how do I add a place on my blog posts for comments from readers?

  1. Can't find any info on how to do this

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

  2. Commenting is already enabled on your blog. If you go to a blog post's URL (such as: http://arboristbob.wordpress.com/2014/06/13/the-mystery-of-the-browning-date-palms/ ) and scroll to the bottom, you will see a "leave a reply" comment box.

  3. Yes I see that, but even when I try to enter a comment, nothing comes up. Can't get typing to show up in the box. How come?!

  4. Hmmm, I had no trouble making a test post. Here is a screenshot:

    Can you try using a different browser, Chrome or Firefox perhaps, and letting me know if you still encounter the issue?

  5. Yes I tried Firefox and same thing - guess the site doesn't allow one to enter comments on one's own site.

  6. I assure you it does. I have several thousand.

  7. You should be able to post comments on your own site.

  8. Thanks josh, but "should" doesn't make it happen. . .

  9. Are you able to leave comments on other WordPress.com blogs?
