Support » Theme: Ignite » Comments Box Not Showing

  • Resolved sfield981


    I have a Leave A Comment link below my first published post on the Home page, but it doesn’t lead to anything when clicking on it and there’s no Comment Box for readers to leave comments on the post page. Can you tell me what settings I need to correct in order for this to show up. THANKS!

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Thanks for using Ignite!

    In your Discussion settings (Settings > Discussion), make sure this setting is enabled to allow comments:

    Next, visit the post in your dashboard and make sure comments are enabled for the post in the Discussion box: You should see the Discussion box below the post editor, but if you don’t, click on the screen options tab at the top and check off the Discussion box first:

    Once comments are enabled, the “Leave a comment” link will take visitors to the comment form on the post where they can leave new messages.

    Thanks for the reply! I confirmed all 3 of those suggestions prior to my inquiry and no luck with the Comments box coming up. What else could be missing for settings? The Leave A Comment link is still not leading to a Comment form for visitors. Appreciate any other insight!

    Okay thanks for checking those. I forgot one more setting – Ignite has a comment display feature in the Customizer (Appearance > Customize > Comments). Make sure the posts are checked off there to display comments:

    I also have had All Selected (Posts, Pages, and Attachments) in the Customizer as well. Still no redirecting to the Comment form when clicking on Leave A Comment. Any more ideas? THANKS!

    I just noticed in my next post that I was reviewing for publishing in Draft format and it doesn’t have a Comments choice is the Screen Options, BUT my post preview has a Comments form available at the end of the post. I don’t why the Screen Option choices are different between the 2 posts and I’d like to replicate it for my first post to make the Comments form available, but it doesn’t seem to have any effect on the first post whether I check Comments or not or how to even get rid of it as a choice like my next post’s Screen Options choices. Any thoughts on this? THANKS!!

    I just visited the site and I now see the comment form displaying for both posts. Have you found a solution, or is it still not displaying when you visit?

    Somehow or another I played around with the different comments and discussions choices and was able to get it working so I think I’m okay now. Thanks for the help!!

    Mods: please delete spam comment, thank you!

    Dear Ben,

    None of these (above) helped me to make visible the Comments …
    In fact, I do not reach any display feature in the Customizer (Appearance > Customize > Comments). So, I can’t “Make sure the posts are checked off there to display comments:”

    I try to make visible the Comments on ..

    Than kyou (in advnace)

    I’m afraid this support forum is only for the Ignite theme, and the aforementioned features are added by Ignite. Please reach out to the developer of the theme you’re using and they should be able to help.

    Thank you Ben for answer and suggestion.


    I’m currently experiencing the same problem. I can’t seem to get the comment box to appear on my blog posts. All relevant boxes are checked to leave a comment. Can someone please help?

    I am also having a somewhat similar problem with my Twenty seventeen theme and receiving comments. It seems comments are only available if you scroll down to the blog post from the opening web page and click on the “read more” heading, then at the end of each article a place for comments appears. BUT if you click on “blog” from the navigation menu when you first access the website and read the article from there NO option is available to leave comments.
