Support » Plugin: WP Advanced Comment » Comments not appearing

  • When WP Advanced Comment is activated, comments do not appear on my pages (with current comments settings in WP, they do appear as long as your add-on is deactivated). I believe this is because this code is missing (as stated in your directions): “1) To show the comment form comment_form() / comments_template() tag should be enabled on the .php file where the post will be displayed. 2) If the comment form doesn’t display on some pages then comment_form() / comments_template() tag is not used in that file.”

    When I go to appearance > editor to try to add that code, nothing is called just page.php (as I’ve seen you tell people in other comments here), nor is anything called by the name of the page I am trying to get the comments to appear on. So I have no idea which of the files to add it to. I tried just copy/pasting the code into several different files but it never gets the comments to show up (and sometimes breaks the page). Even if I were to find the right file, I don’t know where in the file to insert it – or even if it makes a difference where (I have done some light html coding but I don’t know php at all). I also don know if I am supposed to put in “comment_form()” or “comments_template()” or “comment_form() / comments_template()” or what.

    Please help! I need this feature to go live tomorrow, the next day at the latest. 🙁

    I am at a complete loss of what to do now.

    1. Are you using comment form on post / page ?

    If on post use “comment_form()” on single.php

    If on page use “comment_form()” on page.php

    Hope this helps 🙂

    No, because the problem is that I have no idea where to find page.php to add in that phrase. Where will I find the file called page.php?

    I’m having similar issues. The comment form used to show up on all my pages/posts that I had checked. Now it only shows up on posts and doesn’t show up on any of my pages. I’ve tried everything but can’t seem to find the error. Please help!
