Update on Disqus comment counts

Yesterday I posted an article on how to add Disqus comment and noted I was hoping to find a tag to get the Disqus shortname. I haven’t found the correct tag/variable yet, but there is already a method to at least make the template dynamic.

Blot.im allows you to create global variables for your template. I created a variable named disqus_shortname and gave it the value of sharedmemorydump.

Global variables

The line loading the Disqus count script in the template footer.html can now be updated from

<script id="dsq-count-scr" src="//sharedmemorydump.disqus.com/count.js" async></script>

into

<script id="dsq-count-scr" src="//{{disqus_shortname}}.disqus.com/count.js" async></script>

making it more dynamic.
