Pop-up comments on Pages (4 posts)

    I know this has been briefly touched upon at points, which is why I've spent hours trying to search the forums. I still can't find anything for it though. I found a way to get pop-up commenting on single posts, but I can't manage a way to get pop-up commenting on Pages (outside the loop; not posts). I realize that pop-up commenting isn't supposed to work on Pages, but there must be a way.

    I tried a suggestion by Kafkaesque, I think, on an older thread. Something about setting wp query is_page to false. But this gives me an error in the pop-up window that directs me to the line:

    foreach ($posts as $post) { start_wp();

    Can someone give me a definitive answer for pop-up commenting on Pages?

    Are you able to allow for comments on pages ar all?

    I'm looking for something similar, in that I'd like to allow for commenting on my static pages -- regardless of pop-up or not.

    I'm implementing the pop up comments method as well and would like to find out more about how to require that a person be logged in (or have to register) to comment. The non-popup method seems to have that by default, but I cannot find an example of it in any popup comment (comments-popup.php) example (for default or classic).

    When I try to copy the relevant code from the comments.php page (at least what I THINK is the relevant code) and paste it into the comments-popup.php page, I get errors related to the else: portions

    Where can I find a working example of a comments-popup.php page that requires login or register to comment and is there somewhere else that I also need to edit?

    Help appreciated. The search in the forums and documentation is pretty useless, really, so sorry if this has been discussed in the past and I just didn't find it)

    transitionpete, you can have commenting on Pages. I think that's how most people set up guestbook type Pages. AT least that's how I set mine up [url]http://thejinx.org/site/index.php/forum[/url]. I don't remember it being particularly difficult though I don't have the code in front of me right now. If you still have problems, just ask me.

    Now...no more questions! I need answers. I'm setting up artists' Pages and would like to have an area where people can comment on the sample work, and also where the artists can post upcoming shows from their own computers. Can anyone think of a better way to do this than pop commenting?
