    Hi all,

    I currently have comments enabled for my posts (I'm using Jetpack's comments), and the comments correctly show up at the bottom of each post.

    I'm trying (unsuccessfully, as I'm slowly getting the hang of html, css, and javascript) to have each individual post's comments also show up under each post on my home page, which would allow someone to comment on a post from my home page, instead of having to click through to the post. Does anyone have any tips or suggestions?

    Thanks in advance for all your help. Also, a huge thanks to @nikeo for designing such a wonderful theme!

    There are many quite complicated aspects here both technical and from the layout's point of view. One would be comment pagination for posts that have a lot of comments. Another would be the integration of existing comments and comment forms in a responsive manner that would go well with the existing layout, considering some posts will have comments, other will not.

    Another point worth mentioning is that, from Google's point of view, you are eliminating a step from the interaction chain for users that comment on your posts which, in the long run, will hurt your Google pagerank.

    So, do you think it's worth the trouble?
