  • Resolved awlang


    I’ve seen other posts on this, but can’t seem to solve the problem.

    My blog is using Atahualpa Version 3.7.10 and I’ve noticed that Comments Are Closed on all posts. I haven’t set them to be closed anywhere and can’t seem to un-do this setting. So far I’ve tried repairing the database, replacing the Atahualpa theme folder from a backup from a week ago, but neither have had any effect.

    Can anyone help? I’ll need simple instructions to follow!

    Thanks, Andrew

  • Comments shouldn’t be anything to do with the theme. It’s a WordPress setting usually. Take a look under Settings/discussion in the WordPress dashboard menu.

    For existing posts you will need to turn comments back on for each post. Open the post – click on “screen options” at the top right of your screen. Put a tick beside “discussion”.

    Then scroll down to below the content of your post and you should see “discussion”. Make sure that there is a tick beside “allow comments”. Save the change and move on to the next post.

    Great, that’s sorted it. And thanks for the thorough instructions – I hadn’t thought to look under ‘screen options’.
