Adding Comments to the River

Hey everyone.  I'm a bit new with both php and elgg.  I am using the basic light theme so some plugins are not working correctly for adding comments to the activity.  All I'm looking to do is add comments to the activity like there are for blog posts.  There is a little chat icon that pops up on blog posts and all I am looking to do is add that same icon to any other post on the activity.  Any thoughts?
