I cannot find the settings section/link. I am using 3.2.1 Please help!
How do I allow comments on posts? I cannot find the “settings” “discussion” buttons / links. I am using 3.2.1

Go to yourdomain.com/wp-admin
Look on the left. See the menu items? There be settings 😀
click ‘screen options’ at the top right of your screen, that will open a menu which allows you to display the discussion panel
There is no “settings”! If I go to “edit post”, the “screen options”, a button for “discussion” is seen. But whenI click it, no opportunity to leave a comment is seen on the post.
If you don’t have the options shown in the image, you are most likely not using an administrative account.
The thing is I AM using an Admin account (I am one of 3). My menu in 3.2.1 does NOT have a “settings” link.
And I don’t know how to put a screenshot in this reply / post box!!!
Do you have access to the Plugins and Themes sub-menus?
Also, what theme are you running?
Yes, I have access to Plugins and Themes sub-menus. I’m running Titan 1.25 by The Themes Foundry.
Have you tried:
– deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).
– switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.
– resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.
Just for the heck of it, log into your site, and then in the browser bar, try; //www.yoursite.com/wp-admin/options-general.php
What happens? Are there any error messages of any kind, or does it open the page for you?
No error messages. It opens the page.
Do as esmi suggested above.
