottom, just choose the one, you prefer.

Visibility Settings -  It enables making a certain Element/Block appear on Desktop, Mobile only, or everywhere by default. Simply hit Visibility Settings and choose the desired option from the dropdown menu to get full control over the Visibility of the elements on your page.

Next comes Location visibility. Include or exclude specific cities or countries or set the appropriate Custom IP.

Mind the Session visibility as well. The latter one, allows to make certain elements visible only to the logged in users of your website.
