I can’t get the comments on my blog to display the text–all I get is a little bubble indicating a comment was made, which you then have to click on to read. I would like the discussion to be visible. I’ve checked my Screen Options and “Recent Comments” is checked under “Show on screen.” Can anyone help? Thanks.

You can’t. The way the comments function is coded into the core of WordPress and we cannot change this.
Unless you use P2, a twitter-like theme, comments are collapsed on the front page of your blog where our posts are “showcased”. By clicking the post title or the comments link the posts on the front page open on their own page where all comments display.
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.
