    How do I put the Archive widget on my Comments page only?

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

    You cannot place a single widget on that page alone. You cannot have a different widget display than what is on your front page.

    Edit that page. On the far right hand side of the page look for Templates in the Page Attributes Module, then use the drop-down menu and select Sidebar Template and click Update, you will get the same widget display you have on your front page.

    I suggest that you simply edit that page and type the [archives] shortcode of your choice on it.

    Sorry, not quite sure about what to type into my Comments page. I just wanted to be able to put older posts into a drop down menu. (If that makes any sense?)
    Or, does it happen automatically when they reach the number of comments per page I have allocated?

    When you reach the number of comments per page you have set, the older comments will be rolled over and onto a second page and then to a third, etc.

    Thank you, that is exactly what I wanted!

    I think tauposeniornet not talking about what you and I would call a comments page at all. I think she’s talking about a static page she created (like a feedback page) called “Comments” http://tauposeniornet.wordpress.com/comments/

    tauposeniornet is also using Twenty Ten so she can have a sidebar on the static page if she chooses the Sidebar Template, but that means she will get the widget display she has on here front page, which does not include Archives. And from what I can tell she wants to have only an Archives widget on the “Comments” page she created.

    You can take it from here please as I have to go. :)

    Ah yes, timethief. It is a Page I called “Comments” like you said. I use the Twenty Eleven theme though.

    I think this is now resolved as the comments will roll over when they reach my preset number. I will be happy with that.

    Many thanks, both of you.
