    Since my site is new I’d like to keep the comments visible at the site. sometimes they appear and sometimes they are listed below as ‘comments 5’. How do I do this. Thanks

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

    The site linked to your name has been deleted, but I will assume that you are asking about a wordpress.COM blog.

    The comments will appear when you are viewing a single post. When you are looking at an individual post, you can scroll down and make a reply.
    When you look at your front / home / blog page, with several posts then you will see “comments 5.” The reader can click on the “comment 5” or the title of the post to read other comments or add a comment.
    Note that even if you were to set your home page to display only 1 post, the same system would apply.

    You can’t change that on a wp.com blog: it is built into each theme;s function.

    The “Recent Comments” widget will display links to a number of comments. In my opinion, it encourages readers to take a look at those posts and sometimes even to comment themselves.
