    I've seen this question asked before, and I also Googled it, and I still don't understand how to get the numbering right. I have four comments, and when I look at Manage-->Comments they are numbered correctly. But in the blog itself, they are numbered 2 3 4 6. Could someone please tell me if there is a setting I missed somewhere or something I need to download? My address is table4five.net. Thank you!!

    If you want 1..2..3 numbering, use <OL> to list your comments, or make your own counter.
