Today I altered the email address where comments will land so they all come to the firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each post on the blog page should be open now for comments and Images page also has a comments box open now.
I was also able to active the ‘Follow’ button at the bottom right hand corner of the pages.
I must admit, I’m not sure if I can repeat any of these efforts with ease. A lot of it was hunt and luck.
