Okay, I think I have the "comment" issue straightened out.
In going through the "setting" options, it said I could leave the comments embedded at the end of the post if the post pages were not disabled. Um.....mine were not disabled, so therefore all should have worked just fine - Right? - Wrong! Go figure! Anywhoo, if you'd like to leave me a comment, I believe it will work as a pop-up window.
Thanks for your patience and understanding. I hope I did not have any of you thinking that I did not want or appreciate your comments, 'cause I love them!
Take Care! Elizabeth
