[Solved] Disqus causing admin panel issues in wordpress

Disqus comment system was causing javascript errors, which in chrome console looked something like this:

Uncaught Syntax error, unrecognized expression: [href=edit-comments.php?page=disqus]

It caused unmovable widgets, screen-options didn’t open and other related javascript issues in admin panel.

After some researching it turns out, there’s a simple fix.

In /wp-content/plugins/disqus-comment-system/disqus.php, find:

href=edit-comments.php?page=disqus

and replace it with:

href=”edit-comments.php?page=disqus”

Cheers
