Comment threads not visible (6 posts)

    I am having trouble getting comments to work properly on a theme I am developing. As of right now everything appears properly except for the comment threads themselves.

    For example, I have a post that currently has 3 comments on it. The theme recognizes them and shows the comment count, it shows the comment box and if you submit something wordpress recognizes it... just nothing ever shows up on the page itself.

    Here is the code I am using:

    function.php

    <?php
    /* Create a function for register_nav_menus() */
    function add_wp3menu_support() {
        register_nav_menus(
            array(
            'main-menu' => __('Main Navigation'),
            'another-menu' => __('Another Navigation')
                )
         );
    }
    // Initialise the menus with the theme.
    add_action('init', add_wp3menu_support);
    
    if ( function_exists('register_sidebar') )
    register_sidebar(array(
    'before_widget' => '<div class="sidebar">',
    'after_widget' => '</div>',
    'before_title' => '<h2>',
    'after_title' => '</h2>',
    ));
    
    function pagination($pages = '', $range = 4)
    {
         $showitems = ($range * 2)+1; 
    
         global $paged;
         if(empty($paged)) $paged = 1;
    
         if($pages == '')
         {
             global $wp_query;
             $pages = $wp_query->max_num_pages;
             if(!$pages)
             {
                 $pages = 1;
             }
         }  
    
         if(1 != $pages)
         {
             echo "<div class=\"pagination\"><span>Page ".$paged." of ".$pages."</span>";
             if($paged > 2 && $paged > $range+1 && $showitems < $pages) echo "<a href='".get_pagenum_link(1)."'>&laquo; First</a>";
             if($paged > 1 && $showitems < $pages) echo "<a href='".get_pagenum_link($paged - 1)."'>&lsaquo; Previous</a>";
    
             for ($i=1; $i <= $pages; $i++)
             {
                 if (1 != $pages &&( !($i >= $paged+$range+1 || $i <= $paged-$range-1) || $pages <= $showitems ))
                 {
                     echo ($paged == $i)? "<span class=\"current\">".$i."</span>":"<a href='".get_pagenum_link($i)."' class=\"inactive\">".$i."</a>";
                 }
             }
    
             if ($paged < $pages && $showitems < $pages) echo "<a href=\"".get_pagenum_link($paged + 1)."\">Next &rsaquo;</a>";
             if ($paged < $pages-1 &&  $paged+$range-1 < $pages && $showitems < $pages) echo "<a href='".get_pagenum_link($pages)."'>Last &raquo;</a>";

    The callback used in wp_list_comments() is still refering to twentytwelve_comment so you got to have that in your functions.php.

    My problem would appear to be the same/very similar as the one described above, however as a complete novice to the world of WordPress I have no idea what to do about it.

    Any chance you can offer a solution that a novice could implement?

    I am using 'modernise' theme. I have successfully created a Guest Book page. The comments are left successfully and come in for approval, they get approved and appear at the bottom of the Guest Book page - when viewing it from the Dashboard, but the comments do not appear on the actual live web page. I am not savvy enough to figure out what to do, although I have randomly tried all sorts. Your help would be very much appreciated.

    please start your own topic;

    http://codex.wordpress.org/Forum_Welcome#Where_To_Post

    as you seem to be working with a commercial theme, please contact the theme's developer for support.

    I actually just realized although the comments now function properly my menu has broke. Any idea why?

    Please let me know if I can provide further information.

    Thanks
