I set up the discussion options under administration – discussion.
But there is no box of click function on my blog page. There is a comments counter visible on my blog page, but when I click on it, it simply brings me to the top of the blog page.
There is something very strange going on with your links, the link to the comments section is: http://www.thesmarterhomeoffice.com/http:/www.thesmarterhomeoffice.com/blog#comments
It might be a permalink issue or another plugin causing problems, try resetting your permalinks and then try disabling all your plugins to see if it helps.
I changed the “Custom Structure” to /%post name with hypens%/ and it shows up on the edit page for the post.
I am not sure if this is on the website or not.
But the page title for all my website pages continue to have the sufix “blog” that I added to the Custom Structure permalinks thinking that it was the permalink for the blog page only.

A WP notice on the permalinks page said I need to change the .htaccess and the writablity permissions. I changed the writiablity permissions, but could not figure out where to paste the new code on the permalinks page because I could not figure out how to find or open the .htaccess file on the FTP.
I thought I was following the direction in “WP for Dummies” and setting up pretty permalinks, but it is a disaster I can’t solve.
You can’t make up structure tags, you have to choose them from the list of approved structure tags. /%post name with hypens%/ is not an approved structure tag, and you do not need to add the /blog suffix to the custom structure. Again, add only the following to the “Custom Structure” field:
Yes, you’ll have to edit the .htaccess file manually. You’ll need to use an FTP or SFTP client to access your server (get the login credentials from your hosting provider) and a plain text editor to edit (or create) the .htaccess file in your /blog/ directory.
I noticed that your permalinks are currently showing /%categories%/, which is also not an approved tag. If you’re going for /category/post-name/, use this:
