How can I enable comments for a specific blog instead of the whole page of blogs?

For example, on of my blogs says, "continue reading", and if you click the link, it'll take you to the full blog and you'll have the option to leave a comment on that blog. But when I try to do that for a different blog, it won't put the comment option IN the blog, like the first one would.

Hi Sam

I'm sorry that you're experiencing some frustration. Most likely the reason why you are having trouble is because you're not actually clicking on the blog title to get access to your posts and therefore the comment section. The "continue reading" leads to you the full post. But if you already have a full post displayed, then, you'll have to actually click on the blog post title.

If this doesn't resolve the issue, would you mind sharing your url so that I can see better what you're talking about. Or perhaps you could do a screenshot that depicts what you're describing?

Hopefully we can find a solution.

I figured out the "continue reading" problem. It was just how I had my setting.
So now I believe I can phrase my question better:
How do I add coments to a post?
I can only seem to be able to add comments to a page. I want comments to be enabled on single posts, instead of one whole page? Is that possible? Is the question clearer now? Sorry for the first phrasing.

Hi Sam

I've attached a link that will help you get your comment box onto your blog post. I hope you will find this to be a helpful tutorial.

Let me know if you have further questions. Also, as noted above, you can only see the comment box if you actually click on the blog post title.

not sure if you're using disqus... but I rather prefer to use comments widgets from JS-Kit.com

Nice job everyone! Thanks for your help, Littleus - you are a star!

Sam - I am glad to hear that you got it to work. The comments feature is not as nice as we would like it to be and improving this is one of our future projects. I hope Disqus gives you a good solution in the meantime.

It really is poor that the comments just don't appear at the bottom. No reader is going to click on the title to get to that box. Can you please advise on any idea when this will be fixed?

I understand your frustration, and I am sorry that this feature is lacking. We don't have a release date scheduled for an integrated comment system for Yola blogs, although we are aware of the need for this and would like to deliver a better option when our development cycle allows for it. For now my best suggestion is to place a text box at the top of your blog, asking people to click on the posts to comment. I realize it is less than ideal, but I wanted to give you as honest an answer as possible.
