Yola can host the domain as the registrar for your Wordpress blog. This means that the domain is with Yola and any DNS configuration would be done with the Yola management tool.

You would also need to purchase a hosting plan, presumably Bronze which will then give you access to the management of the DNS settings of the domain, allowing you to point your domain to wherever.

I was hoping I could use a WordPress widget to read my Wordpress blog and make comments right in my Yola website.

I'm forced to use Disqus which is very frustrating. It is flaky at best. I have had over 100 people try to join and contribute to my iSenior's blog I have on Yola using Disqus for comments and new topics, and all said that it's to clumsy and difficult to do. I lost my username on it a couple of times myself.

I tried Tumblr which decided to drop the ability to add basic information on the theme. I can only do that with CCS programming knowledge unless I pay for a theme. Also I can't have discussions unless I again use Disqus.

I think it's kind of related.

By the way Yola Team.

I also may have a dumb question but what is this program you are using for discussion.

This place is Get Satisfaction which is a subscription based forum developed for business customer support..

The Yola system doesn't allow direct inpu into the site except through the sitebuilder. These ther party solutions have a trusted method to access yola sites but it's not commonly available to many third party facilities.

Another comment/forum facility is Echo which is a paid for subscription and excellent also. It works with Yola.

Interesting comments on Disqus as it's widely used by Wordpress as well so I'm not quite sure what you mean by losing you user name. Did the dialogue just drop out?

As far as using the Wordpress widget this wasn't sutable for embedding into Yola but you could bring your Wordpress onto a Yola page by using an iframe and a few have done this with external blogs.
