How do I allow comments from readers to be shown?

  1. Hi,
    Can someone help me to set up my blog so that comments from readers show up below blog entries?

    Thanks for any help.

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

  2. Cooments are open on your blog posts. I checked. Click a post title and the post will open on it's own page. Unless you use the P2 theme which is a Twitter-like theme, know that the front pages of our blogs showcase content and comments are collapsed on that page and you cannot change this. The way the comments function is coded into the core of WordPress. By clicking the post title or the comments link the posts on the front page open on their own page where all comments display.

    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. If you are concerned readers will not find the comments section you can use a text widget to tell them how to do that and place it at the top of your sidebar.

  4. Thank you so much for the information. I am new to blogging and I'm still trying to find my way. I really appreciate the help.

  5. You're welcome and best wishes.
