All comments go to one post (6 posts)

    I use wordpress 2.3.1 at http://www.angadsodhi.com

    Try commenting on any of the posts but the comment goes only to this post: http://www.angadsodhi.com/wordpress/blog-to-have-a-focussed-approach/

    What could the matter be?
    I recently installed Brian's Threaded comments plugin but I had once had this problem even before having installed that plugin.

    Please help me out!

    Thank you.
    Angad Sodhi.

    When I check the source of that post, I see this in the comments form:

    <input type="hidden" name="comment_post_ID" value="39" />

    Then checking on another post, I again see:

    <input type="hidden" name="comment_post_ID" value="39" />

    I assume the value has been (mistakenly) hardcoded. Change it to:

    value="<?php the_ID(); ?>"

    I checked it and I found this line:

    <input type="hidden" name="comment_post_ID" value="<?php echo $post->ID; ?>" />

    The ID of the post where all comments are going is actually 39!!

    Then the task is to look at how your Recent Posts / Recent Topics are being generated. Considering Post #39 is presently the last one on both of these, one (or perhaps even both) are somehow overriding the $post object.

    Does a theme file decide it or is it decided out of the theme files?

    In other words, will changing the theme solve the problem??

    I can't answer those questions directly, as I've no idea what is generating Recent Posts / Recent Topics. If these are components of the theme, then yes. If not (say they are plugins), it would depend on how they are incorporated in the pages.
