Comments Box Help (5 posts)

    Hello, I run a WordPress subscription site with pages that, while the subscriber level can view the pages, no comments options are visible at the bottom even though I have two boxes on that page checked. Allow pingbacks, and allow comments are both checked.

    I am lost as to why I'm not seeing the comments box as an admin, nor are the users/subscribers seeing it. Can you help?

    Thank you. I tried to search out this issue before posting, and was unable to find anything relevant to this issue.

    @alchymyth - someone else said it was single.php where this code should go, are you saying it should also be in page.php, and where in that file should it be placed?

    Thanks.

    @sean0913 was referring to 'subscription site with pages' - therefore my reply.
    as @sean0913 did not post again, i have no idea if that reply was helpful.

    @muymalestado
    yes, this code should be in single.php, and if you want to allow comments on pages, this code should also be in page.php or your page template.

    should be placed within the loop, usually it would be placed after the end of the post content.
