    • Cut and paste your URL into the field: Website Name. Include the http or https, your URL should be in this format: http://example.talkspot.com/
        
 
 
Once you have added your website to Disqus you can link them together from the 'Comments Setup'.
 
 
 
 
 
Now that your Disqus account is set up and you've linked it to your blog, lets transfer over those comments. Please follow the instructions below:
 
Follow the prompt that appears after you have linked your Disqus account to your Blog.
 
 
 
Step through the prompts. 
 
Step 1: Generate the export list.
 
 
Step 2: Download the newly created export file. 
 
Step 3: Follow the instructions link provided.
 
When asked to 'Select a Forum', if you have multiple sites on your Disqus account, choose the site that houses your blog page. 
 
Import the Downloaded File. *Note: When you download a file, it helps to select the 'Show in Folder' option so you can easily locate the file for import. This will look differently depending on which browser you are in. 
 
In Google Chrome, the download bar will appear at the bottom of the screen. Click the up arrow to show the options. 
 
 
 
Select 'Choose File', locate the downloaded file and click 'Upload'. 
 
 
 
You will now see the uploaded file with a progress bar. *Note: if the progress bar doesn't move after a minute or so, click on 'All Imports' and then 'Current' and it should refresh itself. 
 
 
 
Open another tab in your browser and visit your blog page. You should now see your comments displayed on your blog articles.
