Enabling comments on your SharePoint blog

The default permissions for my internal SharePoint blog seemed to be such that comments were disabled. Here’s how to enable them (leastways this worked for me):

  1. Go to your SharePoint blog homepage
  2. In the Admin Links, click Manage Comments
  3. Click the Settings menu, then the List Settings menu item:
    sharepoint-blog-settings-list-settings
  4. Find and click Permissions for this list:
    sharepoint-blog-permissions-for-this-list
  5. Click on NT AUTHORITY\authenticated users, check the checkbox beside the Contribute permission (sharepoint-blog-contribute-permission) and click OK.

Now others should be able to add comments.
