    I have a problem. When I'd like to comment on a post I always get this error:
    "Error: please type a comment."

    However, I've already typed it..
    I think I deleted accidentally something in my comments.php..or I don't know. This is my comments.php file:

    <head><link rel="stylesheet" href="/wp-content/themes/DLNtheme/style.css" type="text/css" media="screen" /></head>
    <?php
    if (isset($_SERVER['SCRIPT_FILENAME']) && 'comments.php' == basename($_SERVER['SCRIPT_FILENAME']))
    die ('Please do not load this page directly. Thanks!');
    if ( post_password_required() ) {
    ?>
    <p class="nocomments">
    <?php _e('This post is password protected. Enter the password to view comments.'); ?>
    </p>
    <?php return; } ?>
    <!-- You can start editing here. -->
    <h3 id="comments">
    <?php comments_number(__('No replies'), __('One reply'), __('% replies'));?>
    <?php printf(__(' to “%s”'), the_title('', '', false)); ?>
    </h3>
    <div class="simplecont">
    <?php if($comments) : ?>
    <table class="allcomments" cellpadding="1" cellspacing="3" align="center">
    <?php foreach($comments as $comment) : ?>
    <tr>
    <td class="DLNcomment">
    <div class="DLNcomposter">
    Posted by <?php comment_author_link(); ?> | <?php if( function_exists( 'atrwcp_reply' ) ) atrwcp_reply(); ?>
    </div>
    <div class="DLNcomtext">
    <?php comment_text(); ?>
    </div>
    <div class="DLNcomdate">

    </div>
    </td>
    </tr>
    <?php endforeach; ?>
    </table>
    </div>
    <?php else : ?>
    <p>No comments yet</p>

    What is this?

    <head><link rel="stylesheet" href="/wp-content/themes/DLNtheme/style.css" type="text/css" media="screen" /></head>

    You can't have a <head> element here, this would be very invalid HTML, and might be messing with the form. First make sure your HTML is valid, then come back and let us know if you are still having problems.

    You're missing name="comment"

    <textarea id="comment" cols="50" rows="7" tabindex="4"></textarea>

    Replace with:

    <textarea id="comment" name="comment" cols="50" rows="7" tabindex="4"></textarea>

    I know this was an old post but it comes to the top when searching for this error so added the solution for anyone else who finds there way here.
