I recently discovered one of the big reasons I was not receiving any comments on my blog was because the setting to require visitors to be logged in as registered visitors to the post a comment had been turned on.
I don’t know how this happened but I have a sneaky suspicion it is related to the Thesis theme I use. I set up a blog for my wife called Aspergers Living and the same thing occurred.
It took me about 45 minutes or so to figure out how to change the setting so visitors can leave a comment without being logged in so I thought someone might benefit from this short video on how to solve the problem. Or, perhaps you would like to turn on the setting so visitors would need to be logged in to leave a comment. Either way, take a look at the video and it should help you get your comments settings setup the way you like on your blog.
Please leave me a comment if it helps you. Thanks.
