    I am using magazine basic theme. I checked the appropriate boxes in discussion under settings yet I do not see the comments form at the end of my articles. Can someone tell me how to fix it? Thanks

    Edit each published Page or Post and check "Allow comments" in each case. If you do not see this pane, click Screen Options at the very top of the page and check "Discussion".

    esme, I have checked "allow comments" and also "comments" box in Screen Options. In screen options, there is no Discussion box.

    There are no "allow comments" or "comments" boxes in Screen Options. Just a checkbox (amongst others) labelled "Discussion".

    esmi, I checked the box, "anyone can post comments" box. Still, there is no comments box on each post page, as suggested by c bavota.

    Can you replicate the problem using the default theme with all plugins deactivated?

    esmi, I think you got me there. I am not that computer-savvy. I am not sure what you mean by default theme. There are only two plugins - akismat and Jetpack by WordPress.com.
    Do you suggest I delete them?
    I appreciate the time you're taking to help me.

    Go to Appearance -> Themes and activate the Twenty Twelve theme.

    I am sorry. That did not work either. Still no comments box. I don't mind giving you id and password if it helps.

    Or, I may have to go back to my earlier theme. It gave me comments box, although, I found this theme serves my purpose better. Mine is a literature site, not business.

    Please do not give login information out to anyone on these forums. You should only share that information with a web developer that you have employed after vetting them thoroughly.

    Can you try creating a new admin user on your site, logging in as that user and then editing that post?

    Thank you for your suggestion about login info. I should have known.
    I will try a new admin user and editing the post. Probably, it will take a while, but I will keep trying.

    This is definitely not a theme issue. There's something wrong in your WordPress install or it's an issue with your login cookie.

    Finally, I found the problem. I posted aticles on home page which does not have comment box. All other pages do have comment pages.
    Thanks.

    I was also posting about this issue in another thread. It may be that there's something between this theme and certain host servers caching methods that causes this problem in some cases. My settings were fine all along. I'd cleaned my own cache, used multiple browsers of different kinds, etc, and it still didn't work. I finally waited a full day and found the comments boxes appeared, as they would instantly with other themes.

    rob212, I didn't know about the browsers playing a part in this. You may be right. Now I see comments box even on the page new articles being posted for two days now. For previous articles, however, "comments closed" line appears at the end, and I could not change it.
    It is not important for me, just thought I would mention it.
