    So how do I set it so that other people’s comments can been seen. I have received 2 comments via email. But they do not show up on my comment page. Thanks.

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

    For starters we need the URL beginning with http before accurate help can be given.

    thanks

    In your dashboard, in the left navigation module, go to comments. If the comments need approval, hover our mouse over the body of the comment in the list and a row of links will appear below. If the comments are not spam, click the “approve” link and they will then show in your blog.

    I believe that by default, wordpress sites are set up so that first-time commenters are held in the moderation queue and then after you approve their first comment they will then appear without you having to approve them.

    You can review the comment settings at settings > discussion.

    Also note this is case it does apply. The front pages of our blogs showcase content and comments are collapsed on that page. By clicking the post title or the comments link the posts on the front page the posts open on their own page where all comments display.

    The reason for this is page loading time which is a page ranking factor. 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. We have only seconds before visitors refuse to wait for our blogs to load and click out.

    thanks so much everyone….timethief, thesacredpath and auxclass! I discovered that the comments that came after I made the changes won’t appear on my site.
