Octopress Disqus Plugin Not Working in Chrome

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_script;

to this:

      dsq.src = 'https://' + disqus_shortname + '' + disqus_script;
