I've just worked through the Disqus feature, posting the generic code in the dialogue box. I then went back to my own blog page and expected to find the Comments feature there. It isn't. What have I done wrong? My blog is www.thecareerarenablog.com

Hi Dorothy,

The comment box will only show up on your published site when you click on one of your post titles and scroll to the bottom of the post.

Have a look and let me know if this works.

Hello Irorabaugh

I'm sorry to hear that this is not working for you. I'm going to include the steps here. Can you please try this once again? Disqus has changed their flow a little which may attribute to the reason why you're having some trouble with this. Here are the steps:

1. To get the comment code, your site needs to be published.
2. 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 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/Synthasite.
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.

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 log in to your Disqus account to moderate any comments.

Please note that the comment box will only show up on your published site when you click on one of your post titles and scroll to the bottom of the post.

Instructions are also available on the Disqus Blog.

For full instructions see our tutorial: Blogging with Yola.

Please let us know if you still have trouble with this.

Thanks Kershnee - again! I've managed to sort out the static box with your help. The text probably needs altering but at least I now know how to do it.

When I have a problem with technology I'm always prepared to believe it is my fault. I do appreciate having the Yola team to help!
