I want to add a comment link like the ones on this site: http://www.dealseekingmom.com/
where the comment box does not come up until you want to add a comment. Do you know if this is available and if so where?

Thanks so much!

Hi Katie

You can add comments to your site if you create a blog page in the site builder (Click on New Page | Blog Page).

Once you have a blog, you can then add comments to the blog through an external service called Disqus. You'll have to create an account on Disqus and then follow these instructions: http://disqus.com/comments/yola/

Your blog should then function like the one you mentioned. When someone clicks into a blog post they will see the comments box.

Let us know if this doesn't answer your question - and also send us the address for your site so that we can take a closer look.

Here is my site: http://momsfunmoney.com If you go to the free samples page you will see I have them all listed and want to be able to have people comment on each one if they want, just like on the page I shared above. Is that even possible? I already have a separate blog page and have a comment box for that.

Thanks!

Hi Katie

You can add a comment form anywhere on a page by adding the "Easy Comments" widget to your page. Drag a "Widgetbox Gallery" to your page, then click on "Website widgets" on the left hand side in the box that opens up, and then click on "Easy Comments".

You can do this multiple times by dragging a new widget below each of the products you would like people to comment on.

This is one solution I can think of, let us know if it works for you!

Hi Katie,

Here is a link to another thread with information on adding a Comment Box to your general website pages: Easily Add Comments.

Hope this helps!

Rian & Emmy: Emmy's link worked the best as the widget was really large. I am still looking for one thought where it would just save comment and when they clicked on it, it would open another page with the comments, that way the comments would only be visible if someone clicked on a link. Is there anything like that out there? I am being so picky :)

Hi! It has been about 4 hours and I have not heard back and now I have a big problem. I went ahead and added the comment boxes suggested by Emmy. I have many items on the site, so many comment boxes are needed. The boxes make the site very slow. I tried my site on 2 different computers and the speed is horrible, so I went to just delete the widgets. Well, when I try to do that the box pops up asking me to confirm that I want to delete the widget, I press yes and then the computer locks up. I tried 3 times. I am not sure why this is doing this but now I have widgets that make my site too slow and no way to delete them. Please HELP!

Also when I am pulling up the page to edit a box pop up "unresponsive script"
A script on this page may be busy or it may have stopped responding. You can stop or continue. And then it lists the link for the comment. So something is definitely not right with these comment boxes
