[resolved] Comments box missing in Prosense theme (9 posts)

    Hello all,

    I have set up a website using the Prosense theme. I've "anchored" one of my pages as a home page for now.

    Here's my problem: I've gone into settings and enabled comments, specifying that users need to provide a name and email address, etc., have enabled comments on each page's settings, and yet....the comments box does still not appear.

    In my theme editor, there is a comments.php file, a page.php file and a single.php file.

    I checked the page.php file and the comments.php file does not appear to be "called" as are the sidebar, footer, etc.

    I have no knowlege of how the code works and would appreciate any help/advice anyone can offer on how to fix this.

    My website is located here
    Thank you

    the comments box does still not appear.

    Where? In single.php or page.php? Try editing each file and adding <?php comments_template();?> just before the end of the Loop (ie before <?php endwhile;).

    The comment box/form is not showing at the bottom of my pages.

    I'll try your suggestion and will post back.

    Fantastic, thank you so much!

    I inserted the comment as you directed, into the page.php file.

    Uh...but I attempted to log out to verify that the name and email fields are showing up correctly and it won't let me log out.

    error message: You are attempting to log out of

    Please try again

    Try deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    This problem just arose after I inserted that line of code to fix the comment box...

    The code that I suggested adding would not affect the WP Admin area.

    Well, it looks like it's a bug in WordPress so I'm not going to try to fix it at this point as long as I can log out through the dashboard..
