    I changed my theme and my comments disappeared. http://www.sharongilbert.com

    I've tired at least five different themes and they are gone but as soon as I go back to my old theme, they reappear. Any suggestions?

    It is probably because your theme is missing the single.php page in your theme directory. You can use the default one in the themes/default directory.

    I've been having the same problem as whiterosie for a month or two now. My blog comments show up with the normal blogposts, but if I go to My Music page or my About page, they fail to appear. I find that using themes by Tommaso Baldovino is at present the only way to get out of this problem, so what could be causing this?

    I'm using WordPress 2.8 and my blog can be found here. Any help would be appreciated, as I can't use any other themes (not even the WP default) unless I want my comments disappearing in my pages.

    the comments template is not called in your Page Template (page.php)..

    <?php comments_template(); ?>

    Wow, thanks for that fast response, nazcar. YOU'RE THE MAN!! I inserted that line of code into the other themes' page.php and it worked! Thank you so much for solving my problem!

    I inserted the "<?php comments_template(); ?>" code into the page.php of the new theme and got the comments working but there is no place to enter name and email to post even though the checkbox in "Settings>Comments>"Comment author must fill out name and e-mail" is checked. Thanks for your help nazcar!
