Help!
Q: I need to know how my visitors will leave a response to my blog that I created? I see no place for them to post? I did add that widget, but I see nothing for them to add to my blog?

Hi William

Right now SynthaSite does not have it's own comments widget, but we have integrated with a third party service, Disqus (pronounced "discuss"). 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.
