It seems that the CommentPlugin can't handle templates that are in subwebs. I installed the BlogAddOn into a subweb (Sandbox/SubWeb). The BlogPostViewTemplate topic has the following comment plugin invocation:
%COMMENT{rows="6" cols="100" noform="on" type="blogpost" templatetopic="BlogPostCommentTemplate" target="%TOPIC%" button="%MAKETEXT{"Add comment"}%" }%

When TWiki renders a blog post, it emits the following error in the warning log:

 (TWiki::Plugins::CommentPlugin::Comment) Could not read template file 'Sandbox/SubWeb.BlogPostCommentTemplate'

I have verified that that topic does exist. If I install the BlogAddOn into a top level web (Sandbox), it works fine.
