How to setup Blog Post Comments
To enable Comments, you need to be on at least a Premium plan. Please go to upgrade your account if you want to enable comments!
Here's a video showing how to complete all of the steps below!
1. Setting up Disqus
To set up your blog posts to enable comments, first you should sign up for a Disqus account. These are free and enable you to do things like comment moderation, enabling reactions, options for your readers to sign in to post comments and more! If you've already got a Disqus account, copy your site's Shortname and skip to "2. Adding your Shortname to Quickblog + enabling Comments". Otherwise, sign up using the link below:
Once you've confirmed your signup, Disqus should ask you what you want to do with your account, select the "I want to install Disqus on my site" option.
Note: If you don't get this option, just click on this link: https://disqus.com/admin/create/
Next, create a Site in Disqus by entering your Organization name, your Website URL and Category.
Tip: Click on the Customize your URL link to set your Website Name and Shortname. The Shortname is the important part and Quickblog needs this to integrate with Disqus. You'll need to make this unique and be sure to copy it or write it down somewhere!
After, click the Create Site button below
You can upgrade to a paid Disqus account if you would like to disable ads and enable a few more features, but if you want a free account, just scroll down to Basic and click the Subscribe button. If you want to control your site settings in Disqus (such as comment moderation, ad placement, comments policy, etc), go to https://www.disqus.com/admin, select your site from the menu and configure the settings on the left hand.
2. Adding your Shortname to Quickblog + enabling Comments
Now you've got your Shortname, adding it to Quickblog is easy as pie! Simply go to Settings -> Quickblog Integration Settings and add your Disqus Shortname in the field and press "Save Changes"
Next, go to Settings -> Blog settings -> Layout Settings -> Quickblog Additional Settings and scroll to the bottom. Here, enable blog post comments and click "Save Changes"
Finally, you can enable/disable comments individually in each blog post! Just go to the editor and be sure to enable comments when you want!
