On blogs here, can you have others contributors/authors as well, like you can on Wordpress?

Hi Jeanettesozpix,

The only way someone else can edit your site is if you give them your login email and password. Unfortunately we don't yet have a feature where you can setup mulitple logins and passwords to edit the same site.

I'm sorry we can't be of more help in this regard.

That's okay! I just wanted to know what I'm able to do here.

I just had an idea about sharing a blog with others, but obviously, it's not possible here. I'll just carry on with my own blog here, and I can do the other in Wordpress.

Hi Jeanettesozpix,

Even though user's can't make blog posts, they can however make comments to your blog posts.

You can use this service if you want to enable comments on your blog.

Here is how to do this:

1. To get the comment code, your site needs to be published
2. Click on the "Blog Manager" button
3. Click on the "Settings" tab
4. Click on the "Disqus" logo to visit www.disqus.com and register for an account
5. Submit your URL on Disqus
6. Click on Admin --> Tools
7. Copy the "generic code #1"
8. Paste the code back in the dialogue box (Settings) on SynthaSite
9. Preview your page to view the comment feature

You only need to add the code to your site once, and the comment feature will be enabled for all of your posts. You can then login to your Disqus account to moderate any comments.

Note that the comment box will only show up on your published site when you click on one of your post titles and scroll to the bottom of the post.

For full instructions see our tutorial: Blogging with SynthaSite - http://www.synthasite.com/tutorials/b...

Hi Nick,
Thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately at this time we do not have a member registration feature in Yola. This is something that will take a great deal of engineering and will possibly be something we do in the future.
