Let's take a look at how we can enable the commenting functionality on New Zenler Blogs.
In this post we're going to cover two separate methods of inserting comments to your blog posts.
Method 1: Using Disqus Comments
Step 1 > Sign up on Disqus.
Create a free account on Disqus by using this link.
Step 2 > Install Discuss on your New Zenler site.
After you create an account and sign in to Disqus, scroll down on the next page and click on "Install Disqus".
On the next page, click on the second option, "I want to install Disqus on my site" to proceed to create a Disqus site.
Step 3 > Create and set up Discuss site.
On the next page, put in your website name (New Zenler Site URL) and also Category. Then click on Create Site.
On the next page, scroll down and select the Basic plan ( which is the free plan. if you want to use other features, you can go with a paid plan) by clicking "Subscribe Now".
On the next page, scroll down and select " I don't see my platform listed, install manually with universal code" (If you are not using New Zenler and your platform is listed, you can select that and set up in a different method.)
Step 4 > Get the code for Disqus Comments.
Step 5 > Setting up the blog on New Zenler side.
Go to the dashboard of your New Zenler site and open the blog post to which you want to add the comment plugin.
Open the settings for the blog post and scroll down to the Custom code editor.
Paste the code in the code editor and click on Update at the bottom
There you go! You can preview the blog post and scroll down to the bottom to find the comments section.

Go to the Facebook Comment plug in page using this Link and click on comments from the left panel.
Step 2: Go to your blog post on New Zenler to get its URL.
On new tab, open your New Zenler site and go to the admin dashboard. Go to the blogs section and open the blog post to which you want to add the comments plugin. From there, copy the URL for the blog post as shown in the image below.
Step 3: Set up Facebook Comment Plugin

Paste the URL of the blog post in the first box and fill in the next two boxes as given in the image below. Then click on the "Get Code" button below.
Step 4: Paste the Code in the code editor of your blog post
On the next tab go to the settings of your blog post by clicking the settings button at the top.
Now go back to the previous tab and copy the first code and paste it in the code editor of your blog post, which you can find if you scroll down in the blog post settings page. Similarly copy the second code and paste it the same way below the first one in the code editor and click on "update".
Once you have completed copy and pasting the code, it should look something like this.
