disqus styling comments text

Hi,

Is it possible to style Disqus comments box without having to upgrade to Premium or VIP. I’ve tried everything to change the colour of the text to black or grey but it stays on the default white text. That’s fine on a dark background but if i want to use a white background the text disappears.

I’ve tried the Freeway comments action and instructions from DTP2’s website but still no luck http://www.dtp2.nl/disqus-freeway-pro.html

I found this post too http://justcantdescribeu.tumblr.com/post/15557256844 but there doesn’t seem to be an Appearance tab or custom CSS box with the standard free Disqus.

Thanks for your help

If you want to style the color of the text use this code:

#dsq-content { font-family: Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif; font-size:12px; color: #5D3E19 }

See the result in action here: http://tarrels.eu/faq.html

Can you post a link to your page.

You should be able to add some style markup to the Before section of your page to do this.

Add this into Page>Html Markup in the before section

<style type="text/css">
<!--
.post-content .post-message p {
color: black !important;
}
-->
</style>

Try this instead

<style type="text/css">
<!--
.post-message {
color: black !important;
}
-->
</style>

Maybe mine doesn’t work anymore because you are using the new 2012 Disqus?

Just to add to this and to clarify that you do not actually need to add any markup styling if you have created a p tag for your document. The color attribute in your p tag will be applied to the Disqus text for you.

Hi Mog,

It looks like you’ve got some styling or a theme applied in your Disqus settings that’s overriding anything you put in Freeway. Go to your Disqus account, then to the Settings tab, then the Appearance tab and remove anything from the Custom CSS box at the bottom of the page (or change your theme back to the default one).

Ok I’ve switched of 2012 Disqus, and the Appearance tab is now showing. I have removed the styling from the custom css on the Appearance tab (which was set to black text .dsq-comment-text {color: #000000;} so I’m not sure if that was affecting it anyway. I’ve removed the styling David suggested

There are only two themes. Narcissus and Houdini. I can’t switch both off at the same time. Not sure which is the default white text shows on both of them.

The color attribute in my p tag is grey not white. Still no luck! Very strange. Not sure what else I can do apart from start again!

Thanks

I’d recommend getting in touch with Disqus to see if they can help.

Have you tried adding styling in the Custom CSS section in Appearance, Settings

Try this

.dsq-comment-text p { color: black !important; }

Hi David,

I just added the code you suggested (.dsq-comment-text p { color: black !important; }) and it’s working!

Thanks so much for your help. And thanks everybody else too for all your suggestions. I love Freeway Talk!

Best wishes

Trying to style the text on a disqus. Where can I find the Custom CSS section in Appearance, Settings mentioned in this thread?

Thanks

Unfortunately Disqus has changed things and the level of control that was available has been lost. It is now much more difficult to make appearance changes beyond the Light/Dark themes
