Preview issue with Disqus

We are experiencing a problem with Disqus commenting when users preview an entry prior to publishing. When previewing ahead of time it shows the wrong comments. If we don't preview it works fine. I think it has to do with the fact that the preview url is different than the live url as shown in the thread below--the preview url uses the entry_id. Have you seen this? Any way around this?

    Hi Jim,

    This is not something we have encountered and seems to be related to the way Disqus uses a page's URL as a unique identifier.

    BWF uses the standard EE template_group/template/entry_title (or ID) for previewing. If you are using Structure or Pages and have different URLs I can see this could cause the issue above.

    One option could be to hide Disqus while previewing. You can do this using the {is_bwf_preview} BWF template tag.

    Best wishes,

    I think I've got it figured out.
