  • I just approved a comment for the first time. Now the post has disappeared from the front page. I went to the Manage section and the post and comment are both still there, but is does not show on the page.

  • Check its status – maybe it has been changed from “publish” to “draft” or “private”. Just a thought…

    There is nothing that says it is a draft. I just approved a comment for another post and the same thing happened. WP is making any post with a comment disappear.

    Doubtful — or a very very new issue. I’d be more inclined to look at your theme.

    If you temporarily switch to the Default theme, do the missing articles show up?

    Just tried going back to default. The posts are still not showing.
    I also un-approved the comments and still no change in status.

    So, when you go Manage > Edit (the invisible post) and it is open for editing – what does it say on the right under the Post status section? Which radio button is selected?

    Found the problem. It was the ShowonFrontPage plugin. This is a plugin that does the exact opposite of what it claims to do and obviously doesn’t give you any options at all with posts that have received comments.

    People who create plugins should test them first.
