New weird thing: I just posted a new blog and suddenly the comment option is there. So, what, somewhere in all my playing around I fixed it, but it didn’t show until I put up a new post? And it’s not retroactive: the earlier posts still do not allow comments. (And I don’t have the option set for disallowing comments after a post is x-many days old,either. I checked.)
But it is semi-working now so I can live with that. I will email you the sign-in info if you want to take a look around, Andre. thanks so much for trying to help figure this out.
P.S. If you look and you discover some really stupid thing I’ve done and didn’t notice, will you please not tell me, lol. (j/k!)
