Thanks I followed this and now the Comment box appears which is great. 
But can people leave comments without having to leave their email address? Anonymous comments is enabled. thanks

If you enabled anonymous & it doesn't work, you can contact Squarespace Customer Care (email/livechat)

Ditto. Injected the code. Refreshed website and opened on Incognito on Chrome. Still comment box not showing. 

Edit: Fixed!

You have to go to individual blogs to enable comments. My understanding is since the blogs were already created, enabling global settings didn't update the switch.

Hi all!
 

Our comment box isn't showing despite:
1) injecting @tuanphan's code, above.
2) enabling comments on each blog post.
3) enabling comments in global settings. 

Here is an example blog post:

https://www.texashistorytrust.org/texas-history-news-and-opinion/randolph-b-campbell


Any other suggestions? 

Try adding to Design > Custom CSS

.squarespace-comments .comments-content.read-only .new-comment-area {
    display: block;
}

Thank you, Tuan!

When I add that snippet in addition to the original one posted in this thread...also without the original snippet, I get this error when trying to leave a comment:

/api/comment/CreateComment?crumb=BTZKPykaqDhCZmM4YTgwZTY2MjI5YjZiYWRmMWRiZmI1YmVkMWVl  (JSON)

Authorization Denied: You do not have enough permissions

I have to fill out the "comment as guest" form, although we have anonymous comments enabled...then that error message comes up on desktop and mobile.

Follow up for @tuanphan...

When I open an incognito window, I don't get the error, I guess because it doesn't view me as being logged in as admin.

But people will still have to enter an email address and name to comment as guest. I think I'll leave it that way.

Okay. If you still help with any other problems, just comment here
