When I am in the back end of my blog, the comments page is there; however when I go to artouteast.com, there are no comment options. There is only a comment box in the about page. Why and how can I get the comment part of the page up and running?
You need to go into an individual article to see the comment box. Your theme doesn’t make this very obvious, but some like coroline say “5 comments” as a link if you have 5 comments, or “leave a comment” if you have none.
You can use the more tag to make readers go to the individual page if you want. Since your theme doesn’t make it obvious that you need to do this to comment it might be a good idea.
