    Hello---

    For some odd reason, there is no section to comment on anything on any page. I went to settings>discussion and read through each box to see what needed to be clicked. Everything appears as it should to me.

    site: lifeexcursion.com
    Here is my coding in my comments.php file:

    <?php // Do not delete these lines
    if (!empty($_SERVER['SCRIPT_FILENAME']) && 'comments.php' == basename($_SERVER['SCRIPT_FILENAME']))
    die ('Please do not load this page directly. Thanks!');

    if (!empty($post->post_password)) { // if there's a password
    if ($_COOKIE['wp-postpass_' . COOKIEHASH] != $post->post_password) { // and it doesn't match the cookie
    ?>

    <p>This post is password protected. Enter the password to view comments.</p>

    <?php
    return;
    }
    }

    /* This variable is for alternating comment background */
    $oddcomment = 'class="alt" ';
    ?>

    <!-- You can start editing here. -->

    <?php if ($comments) : ?>

    <h3 id="comments"><?php comments_number('No Responses', 'One Response', '% Responses' );?> to “<?php the_title(); ?>”</h3>

    <ol class="commentlist">

    <?php foreach ($comments as $comment) : ?>

    <li <?php echo $oddcomment; ?>id="comment-<?php comment_ID() ?>">
    <p class="comment_meta">" title=""><?php comment_date('F jS, Y') ?> at <?php comment_time() ?> <?php edit_comment_link('edit','  ',''); ?></p>

    <?php echo get_avatar( $comment, 16 ); ?>
    <cite><?php comment_author_link() ?> </cite> says:
    <?php if ($comment->comment_approved == '0') : ?>
    Your comment is awaiting moderation.
    <?php endif; ?>

    <div class="comment_bubble">
    <?php comment_text() ?>
    </div>

    <?php
    /* Changes every other comment to a different class */
    $oddcomment = ( empty( $oddcomment ) ) ? 'class="alt" ' : '';
    ?>

    <?php endforeach; /* end for each comment */ ?>

    <?php else : // this is displayed if there are no comments so far ?>

    <?php if ('open' == $post->comment_status) : ?>
    <!-- If comments are open, but there are no comments. -->

    <?php else : // comments are closed ?>
    <!-- If comments are closed. -->
    <p>Comments are closed.</p>

    <?php endif; ?>
    <?php endif; ?>

    <?php if ('open' == $post->comment_status) : ?>

    <h3 id="respond">Leave a Reply</h3>

    <?php if ( get_option('comment_registration') && !$user_ID ) : ?>
    <p>You must be /wp-login.php?redirect_to=<?php echo urlencode(get_permalink()); ?>">logged in to post a comment.</p>
    <?php else : ?>

    <form action="<?php echo get_option('siteurl'); ?>/wp-comments-post.php" method="post" id="commentform">

    <?php if ( $user_ID ) : ?>

    <p>Logged in as /wp-admin/profile.php"><?php echo $user_identity; ?>. /wp-login.php?action=logout" title="Log out of this account">Log out »</p>

    <?php else : ?>

    <p><input type="text" name="author" id="author" value="<?php echo $comment_author; ?>" size="22" tabindex="1" <?php if ($req) echo "aria-required='true'"; ?> />
    <label for="author"><small>Name <?php if ($req) echo "(required)"; ?></small></label></p>

    <p><input type="text" name="email" id="email" value="<?php echo $comment_author_email; ?>" size="22" tabindex="2" <?php if ($req) echo "aria-required='true'"; ?> />
    <label for="email"><small>Mail (will not be published) <?php if ($req) echo "(required)"; ?></small></label></p>

    <p><input type="text" name="url" id="url" value="<?php echo $comment_author_url; ?>" size="22" tabindex="3" />
    <label for="url"><small>Website</small></label></p>

    <?php endif; ?>

    <!--<p><small>XHTML: You can use these tags: <?php echo allowed_tags(); ?></small></p>-->

    <p><textarea name="comment" id="comment" cols="100%" rows="10" tabindex="4"></textarea></p>

    <p><input name="submit" type="submit" id="submit" tabindex="5" value="Submit Comment" />
    <input type="hidden" name="comment_post_ID" value="<?php echo $id; ?>" />
    </p>
    <?php do_action('comment_form', $post->ID); ?>

    </form>

    <?php endif; // If registration required and not logged in ?>

    <?php endif; // if you delete this the sky will fall on your head ?>

    There are comments on your post pages...like here.

    http://lifeexcursion.com/?p=118#respond

    Maybe you have your site set to show a static page and the comments function isn't included in your pages...which is pretty common.

    So...by chance....do you know how I let people leave comments, not only on my blog posts, but also on my regular articles. In other words, how do I change my comments section so that I can have comments section available on anything I write. Thanks for your help man.

    Also, I would like that my viewers could just click on "Blog" and see the blogs and comment right there without having to go in to each article/blog individually.
    Thanks again...

    Got "Settings/Reading" and if your front page setting is to display a static front page, then change it to "Your latest posts".

    do you know how I let people leave comments, not only on my blog posts, but also on my regular articles.

    You would need to all the comments calls to your page.php file in your theme. The easiest way to do it is to look at how the comments code is included in your single.php file and add that to your page.php file.

    Thanks for your help...
    I am a little confused as to how to proceed based on the word you provided:

    Please reword as to what I should modify on my code so I can try it out.
    Thanks again...

    I am having a similar problem with commenting at http://wordpress.org/support/topic/241900?replies=5

    When you get a chance, would you mind taking a look at it? I haven't received a response in over two weeks (not attempting to hijack thread :))
