It took me about an hour to figure out how to enable my comments, but have no fear! To save you an hour you could have devoted to… studying (that’s what college kids do on the weekend), here’s a quick rundown to get your site running right!
Your dashboard is just the jumping off point- scroll down the side bar underneath “Dashboard” to find “Settings”.
Subcategories will appear as you hover over “Settings.” From this list you’ll need to select “Discussion.”
Scroll down the page until you find “Before A Comment Appears.” The default setting will have the box “Comment must be manually approved” checked. Simply deselect this box and remember to scroll to the bottom of the page and “Save change.”
