Hi Khawaja,

For a simple comments feature on your site, you can utilize of one these two services:

Disqus Comment Box:

1. To get the comment code, your site needs to be published.
2. Please go to 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 Sitebuilder and drag over the HTML Widget and paste the code into the box. Then click on "Save".
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 republish your site and you will see the comment box working on your published site.

HTML Comment Box:

1. First log into or create a Google account.
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 Sitebuilder, drag over a HTML Widget and paste in the code.
6. Save and republish your site.

If you'd like to see screenshots with the instructions, please see this tutorial: Adding a Comment Box to your webpage.

Please let me know if you have any trouble setting this up.
