[resolved] Comments Don't Show Up At All (15 posts)

    I just finished installing the plugin and updating a previous app that I was using before for my Facebook comments (I used it with Alex Moss' plugin). And now the whole thing is gone.

    I've been searching the forum for some answers but when Matt Kelly tried to help someone with the same exact problem, Facebook closed the thread saying it was "resolved".

    I don't know how to fix this. I simply can't get the box to show up. I use the Genesis Framework as well and basically everything brettbum is experiencing or experienced is what I'm going through. No matter what I try, there's no comment box.

    right there with you @debbrancheau!!! I have the same problem. I was using Facebook Comments for wordpess with no issues, and then I installed FB plugin. Everything seems to work but there is no comment box at all on my posts cops.com At this point I would be willing to pay someone to get this to work...Z

    I agree they shut @brettbum down too. Never answered the same question we all have.

    Hey prozachtx,

    You seemed to have comments on your pages. And I just checked my pages and we too have comments there. But no comments on posts. Which is the exact opposite of what we want. And I don't see any place to change that setting.

    I figured it out.... If I select All Posts... then select Quick edit... Then check Allow Comments.. The FB comments section shows up... I am using a custom theme from Ghostpool: Juggernaut

    Hope that helps!

    Please make sure you update to WP 3.4
    Go to edit a post -> click the screen options drop down menu at top.
    1. Make sure Discussion and comments are check marked.

    2. Go to the bottom part of the edit post page and u will see this.
    Make sure both are checked.
    Allow comments.
    Allow trackbacks and pingbacks on this page.
    This should display the comments on a post and page.

    "I've been searching the forum for some answers but when Matt Kelly tried to help someone with the same exact problem, Facebook closed the thread saying it was "resolved"."

    The thread was mistakenly closed. It's been reopened. Also, if it's the same issue, please reply in that thread and don't create another thread. Thanks

    For a publicly traded company this sure is a bad plugin. To think this is official too...

    Are there updates in the immediate future? I cant get comments to work at all....

    prozachtx is right - Go to Quick Edit and tick 'allow comments' - don't know why this changed without me doing anything but this makes it work.

    I'm having the exact same issue. I install the plugin and nothing happens except it removes my normal comments. It shows a link that says "View Comments" but it just refreshes the page when I click it.

    I am having the exact same issue. Has anyone resolved this? None of the above made by comments actually show.
