I made my posts my front page which removed a static front page. This resulted in the ability for anyone to leave comments. How can I add the ability to leave comments back and still leave my latest posts as the first page?

Sounds to me like you are viewing your blog roll as your home page.

Each individual post comes comments enabled unless you disable the comments. Double check you Settings > Discussion to make sure your comments are enabled, and you should be fine.

I think our themes are similar.

Do you have a "screen options" button next to your "Help" button at the top corner of your pages & posts? If you do, then click on the "screen options" button and when it opens up, put a check mark in the comments box and they should appear on all your posts...leave them blank on your blank menu pages, only leave a comment box on your about page, if you wish. Most of your pages should only be there as a marker for your posts...except the about page and your privacy policy page, but you don't need a comment box on the privacy policy one, I don't think.

Does that help? :)

Do you have a comments box at the end of your posts? In your blog your current post should be on your home page first, then it will roll into the menu page you put it under. Does that help?

If your blog posts are on the front page, are they all full posts or summary's leading to the real post? Once you get them to the actual post, then they should be able to leave comments.
