I wanted to see how the Disqus comment block will look in my Ghost installation before pushing it to production, but I couldn't get the
localhost setup working. All I got was "Unable to load Disqus" message :-(.
There are different tutorials on how to get Disqus working on
localhost in Ghost, but none of them worked for me. I've tried the
disqus_dev option but that failed for me.
What actually has worked for me was putting
var disqus_url = 'http://localhost/';
in the Disqus JS snippet. Don't forget to add
localhost (this time without
http://) to your 'Trusted Domains' in Disqus advanced settings.
