comments dont work (5 posts)

    Hey there,

    If you can help me figure out why my comments aren't working, then I will gratefully offer you some reliable help to break any bad habit, or give you professional support to achieve a goal!

    Here's the message that comes up when somebody tries to post a comment at my new blog "www.goalsettingforums.com"

    Does anyone know how I can fix this problem? (gently please, and with much hand-holding! When it comes to programming I'm as green as Kermit the Frog's armpit)

    Warning: require_once(../../../wp-config.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/goalsett/public_html/wp-content/themes/spotlight-13/spotlight-13/comments-ajax.php on line 2

    Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required '../../../wp-config.php' (include_path='.:/usr/local/php52/pear') in /home/goalsett/public_html/wp-content/themes/spotlight-13/spotlight-13/comments-ajax.php on line 2

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Try turning off your AJAX comments plugin to see if that helps. Your theme uses an AJAX plugin that's causing some people trouble. Here's what I found with a quick Google search:
    http://themecorp.com/themes/spotlight/

    It's not an answer to your trouble, but it does indicate that this is a problem with the theme and you might be better off looking for support from the theme author (http://wprocks.com/forums/). Or maybe this piece of advice will help you:

    Thanks tsguitar!

    Your guidance led me to contact the theme author, and he helped me see I had part of my files incorrectly installed.

    To keep up my end of the bargain for helping me, do you have any bad habits you'd like to break? Or do you need any support on achieving some kind of goal or objective?

    If you like, send an email to habitbusters@gmail.com telling me about it, and I'll give you whatever support I can - I'm an expert on helping people get the results they want!

    Thanks again!

    Mike

    Cheers!

    No thanks, Mike. Just do us a favor and mark this topic resolved. If you can go one further, post a little bit about how you solved this problem -- other than contacting the theme author, what files were not installed correctly and how did you fix the trouble?

    I am the theme author. basically the problem occurs if the theme is installed in a deep folder, such as
    /wp-content/themes/spotlight-13/spotlight-13/style.css

    it would perfectly work fine if it is just one level from themes folder such as
    /wp-content/themes/spotlight-13/style.css

    Thats all.
