Setting Up Disqus Comments and Facebook Comments on Your Calendar Spuds
Installing the 25Live SharePoint Web Part

25Live Publisher has the capability for users to add Disqus Comments or Facebook Comments to their calendar spuds.  By default, both options are turned off but you are able to disable one or both.

Disqus Accounts and Facebook Apps

To set up Disqus comments, you must first sign up for a Disqus account and choose a short name that identifies the website where you want your comments enabled.

To properly setup up the Facebook comments and make use of the advanced features available with it, you must link your site to a Facebook app.  See the instructions in 25LIve Publisher help for creating a Facebook app, and visit the Facebook App Developer site.  The Facebook app will allow you to blacklist words and moderate content.
