Hi GB,

You can use the Disqus feature to add comments to your posts. Here are the steps:

1. Visit www.disqus.com and register
2. To get the comment code, your site has to be published
3. Submit your URL on Disqus
4. Click on Admin > Tools
5. Choose "Generic code" and copy the code provided
5. Paste the code back in the dialogue box on SynthaSite
6. Preview your page to be able to view the comment feature

You only need to add the code to your site once and the comment feature will be enabled for all of your posts. You can then login to your Disqus account to moderate any comments.

Dear Kershnee,

I've signed up with Disqus, provided them with all needed info on myself and my blog, copied the generic code they provide into my blog (blog manager > index > settings), saved it, updated the site, and... nothing happens! Nada! The comment feature is not visible in the blog. :-(
I must be doing something wrong. I know Disqus is a third party feature you don't provide support for, and maybe I should be asking them for help instead, but if you know anything that could help me I'd appreciate your input.

Thank you for your attention,
Alex

Hi Alex,

It sounds like you've done everything right so far! Can you post your URL so that we can take a look? The comment feature is visible on the individual post, so if you click on post, you should be able to see it.

Can you also make sure that you copied "generic code #1" from Disqus onto your SynthaSite settings.

Thank you Marije! I now realize there's no link to comment boxes on the home page and I was looking for it in the wrong place! When I select individual posts the comment box is there! Thank you!

Hello,
Did you republish your site after you added the code for the blog commenting?

Either those links above are examples of Yola e-commerce websites or this is nothing but spam.
