Did you experienced that Disqus plugin for Octopress is not working in the Chrome browser? By not working I mean that you can see the “Comments” heading but not the actuall field to provide any comments.
Problem is that my website is using
https:// and not
http:// protocol, and Chrome will prevent that any third party website is openned using
http:// urls. You can notice this prevention in Chrome with small shield icon displayed at the end of the url text field.
Fix is rather simple. Locate
source/_includes/disqus.html file in your octopress folder, and modify line 17 from this:
dsq.src = 'http://' + disqus_shortname + '.disqus.com/' + disqus_script;
dsq.src = 'https://' + disqus_shortname + '.disqus.com/' + disqus_script;
