I have several pages that are all part of the same topic, and I would like them to use the same comment thread on Disqus. I am using the following code to pull the custom identifier from a custom field:
The code is displaying the value from the custom field correctly, however, the Disqus plugin is still using the page ID as the identifier when I inspect the page code. Meaning each page still uses its own comment thread.
I have tried placing the code in several different places: just before the comments_template(); code, in header.php in various places (before/after wp_head), and in footer.php in various places (before/after wp_footer).
Everything I've read makes it sound as simple as adding the identifier code before the embed.js call for Disqus. I feel like I may be missing something special that needs to be done. Is it possible something else is interfering with it? Everything else is working as expected.

The site I'm working on isn't live until this issue is fixed, but I can set it live if viewing the whole site code will help.
