Disqus Notify plugin for Craft CMS 3.x

Notify authors when a comment is added via Disqus.


This plugin requires Craft CMS 3.0.0-beta.23 or later.


To install the plugin, follow these instructions.

  1. Open your terminal and go to your Craft project:

     cd /path/to/project
  2. Then tell Composer to load the plugin:

     composer require viget/craft-disqus-notify
  3. In the Control Panel, go to Settings → Plugins and click the “Install” button for Disqus Notify.

Configuring Disqus Notify

  1. Navigate to the plugin settings to customize the email subject and body.

  2. Signup for a Disqus account and configure for your site.

Using Disqus Notify

You will utilize the Disqus onNewComment callback to make an AJAX request to the Disqus Notify plugin.

You need to pass the following pieces of data to the plugin:

  1. Disqus Comment Text
  2. Entry ID
  3. Entry Author ID

The URL that you need to POST to is {{ actionUrl("disqus-notify/notify/notify") }}

Here is an example of the plugin in action utilizing jQuery:

	var disqus_config = function () { = '{{ }}';

		this.callbacks.onNewComment = [function(comment) {
			var csrfTokenName = "{{ craft.config.get('csrfTokenName') }}";
			var csrfTokenValue = "{{ craft.request.getCsrfToken }}";
			var data = {
				comment: comment.text,
				entryId: {{ }},
				authorId: {{ }}
			data[csrfTokenName] = csrfTokenValue;

			$.post('{{ actionUrl("disqus-notify/notify/notify") }}', data);

	(function() {  // DON'T EDIT BELOW THIS LINE
		var d = document, s = d.createElement('script');

		s.src = '//';

		s.setAttribute('data-timestamp', +new Date());
		(d.head || d.body).appendChild(s);

Note: you will need to update your Disqus subdomain in this code snippet.
