I am using WordPress 3.4.2 with the Etherna WP 1.2 theme to run a blog within a website. Everything works fine, except that the comments don’t show when you click on the “No comments” or “x comments” link.
You just end up on a new page with no comments, and no comment form!
So basically, although it is possible to add comments through the admin panel, no one can read those nor reply.
What have tried so far:
deactivate all plugins –> only 1 running: WordPress Importer
switch to the default theme and back to the Etherna one
tried all the permalinks settings…
None of this does fix this problem.
You can have a look for yourself at http://www.fojproject.com/news/ .
Hope someone has an idea, I couldn’t find anything on internet, besides the obvious (comments are authorised, anyone can post, no need to register…).
Thank you for the prompt reply! Your comment did help me to solve this annoying issue.
There was in fact a PHP error, but not where I though.
My Single Post file (single.php) includes 2 other PHP files:
So I opened both files and added the missing reference to the “comments_template” at the end of the loop, just before the footer:
‘<?php endif; comments_template(); ?>’
It works just fine now.
I am sure it will be helpful to others to know that there is no such thing as a WordPress bug for this issue. It’s just that some themes do not include the comments template in their PHP files. It’s a bit silly as you can waste a lost of time, just as I did…
Thanks again, you made my day! ;o)
