Questions on Webmasters Stack Exchange are expected to relate to webmastering within the scope defined in the FAQ. Consider editing the question or leaving comments for improvement if you believe the question can be reworded to fit within the scope. Read more about closed questions here.
This question requires a clarification. Joomla itself does not allow "comments". So you are certainly using a third party extension. So you'd better find out which one it is and rephrase your question accordingly.
