[resolved] Missing Discussion, Excerpt boxes and other features - WP MultiSite 3.1+ install (3 posts)

    I set up a WP 3.0.4 MultiSite as a "beta" site. For technical reasons (I'll spare you the story), I had to do a fresh install. The second time, I started with WP 3.1 and have since upgraded to 3.1.1.

    There are several features of the Edit Post screen that are now missing in my second installation of WP MultiSite.

    *Excerpts box
    *Send Trackbacks box
    *Custom Fields box
    *Discussion (allow comments and pingbacks and trackbacks) box
    *Author box
    *Revisions box

    I really need to be able to allow/disable comments on an individual post-to-post basis. So a site-wide comment disabling option isn't for me.

    I figured out a work-around for the missing excerpt box and can deal (for now) without the other features, but am at a loss for what to do re: the missing Discussions box.

    On the upper right of the Edit Post screen, click open the Screen Options menu. Check off the things you want to have appear.

    Thanks so much! I had originally clicked that Screen Options tab from the Dashboard, and of course (since hindsight is always 20/20) the options were different there as compared to the Screen Options displayed in the Edit Post screen.
