    Hey there,

    Posted this once before but I'll do it again so it doesn't get buried...

    New theme I installed won't allow comments. You enter one in and hit submit and you get:

    Page Not Found - We're sorry, but the page you are looking for isn't here....

    You can check out the site at: spellingtalk.com.

    Any advice would be much appreciated...

    Oh...and steps I've taken so far are to copy/paste a comments.php page that I KNOW works. I've also disabled all plugins.

    Thanks all!

    change your action on the form

    currently comes up as
    http://www.spellingtalk.com/
    try

    <?php echo get_option('siteurl'); ?>/wp-comments-post.php

    Thanks, jrodgers, but that's a no go. My form action is already set that way...

    Any other ideas?

    your search form is not closed, it's missing a </form> so whan you clcik submit on the comments form it actually tries to perform a search

    Brilliant! Of you, I mean. Not of me. Damn closing tags. I noticed I had a unordered list unclosed as well, but picked that up earlier. Should have suspected the form tag as well as it was in the same location.

    Thanks a ton! Much appreciated.
