Google Sites Template

I love how easy it is to use Google Sites. Its "wiki" like interface is what appeals to me most. No need to access any backend settings, plugins, or need to possess any coding knowledge.  With that being said, I do not like how Google Sites does not allow for moderated, public commenting. This is a feature that is long overdue and sorely lacking in Google Apps for Education. However, after having performed a little online research I was able to remedy this problem by installing the Disqus commenting gadget on a Google Site page. I created a Google Sites blogging template that you can copy and play around with in order to see for yourself how Google Sites works in conjunction with Disqus.  Just click on the image below to download the Google Sites template.
