WordPress – Disqus WordPress plugin not counting up comments correctly


I'm running WordPress 3.4 and Disqus 2.72.

I have a problem – every time I write up a comment I find Disqus doesn't count it up.

For example:

On the list of blog entries it displays 0 comments

enter image description here

When you open up the blog entry it displays 3 comments

You can find this at my website: http://www.mac-nutrition.com/category/blogs/

So far I've added the following code to my theme's functions.php file but it hasn't really helped (right at the end):

// Disqus: Prevent from replacing comment count
remove_filter('comments_number', 'dsq_comments_text');
remove_filter('get_comments_number', 'dsq_comments_number');
remove_action('loop_end', 'dsq_loop_end');

I have also tried using the Web Ninja Comment Fixer (http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/web-ninja-comment-count-fixer/) but with no success.

Here are my Disqus settings at the moment:

Many thanks in advance.

Best Solution

Try enabling the 'Comment Counts' checkbox under Advanced Options in the Disqus plugin. This will output Disqus JavaScript in the footer and should fix this.

If that doesn't work, this may be caused by your current theme or a plugin. You can test this by temporarily reverting to the default WordPress theme. If that doesn't fix this, try disabling all plugins except for Disqus.
