How to Integrate Disqus With Your Hub

November 12, 2014 Uberflip Customer Success

Disqus is a free commenting tool that can help you turn your Hub into a true community of engaged fans. 

In their own words, "Disqus is a networked community platform used by hundreds of thousands of sites all over the web. With Disqus, your website gains a feature-rich comment system complete with social network integration, advanced administration and moderation options, and other extensive community functions."

You've probably noticed the Disqus integration on our site after our blog posts, videos, SlideShare presentations, and Flipbooks:

Integrating Disqus with your Uberflip Hub is a quick and easy process that should only take you a few minutes to complete. 

Log-in to your account and visit your Hub's Integrations page. Find the Disqus integration and click the blue Connect button.

In the popup that appears, you'll be prompted to Enter your Disqus Shortname. If you know your Disqus Shortname, enter it now and click Connect to finish setting up your integration.

If you do not know what your Disqus Shortname is or you do not have a Disqus account, you can click on the '' link found in the field instructions to be taken to the Disqus website. 

On you can either sign up for an account for your Hub, or if you already have a shortname you'd like to use, you can look up your site details and find your shortname there.  

NOTE:  You must have a site registered with Disqus in order to obtain a shortname and complete the integration with your Hub!

How to find your Site's Shortname in Disqus

To find the Shortname for your account, click on the gear icon in the upper-right hand corner after you log in. Then select 'Admin' to open up the admin page for your Disqus account. 

Click on 'Settings' in the tabs on this page, then look for the 'Shortname' heading. Select and copy the Shortname.

Go back to your Uberflip account, and paste your Shortname into the 'Enter your Disqus Shortname' field. Click 'Connect'.

That's it! You've integrated Disqus into your Hub, and your users will be able to leave comments on your blog posts, videos, SlideShare presentations, and Flipbooks.

To moderate the comments that subsequently appear on your Hub, just log into your Disqus account at

If you've incorrectly used your personal Disqus account username instead of your Hub shortname to integrate, simply disconnect the Disqus integration in your Hub, and re-integrate using your Hub shortname.
