I have a blog with Blogger. I used Disqus before and there are a lot of comments on that. However now I want to use Google+ comments on Blogger because I use Google+ a lot. But I cannot find a solution to use both on Blogger at the same time.

I found other solutions to use both Blogger default comments and Google+ comments but not Disqus. How can I do that?

  • Are you talking about your own Blogger blog, or using your Disqus/Google+ account on other people's blogs? Commented Oct 21, 2014 at 9:57

Install Disqus to Blogger as you normally would:

  1. Login to Disqus
  2. Add Disqus To Your Site
  3. Register site and add the provided widget code to your Blogger site.

Then, add Google+ commenting to Blogger by editing two multiline sections of the HTML template:

  1. Blogger ➜ Dashboard ➜ Template ➜ Html editor
  2. Replace the code block of

      <b:includable id='comment_picker' var='post'>...</b:includable>
    

    with

        <b:includable id='comment_picker' var='post'>
      <b:if cond='data:post.forceIframeComments'>
        <b:include data='post' name='iframe_comments'/>
        <b:if cond='data:post.showThreadedComments'>
          <b:include data='post' name='threaded_comments'/>
        <b:else/>
          <b:include data='post' name='comments'/>
        </b:if>
      <b:else/>
        <b:if cond='data:post.commentSource == 1'>
          <b:include data='post' name='iframe_comments'/>
        <b:else/>
          <b:if cond='data:post.showThreadedComments'>
            <b:include data='post' name='threaded_comments'/>
          <b:else/>
            <b:include data='post' name='threaded_comments'/>
          </b:if>
        </b:if>
      </b:if>
    </b:includable>
    
  3. Replace the code block of

      <b:includable id='threaded_comments' var='post'>...</b:includable>
    

    with

    <b:includable id='threaded_comments' var='post'>
    <div id='comment-header'>

      <div class='choice'>Comment With Your Choice</div>
    <image id='comments-gplus' src='http://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-wnTb7SHAGEE/UXVi6xoHXAI/AAAAAAAAILY/6vx5Em5w8MI/s50/plus_off.png' title='view Google+ comments'/>
    </div>
    <div id='comment-zone'>
      <div class='comments' id='comments'>
        <a name='comments'/>

        <div class='comments-content'>
          <b:if cond='data:post.embedCommentForm'>
            <b:include data='post' name='threaded_comment_js'/>
          </b:if>
          <div id='comment-holder'>
             <data:post.commentHtml/>
          </div>
        </div>

            <data:post.noNewCommentsText/>
          </b:if>
        </p>
    
        <b:if cond='data:showCmtPopup'>
          <div id='comment-popup'>
