Blog comment problem -- each comment posted to all posts instead of just one. How do I fix it? You can see what I mean at www.teenmama.org/blog.php

Tbh, Yola's blog function is really hard to work with. Is there ANY way I could insert a link to a wordpress blog in the main menu, or can the main menu only consist of Yola-made pages?

Hello Alexandra

I took a look at your comment section. I am not able to see more than 1 occurrence of a comment being placed on your site. I've attached 2 screen shots to show you what I see.





Can you please let me know what it is you're seeing? Thanks.

I made a mistake in that I thought there were repeated comments because each blog post's "Comment" link says there is 1 comment.

HOWEVER -- there's still the issue of each blog's "comment" link saying it has 1 comment on each post when it obviously doesn't. What did I do wrong? See below:

Hello Alexandra

I think this may be happening because you may have incorrectly entered the wrong blog post URL. It's pulling up the number of comments made for your other post.

It should be http://www.teenmama.org/blog/being-tr...

Can you try changing this? Then, you should see the correct number of comments displayed on your post.

For every new post where you want to show the number of comments, you need to put in the blog post URL for that particular blog post.

Please let me know if you have any trouble with this.
