Hey there floss

As it turns out you are not using the new www.disqus.com blog feature after all.

You happen to be using a widgetbox blog or forum feature.

I tried the one you have on your site and was able to leave a message. I wonder if your friend was using it correctly. Can you see if you can read what I typed?

The easy comments widget you are using is quite simple to use and I can tell that you have it correctly installed.

Here you go floss

I edited this from their tutorial as others were having issues and this work around was an easy fix

To add a comment feature to your blog

1. To get the comment code, your site has to be published
2. In your site editor go to your blog page and 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
6. Click on Admin > Tools
7. Choose "Generic code" and copy the first code provided
8. Paste the code into a HTML widget on your blog page. (Reps I know, I know this step is not as the directions state but as that never worked the 10 times I tried it. I found this to work just fine each and every time)
9. Update your site
10) Preview your page to view the comment feature

Happy site building
Ed

Okay floss

Just to test it I repeated those steps and it worked fine as you see here

This pic is the 1st code snippet you need to select the code from and paste into a HTML widget.

Please delete both the bottom comment widgets on your blog page as they may be interfering. Just make sure that you don't delete your blog feature above.

hey floss

here is a test for you... Take the code that you get in the first box and open a any page other than your blog page and insert the code into a HTML widget and then update your site.

Let me know which page it is on. ;)
