Comments are a great way to interact with your visitors and build a community around your site. In Comments Settings, you can control how comments are posted, approved, replied to, and more.
Go to Comments Settings
In the Home Menu, click Settings, and then click Blogging.
Click Comments Settings.
Check the settings you want to enable.
Enable Comments Globally
Enables or disables comments across all blog pages. When checked, additional settings will appear below.
Note: Comments are disabled for any blog posts published before you enabled comments globally. You can enable comments for these posts in the Blog Post Editor.

Lets visitors like comments. Visit Simple Likes for more information.
Require that Admins or Comment Moderators approve comments before they appear on your site.

Enable Comments by Default When Posting
Comments can be enabled or disabled per post. This sets the default option.
Comment Sort Order
You can set the comments to order by Newest First, Oldest First, Most Liked, and Least Liked. This sets the default order, but visitors will also have the option to set comment order.
Auto-Disable Comments Default Value
You can set a number of days after which comments for that blog post will be disabled. This is calculated from the date the post is published.
Check Allow Comment Flags to let visitors flag comments. This allows your commenting community to help fight spam, abusive language, and other commenting issues. Adjust the slider to set the number of flags a comment can receive before it is automatically set to Awaiting Moderation.
Disable comments per post (optional)
You can also disable comments for individual posts. This is a great way to allow commenting on your site while limiting discussion on certain posts. On a Blog Page, click a post.
In the Post Editor, click Comments On and set it to Comments Off to disable comments for the post.
You can also click never to see options for disabling comments after a set date and time.
Note: As an alternative to Squarespace's commenting system, you can add advanced commenting features to your site through our integration with Disqus.
