[NSFW] Comment Form Not Showing On Post (13 posts)

    When you click on the Leave Comment on my posts, it takes you to the posts…but no comment form.

    I'm currently using Atahualpa theme.

    I've gone through WP Discussion Settings, Atahualpa 3.7.13 Comment Settings, and gone to the post in the Admin and see that the comments are on…yet it doesn't show up.

    I've been going through all my plugins, activating and deactivating them to see if there is an interference…but nothing….

    I'm not a coder, but can normally do simple fixes when they are clear.

    Thanks for any input.

    Obvious question - are comments turned on for each post?

    Thanks, I didn't know about doing the warning. But now it seems that it is too late for me to edit it.

    If a mod wants to, you can delete the link.

    It has to be a theme issue, I switched themes and it now showing up. This thread can be deleted since no solution was figured out

    It'll remain open for a year in case anyone can contribute to it.

    I am your worst nightmare:

    - I am new to WordPress.
    - I have a new WordPress site.
    - And I am having the same problem: the comment form isn't displaying underneath the blog posts.
    - I am not a developer, and don't speak code. (The nightmare part.) I do have access to a developer.

    The site: http://navocateconsulting.com/content/

    Settings:

    - My hosting company installed WordPress.
    - Using the twenty fourteen theme, which was the default theme at installation.
    - Comments are turned on globally in the dashboard: > Settings > Discussion > "Allow people to post comments on new articles" (checked)
    - Comments for the individual blogs are enabled as well.
    - Only one active plugin: 'W3 Total Cache,' which was activated by default at installation.

    I have seen many other posts about this issue on the WordPress support site, some of them dating back three years. None of the proposed solutions appear to provide any definitive answers, as the problems and solutions discussed are mostly contextual to a site's unique theme or a site's unique scripting.

    There was a post three years ago from alchymyth, a forum moderator, who said "it is intended that the comments form and comments do not show on the front page and in archives." He went on to say that he explained this further in a link provided on his posting. However, the link is broken. He further suggested this solution:

    to get the comment stuff to show on the front page, you would need to add a line before <?php comments_template(); ?>, i.e. change it to:

    <?php global $withcomments; $withcomments = true;
    comments_template( '', true ); ?>

    My blog posts are on the front page of my WordPress site, so perhaps this is the problem.

    Any relevant assistance appreciated.

  13. I am your worst nightmare:

    I doubt that. ;)

    - I am new to WordPress.
    - I have a new WordPress site.

    Welcome! But rather than jump onto someone's 6 month old topic which is not 100% unrelated to your question, can you please instead start your own?

    https://wordpress.org/support/forum/how-to-and-troubleshooting#postform

    That's the best way to get attention that your problem deserves.
