Why is Disqus not loading in my course?

You may see the following error message from Disqus when viewing a Disqus lesson:

'We were unable to load Disqus. If you are a moderator please see our troubleshooting guide.'

If so, you can find Disqus' troubleshooting guide here.

The most likely culprits are 'Disqus is being loaded on a non-trusted domain', or 'Disqus is being loaded on a different domain than you registered'. To fix this, you will need to set up your Thinkific site as a trusted domain by adding either, or your custom domain if you're using one (e.g.,, to your list of trusted domains on Disqus (here's how).

If you're still having issues after working through Disqus' troubleshooting guide, then please let us know.
