I think that you have to log into your website template through synthasite to create a new blog. Kind of how you log into blogger.com. Seems like the safest way to set it up so I dont think you did anything wrong.
Unless I am misunderstanding what you are asking?

Hi IK,

njoynlife is correct. You need to be logged in to your account to create a blog post. This gives you control over the content of what is posted to your blog otherwise anyone could create blog posts.

If you are looking for a way for people to interact with you on your blog, you could enable the comments feature. 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 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 SynthaSite
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.

Please let us know if you need more information about this, or anything else.
