For some reason, caused by either WordPress or an associated plugin, comment sections are closed for all the current and new posts, as far as I can tell. The ultimate solution may require a bit of work. But for the moment, if you write a post or want to comment on a post, do this to turn on the comments:
- Log in.
- Go to the RLR blog dashboard (dial icon, top left of screen).
- Click on Posts/All Posts on left-side panel.
- Find the slug of the post you are interested in. Click the “Quick Edit” link under the post’s title.
- Click the box “Allow comments”. Comments should now be turned on, go to post and comment at will.
If anyone feels inclined to come up with a universal or permanent solution, this might be a place to start.
