So in my wordpress site, I have the permalink set to / so that all  my internal pages look like the following:

http://www.domain.com/internal-page/

However, I can't get to the comments on my blog page. When I click on the comments link in my blog post, it just goes to the home page.  Do I need to adjust something in my .htaccess file?

Also,is it best to place the blog in the root directory or in a separate sub directory?  Also, for seo purposes, which is best?

yes, but for some reason they are not.  I do see a link for 2 Comments next to the blog title but when I click on it, it just goes to the home page.

Do you have a comments.php, or an archive.php in your theme files?

no.  in root, I have the following:

wp-comments-post.php
wp-commentsrss2.php

there is no archive file.  those are files in the root, not in the /wp-content/themes/[named theme]/

Hi there,

What I usually do is set my permalink to "/%category%/%post_name%/" (Not 100% sure of the perma link, but it is down that line. This one may have a typo).

Then I create a home page and a blog page. I then setup wordpress to display the blog when the the created blog page is viewed, and the home page when the created home page is viewed. Hope that make sense, it doesn't to me :P

I find that this setup works best for me concerning the url structure of a wordpress website. The structure I then end up with is:

http://website.com/
http://website.com/blog/
http://website.com/industrial/tractors

The tags and comments should remain the same without any issues. I haven't had any issues yet

Hope it helps ^_^

You must use one of the structure tags.

/%postname%

will give you the same result
