I’m pretty new to using wordpress and could use some help with my blog. It seems the comments link isn’t working on my main page. When you click on it, it doesn’t go anywhere or attempt to load the post’s page.
The link looks fine and when I copy and paste it into the address bar it works. Only time when it doesn’t work is when I try to click on the link in the main page. I’ve seen it work on a demo site where I grabbed the theme. Tried it at home on Vista + IE at home and Linux + IceWeasel at work.
I’m using version 2.6.3 and the charcoal (2-column) theme.
Interesting update, earlier youtube was running slow (i have a few youtube videos embedded using the smart youtube plugin) and when I clicked on the comments links on the index page during this time it worked fine.
After youtube fixed whatever problem it was having, my index page loaded normally and the comments links stopped working.
So on a hunch, I reloaded the index page and quickly clicked on the comments link before the page fully loaded and it worked! So that leads me to believe that there is might be something wrong with the index page somewhere. I disabled the plugins, deleted my posts, and the problem remained.
Below is my index.php. I’d really appreciate any help on it. I have no idea how a click on a link won’t register at all.
<?php get_header(); ?>
<?php get_sidebar(); ?>
<?php if (have_posts()) : ?>
After a bit of screwing around and comparing the code with the stock template. It seems the problem was with the permalink structure and the template not working together. For some reason it just would not work with the default permalink setting.
Works fine now! 😀
Now back to work to what I should’ve been doing… 😉
