How do I get a comment form on the Post, because people do not see the small comment at the bottom of the post.

Are you asking for a comment form on each post? so if there are four posts on the home page, each one would have a comment form, or only when you go to a single page post? Or do you just want to make the footer of each post have more impace, like bolding the 'Leave a comment' phrase?

Comment Form

I really want to have a comment form for each post. I post only about 2 times a month, and the posts are lengthy. People want to comment, but can't find where to do it, so I need a form for the post.

Thanks for your help. It is appreciated.

Gina does have exactly what I want. I don't know what a PM is, but will she contact me or do I contact her. Thank you for this help.

PM stands for private message - you can send another user in the forum a message. I've done this and we will have to wait to see if she answers.

Maybe this just happens if you have full posts on the front page, not excerpts? I have mine set for excerpts except for the first one, so I don't know.

How do you set it for excerpts except for the first one. I can't see how to do that, but I'd like to try it.

I've been doing some more digging. This should be controled by ATO-> Comments -> Allow comments on "Page" pages, too? but according to this post (http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthread.php?t=594) there is a problem and should be corrected in 3.3.4

Found it, and can do it. But what I want is to have a Comments box after the post. I don't get that. Thanks for your suggestions though.
