Sure. I have only put one post up because I want to fix this problem before I do the rest. I want people to be able to comment on posts but not pages. I have Allow Comments, Allow Trackbacks and Allow People to Post Comments on New Articles all ticked in my settings. http://apermanentgrin.com/ Thank you for any help you can provide. I have tried everything!

I am sorry to drive people nuts, but this is so frustrating. I have spent hours trying to allow comments and nothing I do makes the comment box appear. I have done all of the obvious things. Can anyone help me? Is there something in a permalink that I might need to change? I have even tried uninstalling and then reinstalling my theme (platform pro) to no avail. Thanks again!

Frank, It could be a plugin that is affecting this, Do you have any comment plugins installed?

MORE INFORMATION When I "preview" other WordPress themes, my posy page reads "Comments Off" at the bottom, even though I have anything I know to do set up the right way. Could this be something in CSS? If so, I have no idea how to change any of that. Thanks again. Frank

It probably has something to do with the comments in general. Have you tried enabling comments in a Page (not a post) to see if they work there?


Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

Thanks, Catrina. I did try it in a page...same thing. No comment box comes up. :-(

I want to thank the people who tried to help me. I finally figured it out, though! The posts I was working with were more than 14 days old. Comments were closed because of my settings. So, if anyone else has this problem, check the date you set in DISCUSSIONS for when comments are to close. Had I caught this earlier, I could have saved myself a lot of head-scratching. But hey,all's well that ends well. Peace! Frank
