Hello Jalendra,
Unfortunately it is not possible for others to create individual blog posts as this needs to be done from inside the site builder. It is however possible to enable comments so others can comment on the posts.

Right now Yola 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 and click on "Done"
6. Click on "Install the Generic Code"
7. Copy the "generic code #1"
8. Paste the code back in the dialogue box (Settings) on Yola
9. Preview your page or Republish your site 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 Yola.

Kind Regards,
Emmy

Hi Heartbeat

That is correct.. you do need to click on your blog post title for the comment box to show up. If you are having to do this.. then your comment box is working just fine! =)
