Comments Not Working (8 posts)

    On our blog at http://www.stopsexistremarks.org/, we intend to have many of our pages set up to allow comments. On "Edit Page," for these pages, I've checked the box "Allow Comments," but when I visit the site, there is no box to leave a reply. See the following page, for example: http://www.stopsexistremarks.org/post-your-ideas-for-responding-to-sexist-remarks/. How do we get the Leave a Reply box to appear?

    If no one has an answer to the problem above, is there a mechanism for requesting support from WordPress? I've searched in vain, but have not been able to locate that.

    Thanks for any help.

    add this to your theme's page.php
    <?php comments_template(); ?>
    right after
    <?php the_content(); ?>

    by default your theme is not set to show comments on pages

    @ saratahir
    the OP wanted comments on Pages as well as posts so he put that in his theme's page.php

    where do you need it?
