Would it be possible for you fix the default theme on WordPress in order to allow comments to be made to Pages as well as Posts.
I checked up on this and apparently its a theme bug. Basically you need to put in the 'comments_template();' code into the default theme's Page section.
If you enable the 'allow comments' option when creating a Page, of course nothing happens because the theme is missing the relevant code.
Thanks very much for your time!
