Comments are hidden

  1. How do I get the "leave a comment" box in my blog under each post, rather than hidden among the tags??

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

  2. The comment box is hidden on the front page. If you use the "read more" feature, when the person clicks to the full article, the comment will be a lot more visible.

    You cannot change the location of the "leave a comment" link on any theme without a custom design upgrade and CSS editing.

    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. 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. What and where is this "read more" feature? I'm finding that people are leaving comments for the current post on older posts because they're not seeing the comment box.
    Also, why does the comment box and like button show when I preview a post but not when I read the actual webpage?
    Thanks

  5. When you open the post in the visual editor, it is the 4th icon from the right side (next to the box that has the checkmark). Most people have one or two paragraphs before inserting that and the front page will show the “continue reading” tab. If you click on the title from your front page, then you will see everything there – it just doesn’t show on the front page itself. I started using it when I was using a theme that was very hard to figure out how to comment.

  6. Thanks, I found the "More" icon. I'm using it and the Text widget in the side bar directing readers where and how to leave comments.
    Have a great day!

  7. I just clicked on your top article & the comment section stands out - glad it helped! My readers tend to have visual problems so I knew if I had a hard time finding it, they would. Enjoy your weekend!
