    How do I get likes and comments to display beneath all my posts on the main feed, in the theme twenty eleven

    my blog is – http://ashacloud.wordpress.com

    Currently, you can only see them, if you click on the post heading.

    This blog has it – http://toemail.wordpress.com
    where it say e.g.; “17 bloggers like this” and then displays all their gravitar pictures in the form of a grid

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

    Hi,

    Try going into ‘Settings’ & ‘Sharing’. At the bottom of the page there is a ‘Show buttons on’ section where you can choose ‘Front Page’.

    See here > Settings > Reading
    set the blog to “full txt”
    For each article in a feed, show
    __ Full text
    __ Summary

    Scroll down to “Enhanced Feeds”
    Add to each article in your feed:
    __Categories
    __Tags
    __Comment count
    __Sharing

    Changes may not appear until you create a new post or your news reader refreshes.

    Currently, you can only see them, if you click on the post heading.

    You cannot change that. 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 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”.

    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.
