Why are there no comment boxes on your hubs?
I have gone to two of your hubs (canine arthritis and children's playhouse) and neither has a place to enter a comment. I tried closing out and going back in but still no comment section??
When I saw your question, it reminded me that temporarily you were unable to access my comments section on one of my recent hubs as well.
I checked out all of whitney05's hubs listed under "latest," and only the one titled "Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy" had a comments section. I'm thinking the gremlins are probably to blame, but until whitney05 lets you know if she disabled comments, you can't be sure.
Very frustrating when things don't work like they should on here.
OMG, Til...I can't believe you asked this question! This has happened to me several times. Not my hubs, but hubs I have read.
I'm all set to comment and oops..nowhere to do so. It is very wierd. I actually thought it had to be a HP glitch. I hope you find an answer to this, so we can make sure that a hubber knows why they're not getting emails about comments!!
Just the other day I ran into this. Unfortunately, I don't remember who it was I had read.
I'll keep checking to see what kind of feedback you get!.....Goodquestion.
Mary I don't know if it can still do it But I believe it's in yur profile you can shut off the comments to hubs.
I remember now, some people just delete the comment capsule when publishing.
You can remove the comments section, but tillsontitan had the same trouble with one of my hubs recently, and I had not deleted the comments capsule or blocked them. I run into that myself a lot, and usually when I go back, it works.
I just hate to read a hub and not leave a comment
Frustrating, ain't it. I hate it when my keyboard can't spell.
But the comments are half the fun of HP for me.
I am not sure about whitney but I deleted the comments section on a few of my hubs that are just links to other subjects. I do not want anyone wasting their time putting in a comment on one of those hubs.
I can't speak for Whitney, but I know why I've disabled most comment capsules (except for the latest Hubs and a few that have comments that contain useful/helpful information to anyone reading SOME Hubs). I wrote a whole Hub about my own reasons. ("Disabled Comment Capsules on Hubs")
My shorter reason is that I don't want to leave comments unmoderated (because who knows who will put what questionable links in as comments..), and I have some Hubs that are from - like - 2007/2008. I'm really not able (time-wise) to keep going back and replying to comments on Hubs I wrote years ago. Some of them were written in reply to requests about serious subjects (like "moving on after losing someone"), and at the time I wrote them because I thought the person making the request deserved as serious answer. They're depressing, though - especially when I wrote them, want to now just leave them, and was getting serious comments on them that required serious, thoughtful, replies whenever they'd show up out of the blue. I've always very much appreciated comments, but it was getting to be a part-time job to give a lot of them the attention/reply they deserved. So, I decided to risk sacrificing traffic and disable a lot of the comment boxes.
I know that sounds like, "I'm too busy to be bothered," and it really isn't that. It's more that I have some challenges in keeping myself in a positive, moving-forward, frame-of-mind; so feeling as if I was always being "called back: and "pulled back" to the past wasn't just a matter of time. It was a matter of my own needing to feel that I am in in the present and moving forward - not always being pulled backward.
I know of several hubbers who say they have disabled comments due to lack of time to reply. I can understand that, especially those who do not come to site often and have 600 or so hubs.

I am not looking to name names here as this happens quite a lot on Hubpages, but can someone please clarify whether or not it is against the rules for a Hubber to come to your hub, leave a comment and then include a link to one of their own hubs as a part of that comment. I know it says under each...

Hi, I received the following message in a comment left yesterday on my Hub about dog diapers (on PetHelpful site)I don't know if this article is useful thanks to the pop up that couldn't be removed covering half my screen asking me "How good is this article?" - counter-productive to say...

Almost everyday, I read through hubs that catch my eye and the comments below. I've noticed that there are many comments that tend to be pretty identical to each other such as "Great hub!" or "Thanks for sharing!" My suggestion is to add a "ditto" button (or something...

Why can't we have like buttons and reply buttons in the comments section of hubs?Sometimes, the readers of an article may like some of the comments on it offered by other readers and would want to like the comment or at other times may want to clarify some doubt or ambiguity of any commenter by...

If I view my account's Comments page, it's easy to view, approve and respond to unapproved comments. However, if I go to a new comment in one of my hubs and click Approve, I cannot reply to it directly on the comment. Instead, I have to go to my main Comments page and find the now approved comment...

In the past few days, I've been getting racist comments left by "visitors" - people who leave comments but aren't members of HP. For the most part, these remarks are combined with anti-police remarks and being left on my law enforcement and crime hubs; however, one or two have been left...
