I created a Squarespace website with multiple blog pages. I discovered that the native Squarespace commenting tool is not currently capable of letting people subscribe to my blog pages if they are using Google Chrome or Safari! I then discovered that Disqus email verification doesn't work with Yahoo Mail. I also hate that there's no way to turn off that email verification (which I don't need since I moderate all comments anyway). So I want to use a different commenting system. I've read some good things about Commento. Three questions: (1) will it work on a Squarespace site? (I'll pay a developer to integrate it for me) (2) Does it have its own issues/elements that don't work smoothly, similar to the other two? (3) Is there another plugin I should be considering for my Squarespace site?

Squarespace

I was just hired to help an enterprise event production company with their web tools. Due to COVID they are streaming 100% online and need to make hundreds of mini-sites/small-scale apps for each event. They are currently using Squarespace and just making a sub-dir for each new event I i.e., our-squarespace-account/{some-awesome-stream}. This becomes a nightmare when there are several sub-events and events span several days etc.

I am trying to plan a service with the following: - Top level view of all sites we create - Ability to develop a new site locally and push up either to our domain or a custom domain - Each mini-site will be bespoke, but a CMS is needed for producers to edit content and change basic info - Some kind of interactivity and capture of email and name is a must (this can be a separate service) - Eventually, building a client dashboard for them to see statistics - Piecemeal rollout and development of these services

Currently, I have narrowed down using Gatsby as an ssg to make an event page (cloning from one of a few templates). Then I would customize and push it to a Netlify hosted site. I am running into problems with the structure. I want my company to be an umbrella site so we have a top-level view of every site we create, but each client only has access to a simple cms for their event. Content changes should be easy to make via a CMS.

I know this is a lot, so thanks in advance for the input!
