    I am an admin on the site and when I click on 'Go Comment' for any blog item from the front end, only the blog content is displayed, but NOT the comments block. I am not using any custom template for the blogs(but not sure if any changes were made), it's just using 'Full blog post item' as the template.
    I have set Allow Comments to 'True' under

    1) Administration->Settings->Advanced->Blogs->Comments Settings
    2) Individual Blog Item

    The 'Full blog post item' template seems to be perfect for me. Are there any other places where I need to change the settings or Is there any mistake with the 'Full blog post item' template below?

    <%@ Control Language="C#" %>
    <%@ Register TagPrefix="telerik" Namespace="Telerik.Web.UI" Assembly="Telerik.Web.UI" %>
    <%@ Register TagPrefix="sf" Namespace="Telerik.Sitefinity.Web.UI" Assembly="Telerik.Sitefinity" %>
    <%@ Register TagPrefix="sf" Namespace="Telerik.Sitefinity.Web.UI.ContentUI" Assembly="Telerik.Sitefinity" %>
    <%@ Register TagPrefix="sf" Namespace="Telerik.Sitefinity.Web.UI.PublicControls.BrowseAndEdit" Assembly="Telerik.Sitefinity" %>
    <%@ Import Namespace="Telerik.Sitefinity" %>   
    <telerik:RadListView ID="SingleItemContainer" ItemPlaceholderID="ItemContainer" AllowPaging="False" runat="server" EnableEmbeddedSkins="false" EnableEmbeddedBaseStylesheet="false">
            <div class="sfpostDetails">
                <div class="sfpostLinksWrp">
                    <sf:MasterViewHyperLink class="sfpostBack" Text="<%$ Resources:BlogResources, allposts %>" runat="server" />
                <asp:PlaceHolder ID="ItemContainer" runat="server" />
            <sf:FieldListView ID="PostTitle" runat="server"
                Text="{0}" Properties="Title"
                WrapperTagName="h1" WrapperTagCssClass="sfpostTitle"
            <div class="sfpostAuthorAndDate">
                <asp:Literal ID="Literal2" Text="<%$ Resources:Labels, By %>" runat="server" />
                <sf:PersonProfileView runat="server" />
                <sf:FieldListView ID="PostDate" runat="server"
                    Format=" | {PublicationDate.ToLocal():MMM dd, yyyy}"
            <sf:ContentBrowseAndEditToolbar ID="BrowseAndEditToolbar" runat="server" Mode="Edit,Delete,Unpublish"></sf:ContentBrowseAndEditToolbar>
            <sf:FieldListView ID="PostContent" runat="server"
                Text="{0}" Properties="Content"
                WrapperTagName="div" WrapperTagCssClass="sfpostContent"
                 runat="server" />
                 runat="server" />

    Hello Dinesh,

    Indeed the template looks OK, and if the settings are enabled, I don't see a reason for this behavior. I would kindly ask you to provide me temporary login credentials to your site's backend (you can open a support thread and send them over, or drop me a line at boyan[dot]barnev[at]telerik[dot]com so I can inspect this further.
    By the way we had a client reporting a similar behavior - when clicking on the go comment link the page was simply refreshing. It turned out to be a bug caused by our regular expression for blog posts URL not parsing properly the '.' character. For instance a blog with title "hello.-world-welcome-to-our-experiment." would cause this behavior. The bug has been addressed and we are working on providing a fix for it. Please examine your blog post URLs and let me know if this particular scenario applies to them as well. Thanks in advance.
