Comments Box

  1. Is it possible to make the comments appear in full text following a post rather than as a 'comment' button to be pressed.
    I would like to do this selectively, as some of the older posts have many, voluminous, comments. I would especially like for each most recent post to have a comment box to invite participation. Can I do this?

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

  2. No, I'm sorry it isn't possible, unless you use P2, a twitter-like theme comments are collapsed. 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.

  3. In discussion settings I have no check boxes for "allow comments"
    "allow trackbacks and pingbacks" on this page.

    I need to remove the comments from the bottom and cannot find this setting in discussion settings....

    Am I missing something?

    Discussion settings is where you set up defaults for comments.

    In discussion settings I have no check boxes for "allow comments"
    "allow trackbacks and pingbacks" on this page.

    Those settings are found only on individual posts and pages. We can also override the default settings and enable or disable future comments on any post or page. http://en.support.wordpress.com/enable-disable-comments/
