Add Comment Function on a Particular Page

The Comment function is automatically added to the end of the last line of a page using the tag: <comments />

A technical glitch created by the Comment tag being added to the last line prevents the last code from being parsed properly.

This can be corrected in edit mode by manually pushing the <comments /> tag to a new line.
