django-disqus 0.3

Release Date: 09-MAR-2010

This release updates django-disqus to use the new DISQUS v1.1 API and cleans up the templatetags and management commands.

Management Commands

The following management commands were renamed:

  • disqus-dumpdata to disqus_dumpdata
  • disqus-export to disqus_export

The old names weren’t valid Python module identifiers. This lead to problems when trying to import them.

The disqus_dumpdata command has two new options:

  • filter: Type of entries (e.g. spam or killed) that should be returned
  • exclude: Type of entries that should be excluded from the response

For further information take a look at the documentation for the disqus_dumpdata command.

The disqus-export-threadedcomments command was removed from django-disqus because the upcoming django-threadedcomments release will rely on the comment extension hooks provided in Django 1.1. This means that the disqus_export command will work just fine when exporting threadedcomments.


The disqus_recent_comments templatetag was removed. If you want to use this or any other widget, go to the Tools section on the DISQUS website. There you can configure the widget and get the Javascript code that is necessary to display it on your website.

The parameters of the disqus_show_comments tag have changed. Previously you could pass the title, url, snippet and shortname. As of this release, it’s only possible to pass the shortname. If you want to change the Javascript variables that the DISQUS comment form uses, take a look at the Configure and override comment system behaviors page in the DISQUS wiki.
