    I need to enable users to make comments on one page only – just a question of aesthetics, really – but I’ve managed to turn the ability to make comments off on all the pages instead. I’ve made sure that the Comments box is enabled on the page where I need them, but still no sign of the comment box at the foot of the page where it ought to be.

    What have I don’t wrong? And how can I correct it?

    Thanks, as usual!

    This plugin might be too overzealous.

    You may want to just try the normal settings to control where the comment form appears:

    After checking and installing / uninstalling various options I’ve come to the conclusion that the Comments option doesn’t work properly with your Grid layout, which is something of a pain! Curious!

    The site is at http://jacdo.co.uk/?page_id=52

    Thanks again!

    This only occurs on the Grid template, no where else?

    Yes; if I turn on comments for the whole site, they still don’t appear on the page with the Grid template.

    This was likely a conscious choice for how the Grid template is intended to work, we’ll have to revisit this in the next update and see if it makes sense to add it by default. Sorry for the confusion.

    In the meantime however, you can simply edit template-grid.php and add this line:

    <?php comments_template( '', true ); ?>

    Just before:

    </div>
    <?php get_footer(); ?>

    And that should work.

    Yes indeed, that works – many thanks! I was wondering what I was doing wrong!

    What I’d really like to be able to do is to treat the Comment area as a widget and put it at a place of my choice rather than at the foot of a page. Is that possible?

    Thanks again for your help – much appreciated!

    Can’t think of anything specifically to recommend, but you may want to checkout these plugins and see if anything will do the trick:
