How to replace Sibsoft comments system with Facebook or Disqus comments ?

Answer

Note :

* Backup your files before doing any changes.
* All files we will modify are located in the front-end server not in files servers.

Disqus Setup :

1- open the HTML file download1.html with your favorite editor, the file is located in cgi-bin/Templates folder.

2- Search the following line :
<script language="JavaScript" type="text/javascript" src="<TMPL_VAR site_url>/tabber.js"></script>

Above it you will find the following code, we are going to replace it with the Disqus code:
<TMPL_IF enable_file_comments>
<br>
<div style="width:500px;text-align:left;" class="sinput">
<TMPL_INCLUDE comments.html>
</div>
</TMPL_IF>

3- Follow this link ro register with Disqus and get your Disqus shortname : http://disqus.com/comments/register

4- Replace the code we found in Step 4 with the following code:

<br/>
<div style="width:500px;text-align:left;" class="sinput">
<div id="disqus_thread"></div>
</div>
<script type="text/javascript">
/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */
var disqus_shortname = 'YOUR-SHORT-NAME';
var disqus_identifier = '<TMPL_VAR file_code>';
var disqus_url = '<TMPL_VAR download_link>';

/* * * DON'T EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */
(function() {
var dsq = document.createElement('script'); dsq.type = 'text/javascript'; dsq.async = true;
dsq.src = '' + disqus_shortname + '.disqus.com/embed.js';
(document.getElementsByTagName('head')[0] || document.getElementsByTagName('body')[0]).appendChild(dsq);
})();
</script>
