Become a beta tester of early releases to the Disqus for WordPress plugin. You'll get an early preview of new features we're developing before everyone else. With your feedback and testing, you are shaping the future of our WordPress plugin for over 200k sites. You can learn more about the beta plugin in our announcement post.

Current Beta Release Version: 3.0

  • Improved Comment Syncing - Comments are now synced back to your WordPress database using a more reliable webhook method instead of wp-cron. It also supports edited comments and different comment states (e.g. approved, pending, deleted).  
  • Automatic Installation - Install Disqus on your WordPress site and set up comment syncing without having to manually create and configure an API application.
  • Redesigned plugin settings page - Streamlined layout and various UX improvements to plugin configuration page so that the most useful settings are easily accessible. 
  • Disqus shortcut links in WordPress Admin - Access Disqus via the top toolbar in WordPress when viewing any page on your site and logged-in. Disqus is also now a top-level menu item in the sidebar navigation, replacing the Comments page.
