    Can’t find any info on how to do this

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

    Commenting is already enabled on your blog. If you go to a blog post’s URL (such as: http://arboristbob.wordpress.com/2014/06/13/the-mystery-of-the-browning-date-palms/ ) and scroll to the bottom, you will see a “leave a reply” comment box.

    Yes I see that, but even when I try to enter a comment, nothing comes up. Can’t get typing to show up in the box. How come?!

    Hmmm, I had no trouble making a test post. Here is a screenshot:

    Can you try using a different browser, Chrome or Firefox perhaps, and letting me know if you still encounter the issue?

    Yes I tried Firefox and same thing – guess the site doesn’t allow one to enter comments on one’s own site.

    You should be able to post comments on your own site.

    Thanks josh, but “should” doesn’t make it happen. . .

    Are you able to leave comments on other WordPress.com blogs?
