I notice that on my page where there is the comment box, there is no way for the person leaving the comment to leave their email address. How can I get this added to my comment box?

It is Theme dependent, so changing your Theme may be the only option. The general settings for Wordpress are all the same, but sometimes Themes do not support all the features (this is especially true for free themes that are not updated frequently). Try changing themes and see if this resolves the issue.

Ok, thnx. Still a bit wary about changing themes and losing data so maybe I will just find a comment friendly theme next time around. Thnx for the reply.

Hi Michelle,
Don't be too worried about changing your theme. I had the same concern you have. I did it yesterday and all is well.

Here is a post training from Tim on how to do it. Kindest regards,

Paul.

I think, no worries.
The ride should be good.

I had a great ride but now do not know about a 'home page.'

You see, each step is in the learning. That is why we are here at Wealthy Affiliate University.

In all things, Michelle, a 'Mission Impossible' is actually 'Possible.'

Be Blessed,

Paul.
