Hello Alexis

While we do not provide membership login at this time, you are able to add a comment box to your site.

You can add a comment box by utilizing of one these two services:

Disqus Comment Box:

1. To get the comment code, your site needs to be published.
2. Please go to Disqus.com and register for an account by clicking on "Sign up, free".
3. Register your site in the blue box. Enter your site URL, site name and site short name.
4. Create your Disqus Profile in the green box. Enter your username, password, and email address.
5. Click on continue.
6. Choose your language and any other optional features you'd like to include with your commenting platform. Then click on continue.
7. In the "Choose Install Instructions" box, click on Yola/Synthasite.
8. Copy the code in the #2 box.
9. Go back to site builder and drag over the HTML widget box and paste the code into the box. Then click on Done.
10. When you preview your site, you may see this message: "This page could not be reached by Disqus. If you are testing locally or on a password-protected page, please use the disqus_developer parameter as detailed here.." - please don't worry about that. You just need to update your site and you will see the comment box working on your published site.

Another alternative is to use Html Comment Box. Please follow the steps for this:

1. First log into your Google account. If you do not have one, then you can create a free Google account here.
2. Please go the Html Comment Box.
3. In the blue box, you will need to click on "Log in" - this will give you your moderation tools. You will be taken to your Google email account. Enter your login information. Once completed you will be taken back to the Html Comment box site.
4. Please select the options you want available (which is found in the blue box). Then, copy the code you see in the green box.
5. Go to your site builder, drag over a HTML widget box and paste in the code.
6. Save and update your site.

As for using a Facebook Developer Tool - I am not sure what all the requirements are needed to have this work. However if it just depends on adding a piece of HTML coding to your site, then it could be possible using the HTML Widget.

I hope this answers your question. Please let me know if it does not.

AlexisH's, see this thread, http://forum.yola.com/yola/topics/can..., from a few days ago. Alex's link in the first post shows an example of his comments box.

Near the end, he says he used a comments box from the Facebook developers tool, http://developers.facebook.com/docs/r....

Hope that helps answer your question.

Hey I got something cool that gives your site a little more of a personal touch.

It saves the user name they input and displays it during their session. It works on yola sites, I have an example and the script here: http://www.uberlinks.org/blog/yola-si...

I would only put the script on one page like the blog, or whatever page is updated most often. Then use disqus for comments and so forth.

Google Friend Connect is another option to create a user driven site using google widgets.
