I'm only 3 days into using the builder for my site and blog.
Is there a way to allow my customers to leave comments on my blog posts?
Thanks for you help!
Solved! Go to Solution.
By default, Disqus requires commenters to log in to help prevent spam. However, if you go into the Disqus moderation panel you can change that by going to Settings > Community and checking the box to allow guest commenting.
Except for advanced features like the one described above, you shouldn't need to go into the Disqus moderation panel for anything. We've taken the time to do a deeper integration with Disqus that allows you to handle everything within your website builder or from your own blog posts where you can moderate inline. We've also negotiated a contract with Disqus to allow everyone using the feature to have ad-free comments, normally an experience only available at paid levels.
Disqus does commenting well, so in this case, it made the most sense to work with the experts to meet the needs of our GoCentral site owners.
Are you using GoCentral or standard website builder?...
Does the blog component have comments feature?, Please check the settings...
If comments feature is not available!, GoDaddy must roll-out the feature...
I know this is taking longer than we'd all like but this functionality is still at the top of our list.
Thanks for your patience!
This is a basic feature of most all blogs, many people have decided to pay for your website builder software and this feature not being available is a drag. Please let us know what your implementation deadline is so we know if we should move on to other resources or wait.
I agree! Please give us a specific time frame so I can decide if I need to switch to a different website host. We pay too much for this not to be included since most other website host already have this or, if they don't, charge much less.
This is definitely needed and is there any way to see how many views on a particular blog, I need stats for one of my blog posts and cant see anywhere that links to how many views etc?
This is an old thread but I just created a blog inside GoCentral Webbuilder and was surprised to see there is no way for readers to comment. I moved this blog from Wordpress and I can tell you reader comments were a vibrant part of it. What I have to do here is to put a notice at the bottom for them to email me comments and then I will go back in an update the blog post with them added. That is incredibly primitive, time-consuming and makes the blog look bad. How could you even roll out a blog capability from the git-go without comments? Please advise when this will be available.
Yes. This is not a professional product if it lacks a vehicle for readers/customers to respond. This is not complex programming and there really is no excuse for a blog not to a comment capability. It really reflects badly on GoDaddy. I could also say the same about the lack of an archive function. I left WordPress because of a lot of issues and when I went with GoCentral I just assumed things like comments and archiving would standard, functioning parts. Go get a gamer and they could program in these functions in an afternoon. No excuse for not having it.
Just called GODADDY, customer service guy was great but like he said they have no ETA date and no clue on to when this is ever going to be a option he said "its rather new..." so anyways I cancelled and moving on to another company before I sent hours and hours doing this blog/site for NOTHING , Im so disappointed this is not a option.
I am using the free web builder trial and I think it's quite user friendly and nice but the lack of comments on blogs is a deal breaker. As much as I appreciate Go Daddy's work, I have lost faith in their ETA's posted here. Does anybody know if Wordpress is a better alternative? My free trial ends after the end of April- Go Daddy's final chance to make good on their ETA before I rebuild the site via another platform.
Save yourself the waiting game and just use WP lol. I ended up switching in March and absolutely in love with it. Their support is great and help you find the plan that works for your needs. It was a higher price point for me, but well worth it.
