I can see how that might be a problem, and I agree that having this functionality would be critical, however I am not aware of there being a problem with creating comments on blogs.
My guess is that the settings for blogs are set incorrectly. Would you log into the admin console, and Blogs
On this page is the following option: "Comments." Make sure this is set to enabled. If disabled, you will see the behavior you are witnessing.
It's not that they can't create comments, it's that after someone has created a blog comment, nobody (except an administrator) can review them. In my version, the only permissions someone can have is to "Read" or "Create" a blog. These permissions are enabled. You can read the post, but not any comments added to the post.
Thanks for your help with this.

That is weird, as my out of the box installation does not have this problem.
Have you configured any moderation values?
Also, for the space the blog is in, would you grant all permissions? I want to ensure it's not a space permissions issue.
No. I have not configured any moderation values. And I have granted members
of two groups permissions for this space. But the only permissions they
don't have are to create an announcement or a poll. The rest are checked
with the green checkmark. If you want to call and work through this with me
my number is xxx-xxx-xxxx. Otherwise, I'm fine to keep working with you via
email. Also, Jorge Dorantes is going to upgrade us to 1.0.4 today sometime.
I did not see that this was a fixed issue in the bug log (and perhaps
there's something quirky that I've done that isn't a bug... but I've
searched high and low).
I talked to Jorge and he will look into this issue while he is upgrading you. I will also ask that Jorge respond to this thread with the root cause if others have a similar problem.
On a side note, please be careful about posting personal information on the forum. I am not sure if that was a direct line, so I edited your post to exclude the phone number as anyone could see it
Thanks Kevin, and thanks for taking out my number. Didn't think about the
fact that it would post to the site... I'll wait to see what happens.
