Support » Fixing WordPress » Adding a Footer so I can insert a widget for comments

  • I have created a WP blog ( In my first post I am already getting comments, but the INK PRESS MAGAZINE theme I am using does not have a bottom bar to insert a comment widget into.

    Simply stated, I want people’s comments on each of my posted posts to be listed at the bottom of the post, so they can scroll down and read the comments.

    I’m sure that I need to change the code, but not sure how to do it.

    Please help,

  • The comments are always viewable at the bottom of the individual post, e.g.

    On your homepage (, you ideally should only display a paragraph or two from each post with a “read more” link that takes the reader to the full post. You do this by using the “read more” icon on your toolbar when editing a post.

    Otherwise, once you have several posts published, your homepage will become far too long if you allow the posts to display in their entirety.

    Okay, so now I feel like an idiot because I have told everyone to view my first and only blog post at, instead of the link you gave me, which has the comments. Hmmmm….I will have to give the more specific link for the next post. Thanks!

    Well, I did want to ask if perhaps I might be able to pretty up the comments section by the use of say, a widget for comments. The problem is that this theme does not have a bottom bar/footer, in which I can insert a widget.

    Any way to create a bottom bar, so that on the widget page in my dashboard, I can see a bottom bar to drop a widget into, and hence use.
