Enabling Comments

Comments are enabled on a per-post basis. For example, you might want to allow comments on a post where you're asking for the opinions of visitors to your site but not allow comments on other posts on the same blog.

To enable comments for a post on the Compose page (or Edit a Post page if you are making changes to a preexisting post), choose one of the following from the Comments menu:

Open
Visitors can leave comments on the post and comments will be displayed.
Closed
Visitors can no longer leave comments on the post, but older comments will still be displayed.
Hidden
Comments are not allowed on the post, and older comments (if any) will not be displayed.

Be sure to save the post after you have selected or made changes to the Comments menu.
