[Resolved] Comment link doesn't work

  • Hello, I have a slight problem with my wordpress site. The link for it can be found here:
    http://www.dewfund.com/lorenzo

    On the home page, if you try to click the comments link at the bottom of one of the posts it will simply go nowhere. This is so in both Safari and Google Chrome. Some of my posts have no other way to go to the comments simply because of what type they are.

    I have looked at my plugins to see if it is one of them but I think not considering one of the only plugins I have that may mess with comments is Jetpack.

    I also tried changing the theme but it didn’t work.

    And help would be much welcome. Thank you for your time.

  • There seem to be a javascript error that makes the problems. When I disabled javascript on Chrome the links works just fine. It could be any of your plugins.

    I went though one by one with all of my themes, disabled them, then tried the link. It still wouldn’t work. I then disabled all of my themes at once and tried it and it still didn’t work. I disabled javascript in Safari like Kimikaze said they did in Chrome and it worked. So it must be a javascript error but where?

    Before when I said that I tried another theme I clicked live preview in the theme selector. I just tried activating the default wordpress theme and had all of the plugins active and the link worked. So it must be the theme javascript. Is there a way to easily fix this that I can do or should I just contact the developer?

    Yes, you should contact the developer – commercial themes are not supported here.

    Yeah, it was free theme. But I will see what I can do. Thank you for your help though!

    I tried to find a way to contact the developer but there was no way to unless you but a paid theme which I didn’t want to do. Is there anyway to troubleshoot the javascript to see if I can fix it myself?

    I fixed it. I launch the Safari error console and found that it came up with an error when I clicked the link. I then traced the error and found out that something in the java script just wasn’t specified. Since I didn’t know what to specify I deleted the one entry because it was only used for a scrolling animation that would scroll the page down to the comments when the link was clicked.

    So now it works. The only thing that is missing is a smooth scrolling animation when I click the link but it still jumps down to the comments and now it works so I am not complaining and I learned a new thing or two.

    Thank you all for your help.
