Problem: All my comment forms area on posts are missing and only show on Pages, but not posts. I have triple-checked all settings that allow comments to show, and all are set properly to 'show comments', etc.
Firstly let me say that I am not a coder at any level, but i can search for and change code in CSS when directed. I have not altered an PHP files yet.
I use the latest WordPress, and the Mantra theme, current version 1.7.2.
( for reference and source code, my blog is at: http://www.davidjulian.com/blog )
I tried switching to the Twenty-Ten theme and others, but had no improvement.. so I wondered if it is a plugin. I disabled ALL plugins, but no improvements.
I then wondered if the writable permissions on a WP file may have been altered by a plugin, but that's a stretch.
Mine is a new blog, and has not yet been launched. I can't launch it until people can post comments, so this is really vexing me.
My web host says that the server settings are set up properly for comments to be executable, whatever that means.
Can anyone point out what i can check or alter to allow my comments areas to show and be functions properly? I wish I could find the bad code, missing code or improper 'call' in a file. :-(
Any help is deeply appreciated.
