Disqus setup

    Hi, I've setup the disqus shortname in config.js, but the page still showing the default disqus.

    The site: http://blog.hahow.in

    The shortname: 'hahow'

    We use another theme with 'hahow' shortname and it works perfectly. Not sure why symmetric did not work. Please help, thanks.

    BTW, the image loading seems a little bit lag. Any suggestion?

    Hi!, thank you for contacting us!

    About your questions:

    1.- I tested "hahow" shortname locally and inside your website, and it is seems to be working fine. Screenshot:

    As you see in the screenshot, your disqus plugin's name is "Hahow - Blog", which is correct. Maybe you have some propagation delay (it happens when your dns is not working fast enough).

    I recommend you to use Google DNS and test again: https://developers.google.com/speed/public-dns/docs/using

    2.- Yes! the website is a bit lag, and this is caused by large image files. Screenshot:

    Ghost doesn't have image optimization like Wordpress, so it is a good idea to optimize any image before you upload to the website (you can use Photoshop, Fireworks, or any image editor to optimize them).

    Note: images below 500kb are pretty good to use on websites.

    Hope this may help you!
