    The comment boxes won't show on any pages. I don't know why. Can anyone please help. I can't leave any comments or even see the form box to leave comments.

    Do you have

    <?php wp_list_comments(); ?>

    in your comments.php?

    I'm new to Word Press. I don't even know how to put that in. Suggestions?

    Well before five other people jump in to say this. Please use child themes when editing another theme.

    What theme are you using?

    What theme are you using? And have you modified anything in the child theme?

    I am using TwentyEleven Child theme. I have a style sheet with some custom code loaded under TwentyEleven. I have comments enabled. I just saw that Steven did a test comment on one article (http://polyliving.net/2013/04/what-is-polyamory). It looks like that is the only page where comments are enabled! I don't know why. Any ideas?

    WPyogi,

    I went to that link. It worked! Turning on comments individually didn't work. I had to do a bulk edit and turn on comments that way. Thank you!

    Another thing to check in the settings is whether users need a pre-accepted comment before they can post more. Glad it works.
