I’ve had a few students contact me in frustration, because they are attempting to comment on their group-mates’ blogs, but can’t– either because very few people in their groups have written anything, or they don’t have comments enabled (Group 8, I’m looking at you!!).
Please bear in mind that your classmates get graded on the comments they provide to you– when you slack off on this, you sabotage the whole discussion process (not to mention your own grade).
To enable comments:
Click on Settings on your Dashboard. Then click on Discussion. Make sure to check the box that says “Allow people to post comments on new articles.” Then make sure these boxes are NOT checked in the section “Before a comment appears”: “An administrator must always approve the comment” and “Comment author must have a previously approved comment.”
Please check that comments are enabled on your site. Let me know if you are having trouble with this.
