For my comments page (which I call "Discussion") I am using the directions
provided on this page:

I am providing a visual clue by changing the link for the comment page to
red color if the page does not exist. It is achieved by the following in the
Site/PageActions page:

(:if exists Discussion.{*$Group}-{*$Name} :)
* %item class=discuss
accesskey=$[ak_edit]%[[Discussion.{*$Group}-{*$Name} | $[Discussion]
* %item red class=discuss
accesskey=$[ak_edit]%[[Discussion.{*$Group}-{*$Name} | $[Discussion]

Please see the above page (
http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/Cookbook/CommentPageLink); look under "Automating
the whole thing". It shows you how to achieve what you are looking for. I
have setup my wiki in exactly that way and it works perfectly.
