All I really want is a static page of text, with comments allowed under that, but I can't figure out how to do this in WordPress! I've spend a few hours trying, but I don't see any way you can add comments to a static page.
Alternately, I could just make a single blog entry and allow comments on that, but if I get a lot of comments, the original entry will get scrolled off or archived eventually, right? I don't want that.
The idea is to write a little essay, and gets lots of feedback, and modify the essay based on that. For example, an essay on why we should repeal prop 13.
Please let me know if it's possible to do this - to make a static page and also allow comments.
Thanks very much for your help.
