    I just started my blog and one person posted a comment. Now the comment block is missing and no one else can post a comment. I've tried all the nonsense from the forms such as checking to see if comments is enabled, etc. Really understanding what the reviews meant when they said WordPress is a coders tool not a writer's tool.

    can you post more details such as the name of your theme and possibly a link to a post or page where the comment box is missing?

    do you have comments enabled?

    dashboard - settings - discussion

    dashboard - posts - all posts - quickedit below each post title - tick 'allow comments'

    what are your setting there?

    To answer your questions in order:
    When I checked to see which theme is selected all I can find is a place to change the theme and noting that will tell me which is selected.
    From my blog log in there is no place labeled Dashboard. I can select "Manage my blog" where there is still nothing labeled Dashboard. I selected Blog Admin which does bring up a side bar call "Dashboard" from that point on your directions work and YES, comments are enabled.

    Did not understand the quickedit until I discovered by accident that it comes up with a mouse over. Allow comments was checked already.

    here is the URL for my blog http://aflaude.wordpress.com
