Can not enable disqus comment system

hello i’m trying to deploy disqus comment system on my website but all request rom disqus is blocked by bot fighter

An ip access list should address that

I searched :search: for “ip access list” this is the best thread

Just to add a note as I am also using Disqus on a WordPress website, they might appear as some challenged or blocked firewall events at CF dashboard.

I can see some as:

Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; https://disqus.com)
DisqusAdstxtCrawler/0.1 (+https://help.disqus.com/en/articles/1765357-ads-txt-implementation-guide)
dproxy/1.0 (+https://disqus.com/humans.txt)
34.195.25.237
AS14618 AMAZON-AES

However, if any of those request are being challenged or blocked, you could find more details about which service did they trigger and got that result in the Cloudflare dashboard → WAF → Overview for the past 24hours or so. Once you find them, click on a particular one to find more details about it (user-agent, IP, HTTP version …).

Nevertheless, it might be that you’d have to find a way to either allow/whitelist the IPs or the IP range, or even the ASN which isn’t really the best scenario to do so if there would be some “bad actors” which would abuse their network/servers and then send harmful requests to your website which wouldn’t be triggered at all and bypass :thinking: in the WAF → Tools → IP Access Rules.
