Disabling Anonymous Commenting

Go to solution Solved by paul2009,

Hello! I just created this account to ask this question so I am not sure how it works. 

Here is my issue.

I would like to enable Squarespace comments for my site while disabling people to comment as a guest. For security reasons, I don’t like the idea that random people can comment without names. My blog is very personal, so it does not make sense for what I am doing.

Unfortunately, however, every time I disable anonymous comments, the ability to comment on my blogs disappears completely. It appears that people can either comment on my blog with the decision to comment as a guest, OR not comment at all.

Is there a way I can still require someone’s name while keeping commenting as an option?

It is not currently possible for visitors to log in to comment. The comment field on blog posts now only appears on sites that have Allow anonymous comments enabled in Blogging > Comment settings.

For more information, see the support guide, Blog comments and simple likes.
