Must login to comment?

    I have two blogs. In both the blogs, the options/discussions settings are the same. However in my blog, which is by the blog “Stray Thoughts”, when you press on the comments box, it says, You must login to comment.

    However on my other blog,, when the comments is pressed, it shows a proper name box, an email box and comments box which is the way it should be.

    A lot of people have been complaining that my first blog does not allow to comment. I have not done anything to the configuration. Kindly make the the same configuration for the second blog valid for the first blog too or tell me how to do it. I want the same three boxes appearing in the first blog. I have had to hold my blogging till then.

    Most of your features are very good but operationally things are unnecessarily a little tough.



    I think I have discovered the solution myself. Under General options membership was ticked on. Actually a majority of configuration with comments is in the options discussion and that is where I was searching for. I could not figure out where I was going wrong.

    Can’t help facing such problems, I suppose. Great software, neverthless.



    I’ve been using it for over a year now. I still don’t know everything.

    Searching for stuff in the code on my end can be a pain as well.




    I am having the same problem. Users that do not have accounts cannot leave comments on my blog. All the options seem to be correct to allow comments – the membership one is unchecked and the “allow people to post” is checked. What else could be wrong!?



    Thanks for starting this thread! I was having the same problem and couldn’t figure it out – but I had the “must be a member” option checked under the General Options tab. Oops!
