    Hey Community,

    My Front Page comments are operating funny when assigning a static Page as the Front Page. When posting a comment the page doesn't seem to enter the comment correctly.

    Detailed description:

    I'm developing a non-profit site, and I ran into several issues with comments on the home page in a custom template. I created a custom page template and assigned it to a page, title home page. Then, I set up that page as a static page through the admin>reading>front-page option. The page displayed fine as the homepage, but when I posted a comment, the page moved to the top of the page and displayed:
    but the comment did not appear and the page did not move down to where the comment is located, and I had to manually refresh the page for the comment to appear. I have developed several custom pages similar with no problem. I did a slew of trouble shooting using the codes from the other sites and couldn't find a solution. I found that the comment function works fine when using posts, but for some reason, it doesn't work on Pages assigned to the Front Page. Finally, I went back to the default template (for testing), and I experienced the same issue when a page is set as the home page for the wordpress default, check for yourself:
    (I may be editing this, so it might be changing)

    Anyhow, I've been stuck for hours, and any help would be great!

    Fingers crossed,

    Oh my goodness... it just worked!

    I'm not sure what it was, but there are two possibilities:

    1. The internet connection- I relocated to a different internet connection, and issue may have been associated with that particular connection. I also tried a different computer and different browser at the old location, both resulting in the same issue.
    2. The server- I am developing on a shared server, and this limits the ability to reset the server and etc. Maybe this was the issue, I needed a refresh.

    Also worth noting, maybe it is a combination of the two. Anyhow, I just wanted to post a follow-up and update. In the future, maybe someone will find this "vague diagnostic" useful.

    Fingers uncrossed and getting ready to have a glass of wine...
