Disqus development mode

It used to be that you could put Disqus’ comments into development mode by adding var disqus_developer = 1 to the javascript that loads it. This didn’t seem to be working anymore so I emailed their support, and they got back to me very quickly:

Thanks for contacting us. This variable has been depreciated since it is no longer needed –– We recommend creating a new forum shortname which you use for testing/developing. More information on best practices while testing can be found here


If you’re using Sinatrahttp://www.sinatrarb.com/ then take a look at sinatra-disqushttps://rubygems.org/gems/sinatra-disqus, a gem/Sinatra extension to make using Disqus with Sinatra easier.
