Support » Themes and Templates » Adding comments to pages

  • Resolved web-betty


    I have another question regarding a template I’m using for this blog: 10 Things. How can I enable comments on pages, not just posts? I know each template is different, and my other blog (The Web-Betty blog) allows comments on pages (check out the “Ephemera” page).

    The template is called Bewildered 1.0 and came from here: 3columnwordpressthemes

    Any help or guidance is greatly appreciated.

    I’m still looking for guidance on this issue. As you can see from my other posts, I try and do as much troubleshooting on my own as I can, but I am far from a WP expert and this has me stumped (I know nothing about PHP).

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    You’ll need to add this line where you want your comment form to show on you page.php file.

    <?php comments_template(); ?>

    It’s probably not that simple, but I guess you should just put this in your page.php:
    <?php comments_template(); ?>

    In my theme it’s just above:
    <?php endwhile; else: ?>

    [edit] Jeremy was three seconds faster than myself.

    You guys are brilliant! I tried to copy some code that looked like it was what I needed and it obviously was not correct.

    This worked like a charm

    Thank you for the assistance!

    Thanks from me too! I was pointed here by Drew Stauffer (theme: Elements of SEO), very helpful theme developer.

    It worked just fine for me too.

    Thanks Peeps! Worked for me too 🙂

    Lifesavers, is what you are. This worked perfectly.

    How do I restrict this only for pages with the ‘Allow Comments’ option enabled?

    This didn’t really work for Pixeled. So I figured this out after some playing around… Wrapped a COMMENT div around the PHP function call, also added CLEARED div because that’s the way it renders on posts. Hope this helps

    <?php if (have_posts()) : ?>
    <?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
    <div class="topPost">  <h2 class="topTitle"><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2>
      <div class="topContent"><?php the_content('(continue reading...)'); ?></div><strong>
    <div class="cleared"></div>
    <div id="comment"><div class="cleared"></div>
    <?php comments_template(); ?>
    </div> <!-- Closes topPost -->
    <?php endwhile; ?>
    <?php else : ?>

    anyone know how to hide the add-comment link when a post or a page still shows it?
    i can disable the ability for someone to make a comment to a post or page while using /wp-admin but there is the problem still of a link still showing “add comment.”
