    Why don't you try editing the entry and changing the comment status value.

    I just found out yesterday that people couldn't comment on my site at all. I did, in fact, have the default post setting to allow comments. However, through a search here on the support site, I found an item that solved my issue.
    In the INDEX.PHP file, near the top, but after the < HEAD > tag, is a line that is commented out that has to do with comments. Simply removing the two slashes -- // -- then saving the file and reloading it my browser proved to be all that I needed. The comment pop-up box came to life!
    If the comment pop-up is the only way to allow comments (and I don't know this to be true) then why is it not "allowed" i.e. not commented out, by default?
    Anyway, I hope this helps!
    Craig.

    That's not the normal behaviour at all.

    craig, i did that when i first got wp to work, it did not give me a popup though..it's still on my blog page.
    allusion, the comments are enabled and sometimes people can comment but then later in the day it will close the comments without me knowing..only when i go to my blog post area, and edit the post and then save it again, will the comments return to an open status.

    have u got modified index file?
    if yes try the default for a day or 2 to see if the problem reappear.
    if it's the original index file than i m not sure. Installed 5 WP blogs. All working fine.

    i used the original index as a template so all the nesscary codes are in there...the only things i added was the images for the layout and the style sheet, and the rest of stuff that went on the layout..

    Allusion,
    Is there perhaps something I missed in the install? I started with 0.72 right from the beginning.

    What happens when people try to comment? What exactly is the error generated? A glimpse into your error-log from apache would help as well. Anonymous, if possible, please post your blog address so we can take a quick look.

    it's not an error. it's a message on the comments page that says "comments are closed" it's not there now because i edited my blog entry and it went away..
    http://blog.serial-kill.net that's my blog, but i havne't gotten any comments on the latest entry so they haven't closed yet.

    I also have a thought to add to this:
    I noticed that whenever I post an entry using w.bloggar, all my comments defaulted to closed, not letting anyone do as such, but if I edited them, then they were open again.
    Are any of you who're suffering this using w.bloggar to post?

    Well, one quick solution is to change the default post comment settings under default post options (under the admin page) to "open". w.bloggar would just use the default settings, which would leave comments open. I could rewrite the blogger.newPost method for xmlrpc.php, but it would cause problems because w.bloggar does not allow modifications of their xmlrpc method calls. There would also be other problems with compatibility as this "b2 legacy" xmlrpc has well documented methods which are often used (and xmlrpc arguements are positional, thus picky).

    oh..maybe that's it..i'm using w.bloggar...so i guess that's why they are closed. the default comments setting is set to open of course. so i should just start using the on site posting method?

    Anon, I used w.bloggar myself to test the problems dicussed in this thread (latest version, downloaded yesterday) . When I post with w.bloggar and the default comment option set to open, the comments stay open on my posts. You might be using an older w.bloggar version.
    I am starting work on an XML-RPC based blog posting application for windows. This application will you set your own RPC custom methods with help files suggesting different XML-RPC entry points for different applications (thus letting you post to multiple blogs from multiple vendors with the same post). Scheduled beta release is a months away though. :-)

    LaughingLizard, that didn't work for me.
    It closed my pings and comments when posting with w.bloggar, despite my defaults being as open for both. However, posting with Zempt didn't result in this problem.
    I'd be interested in seeing this client of yours, once you release it, though. :)

    As promised, here is the quiet release of blogPost 1.0 Beta:
    Here is a small list of features and bugs.

    #Features include (for now), posting to multiple blogs, comment and ping control, category control,
    --more-- and --excerpt-- modification ability.
    #Bugs: There are quite a few for now. I have not been able to test this on too many blog applications
    I know that the comments do not get blocked on MT, their documentation sucks
    If someone could get me an LJ code, I could test it on there
    Any others, let me know.

    Here is the download link to blogPost 1.0 Beta. Have fun!
