Can't Add COMMENTS after 2.5! Please Help! (27 posts)

    I've tried before and can't seem to get any kind of response... so, I'm trying yet again to get some help.

    I've finally upgraded to 2.5... I have a lot of pics on my blog, so the gallery function is going to be needed and used a lot!

    (my blog is located @ http://www.ez-entertainment.net/blog/

    As for the comments... they don't seem to be showing at all on the regular pages (and I NEED them there!)... and when I do an image gallery page (http://www.ez-entertainment.net/blog/?p=71 and click one of the thumbnails) it did show in a text link, that I could leave a response, but I got this error:

    This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below.
    −
    <response>
    <error>1</error>
    <message>I really need an ID for this to work.</message>
    </response>

    I may need to upload something else, I don't know... to get the gallery/album page, I had to upload the one from the 'default template' file as suggested in another thread. I don't know if it's trying and can't reply to an 'attachment url' or what the deal is... but, if someone can help, I'd GREATLY appreciate it!!! I just want my comments back!!! I don't want to edit any more posts until this gets worked out. And, they NEED to be edited as there are so many pics, it slows down the home page.

    HELP!!!!

    Well, I've been pulling my hair out, so I went to my php-admin, but I'm illiterate with databases! So, I've made a web page with what the "comments" table had on it... maybe it will help someone guide me to a fix. ?? I'm also concerned with the error message at the bottom (in red).

    I'm having the same problem too.

    Mine is a fresh install, and visitors do not have a comment box.

    My configuration is as follows:

    1. Settings --> Discussion -->
    a. Allow people to post comments on article
    b. Anyone posts a comment
    c. An administrator must always approve the comment
    d. Comment author must fill out name and email

    2. Write --> Pages --> Advanced Options -->
    a. Comments & Pings...Allow Comments
    b. Password Protect...blank

    What am I missing?

    Well, I did find another thread that did help at least for the home page posts... (http://wordpress.org/support/topic/151927?replies=8) I adjusted the header in my theme folder, that at least gives me the pop up comment box, but I still don't have a comment option on the single page. I've checked the codes on both "page" and "single" in my theme, and they both look correct and I didn't change the theme at all when I upgraded anyway.
    I also have the same settings as you have above... I don't have it that mod must approve or they must be registered members, but there's nothing on that admin dashboard page you could do to 'fix' this one.

    I'm at a loss...

    I reinstalled WP in a different URL...thinking maybe there's something wrong with what I did the first time.

    The comments for posts are working...but there are no comments available for pages.

    This is plain vanilla WP 2.5, using Kubrick, and not even 1 plugin installed or activated.

    So you are getting the single page post comments working then, huh? Just not the 'pages'? Well... you're two up on me!!!haha I can't get the post page OR a regular page showing comments. Only the index page. This BITES!!! I'm SICK to death of sorting through code, and just wish someone could clue us in on a fix for this!!!

    Isn't it a bit pointless to have a blog and NOT be able to let people comment???!!!! uugghhh... soooo tired of trying to work this out!

    Surely, there's some PHP wiz out there that can help us two desperate souls here... ???????? PLEEEEEEAAASE???!!!

    This seems to come from the theme. Try with the default theme.

    cryonics,

    I'm sorry...my mistake, but I am using the default theme; and the page doesn't allow comments.

    I doubt the developpers do not have tried the default theme.

    I didn't touch my theme folder though when I upgraded, so that's why it doesn't make sense to me... ?? I DID adjust the header in my theme just so it would at least allow pop up comments on the index page, but that's all I did. That was only because I wasn't able to click the comment link on any page anymore and get a reply box. It just takes me to the post page. And, on those pages, I don't even have an option for a comment.

    Same problem here but solved now
    , you need to edit the Page (page.php) template and add:

    <?php comments_template(); ?>

    Just after:

    <?php edit_post_link('Edit this entry.', '<p>', '</p>'); ?>

    Let me know if it works

    YES! It did work, Quique.

    However, now I have 1 more problem, now it says:

    Leave a Reply
    You must be logged in to post a comment.

    Here are my Discussion Settings:

    Default article settings:
    Check - Allow people to post comments on the article
    Before a comment appears:
    Check - Comment author must fill out name and e-mail

    Didn't work for me :(

    I think it may be because I've got the 'related posts' and a google ad, maybe they interfere with where I'm supposed to put your code. When I tried it, it took out both related posts and the google ad.... so, maybe it's supposed to go somewhere else...??? I have NO clue!!!haha If you do though... I'm ALL EARS!!!!!!!

    Thanks!!!

    Hi simonsopinion!

    Good to hear it worked!

    Check Settings/General/Membership:

    "Users must be registered and logged in to comment" , just uncheck it.

