Comments not viewable without clicking hyperlink: WHY?

  1. Comments are not automatically viewable to the public without clicking a hyperlink that says "Comments"

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

  2. Hi there,
    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 comments function is coded into the core of WordPress and we cannot change this. Unless you use P2, a twitter-like theme, comments are collapsed on the front page of your blog where our posts are "showcased".

    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. Thank you!!! Appreciate your swift response.

    And just to clarify, if I change my theme from Bueno to P2, comments will be showcased on the same page as the post? What are the disadvantages to the P2 theme?

    Thanks again!

  4. The P2 theme is hideous. Preview it and see.

  5. I'd suggest a recent comments widget for the sidebar:

  6. Ha! Ok. Well, if I purchase my site, will have more options on how comments are displayed? But then I will need more knowledge of "coding" (I don't know the correct term for this.) the blog, right?

  7. Ok, I will try the widget first, thanks!
