"Comments are closed" problem opening them

Each page shows "comments are closed" at the bottom. I want all pages to be able to be commented on (for now).

There is one page which someone has somehow managed to leave a comment and that page does not show this message at the bottom. That was several weeks ago and when i had another theme.

I've done the following (it's been that way all along):
1) ATO->Style & configure COMMENTS->Allow comments on "Page" pages, too? must be set to YES
2) dashboard->Pages->Edit->page-you-want->Discussion->Allow Comments - must be checked.

Just now I deactivated all my plugins and no change.

Also, I've spent some time searching the WP.org forums. I've found the issue raised several times but none resolved. Example: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/258518?replies=6.

Atahualpa 3.4.2
WP 2.8.3

Just now I published some content on the home page and the comments are opened. On one other page there is content, another none yet. Both still say "Comments closed."

What plugins do you have? I'm woundering where the 'subscribe without commenting' comes from at the bottom of the page if you select the 'Scott’s Web Shop' tag?

I have about a dozen. The ones that seem pertinent are:

The others:

Yes. Disabled all of them with no change in behavior.

It may be more of a curiosity if I post some content on the Resources page and that page then allows comments.

Nonetheless, I'm willing to try to solve this.

Interestingly, if you go in through the webserver (which Google does if you search "Scott's Web Shop" with the quotes) you get a different setup:

than when you go to
http://scottswebshop.org

Morning,
Can you use phpAdmin and go in and look at the database. It looks like you only have two posts ands a couple pages. In the database, look at wp_posts and the column is 'comment_status'. Do all the rows have a status of 'open'?

Yes, both (there are two) have status as "open."

These two posts have as content,
"Welcome to WordPress. This is your first post. Edi..."
&
"This is an example of a WordPress page, you could ..."

The first is titled "Hello World"; the second, "About."

I've begun posting content on my resources page and would like visitors to make suggestions but page doesn't allow comments:
http://scott1137.brinkster.net/wp2/w...sources-tools/

What am I missing?

Scott, not going to be able to figure this out without 'taking a peek under the covers'. I'll send you a PM

Will that solution work for me when my issue is not on pages but on all posts? Details here: http://forum.bytesforall.com/showthread.php?t=5028
