Dashboard:Comments vs feedback help!

  1. I am kind of a newbie - so bear with me . . . In Dashboard there are comments and feedback. I have been using a "contact form" since comments did not seem to be working correctly. Now all the contact forms are going into feedback - which only gives me two options - spam or trash. Some of these are valid comments that I would like to have on the blog. 1) is the feedback because of the contact form 2) how do I move them to show as comments on the blog 3) I have plugins of askimet and disqus - and is one or the other the issue. What am I doing wrong. Thanks.

    The blog I need help with is ourtownglenwoodsprings.com.

  2. Anyone?

  3. All WordPress blogs by default have comments open on all Pages and Posts.

    Contact forms are for specific use on normally placed on Pages. Common uses are for example "post here to subscriber to the monthly newsletter." They are not meant for use for general commenting on posts and pages.

  4. All WordPress blogs by default have comments open on all Pages and Posts.
    Those comments are found here in the dashboard >
    http://ourtownglenwoodsprings.com/wp-admin/edit-comments.php
    and when approved the automatically appear in the comment stream on the post or page they were submitted to.

    I suggest you restore your blog to default ie. normal.

    You can enable and disable comments on free hosted WordPress.com blogs on this page > Settings > Discussion

    Discussion settings is where you set up defaults for comments.
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/settings/discussion-settings/

    You can override the default settings and enable or disable future comments on any individual post or page.
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/enable-disable-comments/

    Any existing posts or pages will need to have comments disabled manually via editing. You can use the bulk edit feature in the all posts and all pages screen to make that quicker.
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/posts/edit-posts-screen/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/pages/edit-pages-screen/

    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

  5. RATS! Go to the footer of your blog here p[lease http://ourtownglenwoodsprings.com/ and click this link powered by wordpress Sorry but as you can see that's a WordPress>ORG install. We provide support only for free hosted WordPress.COM blogs being hosted right here on this multiuser blogging platform. You are posting to the wrong support forum.

    WordPress.com and WordPress.org have different log-ins and run different versions of themes with same names. If you don't have a username account at WordPress.ORG click http://wordpress.org/support/ and register one on the top right hand corner of the page that opens, so you can post to the support forums there and receive advice from WordPress.ORG bloggers.
