I would like for the comment box to show up on my blog all the time instead of just the small writing “leave a comment.” If the person clicks on leave a comment then it will display the box but I have received some feedback that people can’t figure out how to leave a comment. I understand it seems clear how to leave a comment you click on the button that says leave comment, but I think it would encourage discuss if I could get that comment box to stay up all the time. Thanks for the help
The blog I need help with is wmatt17.wordpress.com.
Unless you use P2, a twitter-like theme, on all other themes comments are collapsed on the front page of the blog where posts are “showcased”. Visitors click titles or comment links to read the full posts on their own pages.
The way comments are displayed is coded into the core of WordPress and we cannot change that behavior described above. t I have received some feedback that people can’t figure out how to leave a comment.
The reason for this structure is that 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.

You can use a text widget in your sidebar and state in it words to the effect of: To submit a comment click the title of any post or click the leave a comment link.
K great thanks for the explanation I will add that text widget now. Hope you have time to check out some of my blogs as well. Thanks for the help again.
