[resolved] Comment Issue "wordpress mu sitewide tags: plugin" (9 posts)

    So I've been using the "wordpress mu sitewide tags" plugin since yesterday and everything has been working fine, but the only issue that I've noticed is related to comments on the main tag blog.

    Lets say I publish a new post on one of my blogs, everything looks normal on that particular blog with "leave a comment" as an option and working. But if you go to the "tag blog" the post shows up like it should with the exception of "comments off" being where it should have a link to leave a comment.

    In the mean time I removed "comments off" from the the comment_template.php file, but does anyone know of a solution because I would really like "leave a comment" to work on the tag blog?

    Note: "Leave a comment" does appear for posts that have been published on the tag blog.

    The site's still under construction, but here's a link if it helps:

    I believe that is intended behavior. You don't want comments for a post split between the tags blog and the blog where the post was originally published. This forces a user to click through to the blog the post comes from and leave a comment there. Then everything is in one place.

    That makes sense, thanks. I'm relatively new to WP so I assumed that the link, "leave comment", would redirect you to the the single post on the blog that it was published for the comment to be posted; not the tag blog.

  4. On the site where I aggregate posts, I remove the "leave" comment" link.

    Yeah I'd like to do that as well, that's an option in the dashboard for the chosen tag blog right?

  6. I think that's a theme thing, actually.

    I guess I could make a copy and rename the theme for that page since all my other blogs use the same theme.

    I think I found that section in the loop.php file:

    <span class="comments-link"><?php comments_popup_link( __( 'Leave a comment', 'twentyten' ), __( '1 Comment', 'twentyten' ), __( '% Comments', 'twentyten' ) ); ?></span>
  8. There's a plugin that allows for CSS edits per site. If you did that, you could just hide the comments-link via CSS.

    That's even better, I'll definitely look into that. Thanks for all the help guys I really appreciate it. Marking this thread as resolved.
