    How would I add a comments section on a specific Page in the Focus Theme.

    Thanks in advance.

    You can add comments on a per-page or per-post basis. In the post editor, look up in the upper right-hand corner for “Screen Options.” Make sure “discussion” is checked. Then scroll down and you’ll see a checkbox for allowing comments.

    Hi Dorian, I tried that but it doesn’t work on the Focus Theme.

    I have no clue why it wouldn’t be working in that theme. Did you try disabling your plugins?

    Hi Dorian, the only plugin I had enabled was Genesis Simple Hooks, which I just disabled and still no comments showing.

    What about on a post – are you able to open comments on a post? I’m going to send up a flare because this is probably something totally obvious that I’m just missing because I’m not super-familiar with this theme. Are you using bbPress on this site?

    To me, it looks like the problem isn’t necessarily that a person can’t leave a comment, it’s that the link to do so is missing. I believe if you use Genesis Simple Edits you can customize what shows up above and below the page, including the link to post comments. You could also do that by adding stuff to functions.php but the plugin is probably easier.

    I have just install that plugin, what code should I use and where should I add it?

    You don’t really need to use code – just go into Genesis > Simple Edits. The Post Info section is before the content and the Post Meta comes after the content.

    You know what? I bet there’s a page template in that theme that removes the post info and post meta sections, in which case the Genesis Simple Edits plugin isn’t going to help. I’m sorry, I don’t have any more time just at the moment to look at this, but I’ll be back in a couple of hours in case you still are having issues.

    Hi Dorian, it’s 3:45am for me over here in the UK so I’m off to bed :) hopefully there will be a solution here for me when I get up later.

    Thank you
