Hello Tempest Star,

Only the people with the original Login and password can get direct access to your blog. Without a login you simply can't get into the builder. Only those people would be able to post a full blog article or post.

You may consider though the comment facility Disqus. When this is installed then others can make comments on your posts. If you wish to filter users of the commentary facility you can set this up within Disqus.

Good luck.

Hello there Tempest Star.

Petercsea is right - people can't write posts for you but then can comment.

Right now Yola 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 are guidelines for doing so:

1. To get the comment code, your site needs to be published.
2. Click on the "Manage" button.
3. Click on the "Settings" tab.
4. Click on the "Disqus" logo to visit and register for an account by clicking on "Sign up, free".
5. Register your site in the blue box. Enter your site URL, site name and site short name.
6. Create your Disqus Profile in the green box. Enter your username, password, and email address.
7. Click on continue.
8. Choose your language and any other optional features you'd like to include with your commenting platform. Then click on continue.
9. In the "Choose Install Instructions" box, click on Yola.
10. Copy the code in the #2 box.
11. Go back to your blog manager settings, then paste the code into the box. Then click on Done.
12. When you preview your site and click on the blog title, 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.

I hope this helps. Please let me know if you need further assistance!
