Disqus Click Automate Code

For those of you interested in loading the entire Disqus discussion with each post, I have success with the following:

  • Browser: Chrome 
  • Extension for userscript management: tampermonkey 
  • install "Stable" version
  • Open Tampermonkey (usually from Settings->Extensions in Chrome settings)
  • Click on scroll-y thing
  • Erase any "New Code" stuff that auto-populates and paste the following (current version 0.3):

// ==UserScript==
// @grant       GM_setValue
// @grant       GM_getValue
// @grant       GM_registerMenuCommand
// @name        Disqus Click Automate
// @autor       aaferrari@eml.cc, updated by flatline4400@gmail.com (thanks woxxom at greasyfork)
// @namespace   Disqus Click Automate
// @description Automate repetitive clicks on those sites that use Disqus as commenting system.
// @include     *
// @version     0.3
// ==/UserScript==

// This open a dialog to customize some parameters of the script, add the click events in
// the respective radioboxs, checkboxes and set the way that this dialogue disappears from
// the page when the user wants to close

  • Go to "Installed Scripts" tab on Tampermonkey Dashboard and find the script you just installed
  • It needs to have a green circle to the left of it to be active
  • If there's a red square, check the checkbox for that script
  • Choose "Enable" from the drop-down menu at the top of the script list and then "Start"
  • Close your browser and then re-open. Script will be working (if it will work for you).
