I think I can use Mastodon instead of Disqus as we do on Google. The two are a little different, but I think they can do the same. I have little knowledge of HTML. Can you help me?

I turned off the automatic response for address@hidden. I'll try to do as you say.

Well. ‘Content management system’ in a Web context usually stands [0] for a some server-side software, that generates pages on-the-fly (‘dynamically’). Such a WCMS cannot be used on, which is a simple hosting for HTML & Co. So rather than CMS in its normal sense, you actually use a static website generator, namely, as far as I see, a certain ‘Publii’ [1].

I am not familiar with it, and see no reason to expect that someone else on that list is, so you’d better address your question to _their_ mailing list. What I can say for sure, that what you asked is definitely possible. Although, I do admit, that it might be much easier not to patch the generator to prevent it from adding nonfree scripts, but to take a benefit from the fact that it is not a CMS and runs only on your localhost, and simply *cut them out* just before uploading pages to GitHub.

[0] While abstracting from its usage, we have to agree with Dr. Stallman who awarded that term with his personal “prize for vacuity”: :-)

| The term “content management” takes the prize for vacuity. “Content” means “some sort of information,” and “management” in this context means “doing something with it.” So a “content management system” is a system for doing something to some sort of information. Nearly all programs fit that description.
