Ok - I just discovered something....
I had created a page named blog - on that page I put my blog post.
Next to that on the menu was a category I had created "Leading"
So when I clicked on Leading - it gave me an excerpt of the blog post - when I clicked 'see more' it gave me the post with a comments box.
When I had my wordpress blog - it was my blog page that allowed for comments. I'll have to see how this works out with the editor - but I think I may have a solution for now.
Still - no ability to get comments on any of the other pages... but I don't want them there anyway.
I made the blog page private as it seems I don't need it. But... how will people know I have a blog if it doesn't say "blog" ?
Can you please give advice? Maybe I just name the category: Blog? :-)
