Problems With Comments (3 posts)

    I am having trouble with the comment function on my blog:

    If I am logged in as the administrator I can comment, however no one else can.

    Under options > discussion I have the following checked:

    * Attempt to notify any blogs linked to from the article (slows down posting.)
    * Allow link notifications from other blogs (pingbacks and trackbacks.)
    * Allow people to post comments on the article

    E-mail me whenever:

    * Anyone posts a comment
    * A comment is held for moderation

    Before a comment appears:

    * An administrator must always approve the comment
    * Comment author must fill out name and e-mail

    So as far as I can see people should be able to comment but the people who have tried cannot.

    Is there something else I can check?

    You didn't mention this part, which appears on single post pages:

    "Sorry the comment area are closed or not available for non registered member"

    As I don't see a registration option on your site, I assume these people are not members of your blog. So check the "Users must be registered and logged in to comment" setting under Options > General, Membership.

    I looked for that option, and found it was already checked.

    I don't necessarily want 'member's or want people to register to comment, just a name and email will do for now, so I have unchecked the "Users must be registered and logged in to comment" and the comment function appears to be working.
