I'm sorry you are not wanting to use the Yola Blogging Feature. You won't be able to integrate another blogging platform into your Yola site, but if you do build a blog with another entity you could always link to it from your site.

If you would like to let us know some of the features you would like to see in the Yola blogging tool we will be sure to pass them along for consideration in future releases.

Kind Regards,

you can also embed nabble to your site.

if you go 2 and go 2 start a free forum then put a 'name' in then discripton, once it is made you can go to your website in the site builder and then drag and drop an HTML widget into your site and then go to your nabble forum, get the code and then paste it in to your website, press ok , then up date your site!!

i hope this helps!!

Hello Tanveerahmed2k8

I noticed you asked how other can comment on your blog post. Here's how to enable a commenting system for your blog by using Disqus:

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 and register for an account by clicking on "Sign up, free".
5. Register your site in the blue box. Enter your site URL, site name and site short name.
6. Create your Disqus Profile in the green box. Enter your username, password, and email address.
7. Click on continue.
8. Choose your language and any other optional features you'd like to include with your commenting platform. Then click on continue.
9. In the "Choose Install Instructions" box, click on Yola/Synthasite.
10. Copy the code in the #2 box.
11. Go back to your blog manager settings, then paste the code into the box. Then click on Done.
12. When you preview your site and click on the blog title, you may see this message: "This page could not be reached by Disqus. If you are testing locally or on a password-protected page, please use the disqus_developer parameter as detailed here.." - please don't worry about that. You just need to update your site and you will see the comment box working on your published site.

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 log in to your Disqus account to moderate any comments.

Please 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 Yola.

Hi there,

Unfortunatley it is not possible move your posts from Blogger to your Yola blog page. You would need to create the posts again. Or you can simply create a new blog page with Yola with new blog posts and simply link to your old Blog on Blogger.
