The reason for this blog post was because one of our clients had an issue with blog post readers not being able to comment to her posts.
Fortunately, there are many alternatives available that can be used for commenting to blog posts.
We have found 5 comment widgets that can easily be installed to blog posts.
When you're installing such a widget, make sure that you go to the Blog Settings in the Wix Editor, then to Display, click Blog Menu, and turn off the Login/Signup Button.
