    Hello! I would like to show comments below each post on the home page. Currently, guests need to go to the actual post page to leave a comment, but if you’re just reading the blog on the home page, it’s not there.

    Is there a way to do this?

    On the settings page, I’ve checked all the boxes to allow for comments/discussion. I’m using the Forever theme. my blog is http://www.madisonkatephotography.com.

    Thanks!!

    The blog I need help with is madisonkatephotography.com.

    On WordPress.com the comments never show on the home page, and that cannot be changed. Once you start getting 20 comments on a post you’ll see why. I have several posts with over 100 comments, and one with over 2000 comments. Nobody would scroll through all that to get to the next post.

    Fair enough.

    Instead, is there a way to get a link at the bottom which would link to the post page? Just a generic “Leave a comment” link which would be the same destiniation as the comment icon which is inline with the post title?

    Most themes have that built in. Take a look at a few of the themes you fancy and see which of them comes closest to the way you want the comments handled.

    @madisonkate08,

    We have a theme called P2 that shows comments directly below each post on home page so that a post can become like a thread. Check it out!
