Need help adding a Disqus comment box

Hello,

I searched the old posts for the steps but I am wondering if they are outdated or if I am really sleppy :)

I have an account on Disqus and the first step they ask for is to add the comment code. I searched Yola and it says to click on the Blog Manger and then the settings tab. I cannot figure out where either of of those buttons are on my site. So I need help with that first.

Then when I add the codes Disqus provides where do I add them so that each blog post I create has the ability for people to leave a post? Do I just add the codes to the bottom of the page, outside of the blog posts area? Do I do them in the order they are provided on Disqus?

Also step #4 on Disqus has me confused? is the code they are wanting me to change the code in step #3?

thanks to anyone who can shed some light on this for me.

Hello Katie,

Thank you for your email. I am attaching steps below for enabling comments on your site. For screenshots of these steps, please see: How do I let visitors comment on my blog posts?

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 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.
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!

Cheers!

I am sorry to be a pest. But where is the manage button? Is it before I actually enter to go to my site because I do not see a button at the top of my page called managed. Sorry!

Hello Katie,
Thank you for your message- you are by no means a pest! You will see the 'manage' button on your blog page. If you do not already have a blog page, simply click on 'new page' and select 'blog' for the page type.
Please let me know if you need further assistance!
Cheers!

OK, I must be going crazy. Yes, I have a blog page and there is no tab called manage. What is it next to? Where is it located. I guess I need really specific details because I am blind!
