Comment option not showing even after trying suggestions

  1. I have read all the comments and help on this forum and followed all the suggestions. I have turned on comments in the general Discussion area and on each post. The comment option still does not show under each article.

    I have signed out and resigned in as someone else before going to the blog and I still can't see the comment option under each post.

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

  2. Note that unless you use P2, a twitter-like theme, comments are collapsed on the front page of your blog where our posts are "showcased". The way the comments function is coded into the core of WordPress and we cannot chnage this. By clicking the post title or the comments link the posts on the front page open on their own page where all comments display.

    The reason for this structure is that 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.

  3. Thanks for your help but....
    It's not that the comments are not showing up, it's that there is nothing to click on to leave a comment for each post. I have several other blogs with WordPress, they all have the word "Comment" at the bottom of each post for readers to leave comments. daynesislendesign.wordpress.com does not.

    I have set everything up the same way as on the other blogs.

  4. Now I see what you mean. That's so odd that I have flagged this thread to be moved to the Themes Forum where you can get Themes Staff attention.

  5. Thank you.

  6. Your blog's theme doesn't actually have a worded link for comments.

    Instead of clicking a link like "Comments," folks will click the speech bubble at the top-right corner.

  7. Thanks for the feed-back. How will they know to do that? I guess I could mention it in the body of the blog.

    Is there a way to add the link at the bottom? All the other themes seem to have it.

  8. No, there isn't.
