Alongside Facebook, you have the option of using Disqus, a free and minimal commenting system, on your gallery. 

To connect your Disqus account to your gallery, you need a "Disqus shortname"

  3. Enter your information and click on the "Create site" button.
  4. Once your site has been created, you will be pushed to your Admin page. Select Settings from the top of the page and the select the site you created when prompted.


  5. Select the General tab found in the menu to the right, and find and copy your shortname from the page.
