Probably there is something obvious I am not doing, but I can't seem to enable "comments" to my posts. I am using Genesis 1.9.x and the Corporate child theme. I went to "discussion" and checked "allow anyone to comment" (along with the safeguard of requiring moderator approval). When I go to my site, I cannot see a comment box on the Blog page, nor on the "testimonial" page. (The testimonial page is actually just a post with the "testimonial" as a category that I managed to get onto the menu -- so I don't know if that will create a complicating issue).
Any insights by anyone would be appreciated! The site is CaliforniaCollectionDefense.com
A few things to check:
1) are comments allowed on the particular post/page? see your post/page edit screen. Comments can be turned off on an individual post/page basis. If some options are not appearing on the post/page edit screen, click the screen options in the upper right.
2) for your defaults, see Genesis->Theme Settings. Changing these defaults won't impact current posts/pages, only new ones.
3) a plugin conflict? If all of your settings are correct, it could be a plugin conflict. You'd have to deactivate all plugins, reactivate them 1 x 1 and test after each reactivation. That would help you to find the troublesome plugin.
Hope that helps.
Thank you, Bill. You hit the nail on the head: I created the posts prior to configuring the discussion settings to allow comments. Thus, the pre-existing posts still did not allow comments. As you further predicted, there was no "discussion" controls showing on the individual post settings, so I had to check-the "discussion" box on "screen settings" in order to show the relevant controls to turn-on comments for each post. Thanks again!
