[resolved] Coraline Theme - Comment Form Disappeared (7 posts)

    I was using Cutline, and my Comment form disappeared. I switched to the Coraline Theme [Coraline 1.0.2] hoping it might resolve the issue but still no luck.

    An odd thing, a person who has posted many times in the past was able to submit a comment, even though the form is not appearing on the website...not sure how that is happening?

    Any ideas on what I need to do for the comment form to appear?

    I tried what was outlined in the topic above, but it did not work. Anyone else have this problem or know of a fix?

    Your site appears to be outputting the comments code properly, but I note that you require users to be logged in to comment. Could users not being logged in be the reason that the comment form isn't appearing?

    Thank you for your response, Mr. Bennett. Unfortunately, that is not the issue. Once logged in, it still does not display, a user is simply returned to the same page with the link to "you must be logged in to comment". It's a thought though, that it might be the login script? I'll try making it not required to log in and see if that helps though...and report back.

    That did the trick!

    I'm not always online to approve a comment right away, which is why I wanted a user logged in and registered to comment. There must be a problem with that script because even if they were registered and logged in, it still would not provide the comment form.

    I also had "Comment author must have a previously approved comment" checked as well. That way, if someone had already commented before, I would know it was pretty likely it was not spam, and the comment would go through without my having to check it first.

    I believe my requirements are satisfied by unchecking the "you must be logged in and registered to comment", and checking the option to require an email address. I kept checked the "Comment author must have a previously approved comment" which I believe will hold it until I have a chance to review the comment.

    Thanks so much for your help!
