Comment boxe not showing under my blogs

  1. I have a page called "Latest New" where I post whatever news I have for the day or week, however there's no comment box underneath for people to respond.
    How can I get them to appear?

    Thank you....

    The blog I need help with is stoutstandards.wordpress.com.

  2. There is a comment box at the bottom of that page!

    There is only one dynamic home or front "page" per blog, where your posts are automatically added in reverse chronological order. On each post, you can allow comments from readers.

    You are trying to use a page to make "posts" but each "post" is only a paragraph on that page. The comment box appears only on the bottom of that page.

    The key is to understand the difference between posts and pages, then to learn how to use categories and custom menus to organize your site.

    Post to Pages

    It’s not possible to add posts to pages. However, you can use categories to create a similar effect.

    Here is an interesting article about posting to a page:

    and an article about custom menus:

    This page > Settings > Discussion
    Discussion settings is where you set up defaults for comments.
    We can also override the default settings and enable or disable future comments on any post or page.

    There's only one page for posts in a blog as Tess has pointed out. The front page of our bygs is the page fro posts by default. Unless you use the P2 theme which is a Twitter-like theme, the front pages of our blogs showcase content and comments are collapsed on that page and you cannot change this. The way the comments function is coded into the core of WordPress. By clicking the post title or the comments link the posts on the front page open on their own page where all comments display.

    In a new blog one does not have many posts or comments. In an established blog if the comments did not collapse on the front page it would become a mile long in no time flat and page loading time is a page ranking factor. We have only seconds before visitors refuse to wait and click out.

  4. Thank you ....finally got it. Appreciate it.
