  • #1.Although I have deactivated comments, the ‘Leave a Comment’ link persists, and is clickable. It takes you to a post page. It should read “comments off” once disabled NOT “leave a comment”.

    #2.Also, my trackback link is nowhere to be found despite trackbacks and pings being enabled.

    Since twentyten is an in-development theme as part of the WordPress 3.0 beta, you may want to consider reporting these issues as bugs:

    1. If you don’t want comments on your blog, remove the following line from your theme’s loop.php file:

    <span class="comments-link"><?php comments_popup_link( __( 'Leave a comment', 'twentyten' ), __( '1 Comment', 'twentyten' ), __( '% Comments', 'twentyten' ) ); ?></span>

    2. To display the trackback link, you’ll have to find someway to integrate the trackback_url function into your design:

    And if you’re NOT using 2010, what theme are you using? 🙂

    @macmanx: that’s what I figured. I’m using a develompment phase template within a beta WordPress. Talk about a double whammy!! When I installed WordPress via hostmonster, the default install was the most recent build, which happens to be Beta.

    I thought this was the place to report the bugs. Seems like this is a regular forums board I posted on. Ooops. Thanks for the links and information!!!

    @ipstenu, Yes. I am using Twenty Ten.

    Off to report these kinks in the apprpriate “bugs” section.


    Just as a follow up, what if I simply change my entire theme, choosing an established, relatively stable theme from the Themes library? Would the Comments quirk travel with me to the new theme, assuming it is theme, and not wordpress, related. Certainly any theme might come with its own uniqe set of bugs, but I don’t want ghost traces of bugs from the Twenty Ten template carrying over.

    Should not be any “carrying over”. Install the WordPress Default theme and see if the problem persists:
