How do I set up the disqus public inbox thing in my socialwhois profile?
February 4, 2009
Add socialwhois.com/[your_nickname] as new site to your disqus account. Then URL like something.diqus.com (you choose it at previous step while adding site to disqus) is your Community Code — fill this field in your SocialWhois profile. That's all. (
Exactly! What would be nice is someone who can help me with some screen shots or yet better a screencast for different features, anyone? :) -
@directeur, I can make screenshots for tutorial on this feature. I would do a screencast but I don't know any convenient tools... By the way, it would be great to make public inbox creation fully automatic. Though I doubt if Disqus allows to add new website to profile via api (if it were so I'm sure it would be implemented already =)). -
Anton, I'd really LOVE to see a tutorial about it, so please go ahead and create one. Regarding the screencast, what plateform are you on? There's nice software for this kind of stuff for OSX I think. And yes, I looked at DISQUS API and that's a little bit hard to automatize stuff :( -
Unfortunately, I'm on Windows XP. Anyway, screenshot tutorial is almost done (needs adding some text now). You can grab it here.
Anton, this is great! Thanks a lot! Can I copy it and add it to SocialWhois? (and link back to your blog?) -
I'm glad to help, directeur =) No need to link back, just copy. And feel free to edit it in any way (I know my English sometimes sucks). I hereby grant you rights to do everything with this. =) Funny, now it seems like there's no way to delete "example_user" account from Disqus I created while making tutorial =) -
That's very very über kind ! Thanks a lot! I hope to return the favor someday :) -
!ha! i *could not* figure out how to enable this on the Disqus side until i saw Anton's screenshots. thanks! BTW - dropped a not of thanks in Anton's Public Inbox, too. -
Thanks, Anton, for the screenshot tutorial. Much appreciated. -