    Hi callaweb:

    Which "Related posts" plugin are you using? I'm using WASABI's v.2.04. and yes, looks like it conflicts with Google ads but no problem displaying the comments form. I'll look for a new related posts plugin as WASABI's is no longer supported.

    I'll post an update if I make it work

    Regards
    Quique

    Hi again:

    It works for me: , I replaced WASABI's plugin with "Similar Posts" from http://rmarsh.com/plugins/similar-posts/ and also have Google ads but they're included when the page is created (not in the template)

    Here's a full copy of my page.php template:

    <?php get_header(); ?>

    <div id="right">

    <?php if (have_posts()) : while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    <div class="post" id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>">
    <h2><?php the_title(); ?></h2>

    <?php the_content('<p class="serif">Read the rest of this page »</p>'); ?>

    <?php wp_link_pages(array('before' => '<p>Pages: ', 'after' => '</p>', 'next_or_number' => 'number')); ?>

    </div>
    <?php endwhile; endif; ?>
    <?php edit_post_link('Edit this entry.', '<p>', '</p>'); ?>

    <?php similar_posts(); ?>

    <?php comments_template(); ?>

    </div>

    <?php get_sidebar(); ?>

    <?php get_footer(); ?>

    Hope it helps

    I was using "RelatedPosts" found HERE

    I can try and change it to Simple Tags if you think that will help. Also, my template was already google enhanced, so all I had to do was copy over their code with my own, so I didn't change any placement of it...

    AAAARRRGGHHH! This is SO frustrating!!!

    I'll check your code above against mine and see any differences.

    Gonna take an 'eye break' and I'll be back in a few to let you know if I've had an epiphany!haha (doubtful!!!haha)

    Thanks!!!

    Ok... I've copied the default theme's single page code... and it does do the paragraph that includes "leave a reply", BUT... here's the code snippet. You'll see that it's got an http value and all it does when you click it, is keep it on that page, but the url reflects http:...../.../blah#respond in the address bar. I tried putting the pop up code in there, like I did in my header, but it must be a different code, because it wasn't even a working link when I tried that. Any suggestions??? My blog again is: http://www.ez-entertainment.net/blog/

    You can <a href="#respond">leave a response</a>, or <a href="<?php trackback_url(); ?>" rel="trackback">trackback</a> from your own site.

    OH, by the way... I did just go with the simple tags and removed the relatedlinks plugin. Works much better! ;)

    Quique, muchos gracias, mi amigo!

    So did you just fix a bug in WP 2.5? Impressive!

    OMG!!!! I just made TWO fixes!!!! It was kind of by accident, so don't know if that counts!!!!haha

    I had copied the WP default comments.php file into my own template file, and at first... nada... then for some reason, I tried another code in the comments.php file, and nada... so, I RE-input the default template's and VOILA! The text box is now there ON SINGLE AND REGULAR PAGES!!!!! WAAAHHOOO!!! I did keep the pop ups on the home page, just for visitors convenience... but I'm SOOOO stoked the other pages finally work and can have comments now!!! (can you tell I'm excited?!haha)

    Now... if I could just fix the sub-page for the gallery shots!!!! Guess that's next on the list!! ;)

    Thank you SO much Quique!!!! And, simonsopinion, I hope you got all your errors to work too!!!!

    Quique... any knowledge of this new media gallery??haha

    Hi Simonsopinion,Laura: I'm happy to hear that your problems are solved now! I don't think I fixed a bug in WP 2.5 , it's just a feature as most people won't need comments on pages ... Maybe it's a deja-vu but I think I had the same issue with a previous WP version :)

    About the gallery, I guess you mean the integrated image manager from WP 2.5? I haven't tried it yet. The good old ImageManager plugin was great but unfortunately can't make it work with 2.5 , so I went back to the old but still working IImageBrowser.

    Hello to the WordPress community!

    Can anybody confirm Quique's reply that WP 2.5 Pages do not support comments (in its vanilla version)?

    simonsopinion,

    By "vanilla version" you mean the default theme?
    If so, then yes, it is true that this template does not provide a way for users to add comments to pages. It should be as easy as calling comments_template() any where you want the comments box to display

    Posts, Pages and Attachments and Gallery Images are all stored in the "posts" database table - they are practically the same thing. Comments are supported for each of them.

    callaweb,
    Now... if I could just fix the sub-page for the gallery shots!!!! Guess that's next on the list!! ;)
    I think that you are talking about the page that will display your image fullsize after you click on it from the thumbnail grid, If so you want to look into attachment.php

    <?php comments_template(); ?>

    This was exactly what I needed, quiquepe. Many thanks for your help. And to callaweb, thanks for starting this thread. Sister Julie
