Can't add comments to my blog - HELP!

I mistakenly put something else into the discus window, other than my url and now cannot get comments on my page because I cannot find the register for account, or the code to copy, etc. What can I do so I can start over from scratch?

Hi Susan,
Did you go through the process of signing up for an account with Discus? I am going to give you a screen shot of what the page would have looked like:



Then it would have taken you to a page to put in your website name and url. Did you get to this point and put in the wrong url or does your question relate to something else?

Let me know and I will try to help.

I'm afraid I don't remember, but there is not link to get to that so I'm guessing that I did. If I did, I don't know how to get back there! Sorry to be so dumb about this - I'm usually pretty smart about these things! :-)

Thanks for your help. I really appreciate it. No point in a blog if people can't comment!

If you could try this to see if you have signed up for an account:

1. On your blog page click on the little Manage icon



2. Click on the Settings Tab

3. Click on the word Disqus



This will bring you through the sign up process. When you receive the code you can then paste it into the area available in the Settings tab.

If you have all ready done this, but do not remember your login information, you may have to contact Disqus, the do have a public forum here Disqus Forum and ask how to create an new account.

I hope this helps, if you get stuck at all please let us know.

Thanks so much. I followed the above instructions, pasted the snippet into the box on the Settings tab, clicked done, but there still does not show anyplace to post comments. Did I miss something?

Aw, that is cool, I am glad to help!

Did you click the yellow Update Site button after you added the Disqus code? Can you do that, I am not seeing the area to add comments yet, possibly that is why.

Just a quick note: I do see that you have some text on your page that has been copy and pasted from a program such as Word. Make sure to always copy and paste into Notepad and then bring it from there into the site builder. Copying and pasting from Word can cause some problems with the site builder.

Let me know about the blog stuff and I will look again.

I re-entered the text from Notepad - thanks for that tip! Here's the link again: http://susanberland.synthasite.com I did update it. I also checked that there was a checkmark in the box to enable comments.

OK, now I'm totally confused! How do I see your post? I refreshed the page, but nothing is there. I also went into my page with the link as though I was just wanting to read it, not signed in as me and still couldn't see how to post a comment. Sorry to be so much trouble!

Hi Susan,

I don't know if Emmy has changed shift yet but maybe I can direct you.

You won't see Disqus comments until you click the topic or the specific blog post. Then it shows any Disqus comments. It will close down again at some point.

Once Disqus window is open you can read others or make a comment.

Hope this helps.

Just to add as well... you need to scroll down to the bottom of your post to see the comments.
