I just installed 1.5 and it seems that comments work on posts but not on pages, although there is a field to enable/disable them.
This is not a new issue, as I experienced it in 1.5-beta, but it seems the "bug" is still there in Strayhorn.
a) Is it a "planned" feature, somehow? In which case I'll give up bothering about it, even though I would have liked to have comments on static pages.
b) Is there a more recent, or better elaboration, than this thread [http://wordpress.org/support/topic.php?id=16759] about comments on pages?
c) In short, would it be (easily) attainable to have comments on pages?
