[resolved] Can't make comments (6 posts)

    I am just feeling my way with a new blog, so this is a really elementary question: I can post fine but when I press comment nothing seems to happen. I've been over & over all the options but can't find anywhere that I might have protected the posts from comments. Any clues?

    Usually, it goes like this: no link, no clues :)

    Oh sorry, how silly of me! http://www.larkrise.net. I tried changing the theme but that didn't make a difference. Thanks for taking the trouble to respond. Chris

    Set your permalinks back to the default and try to comment.
    And don't change the permalinks before reading the manual:

    Many thanks, that sorted it. I have spent some time with the documentation but am not finding the basics very accessibile. btw am I at risk of spam by having quoted my url in the post?

    If you don't have any spam protection plugin active - you are at risk regardless.
