Add text around comment form (3 posts)

    This should be easy, but I am stumped. I keep trying to add a simple paragraph of text to my comments.php file, and it doesn't show up on a post. I have tried putting it in a lot of different places....tried viewing it logged in and logged out....and no matter what I do, it doesn't show up. Maybe I am writing the wrong comments file, but I can't figure out where else to do this. My theme only has one comments.php file. I've examined core files. Is there something I am just completely missing here?

    I think your theme has disabled the ability to write to the comments.php file--and in fact that is usual practice. I ran across a word of wisdom to this effect a week or two ago; someone else could easily correct me.

    Also, not to leave you with no solution, either of these two plugins may provide what you need:
    Genki Announcement, and/or

    I am not sure I understand this part about restricting to write into the comments.php. Once opened in a plain text editor - your can write whatever you want in any file, including comments.php
