comments on posts

  1. One of my posts has comments shown following it; others do not. I'd like all my posts to show all the comments made to it. I have not found a way to do that.
    Blog url: http://arleneyolles.wordpress.com/

  2. The short answer is you can't.

    The long answer is the way 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". 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. Thank you so much. You cleared it up. Whew! Now I can stop getting nuts over trying to find a button to push.

  4. I can't get commenting activated on my recent posts. I clicked and updated all appropriate settings in the discussion section, and they're still not showing up. I've tried everything, seems to be a glitch. thoughts??

  5. Comments on all pages and posts on every WordPress blog are enabled by default. 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 individual post or page.

    Note: By default, new blogs on WordPress.com will have the Discussion hidden. You can reveal it by clicking on Screen Options http://en.support.wordpress.com/screen-options/ on the top right corner of your Admin page, and checking the box that says Discussion so the module is included. http://en.support.wordpress.com/modules/#list-of-modules
