    Can't get share options or comments on pages and posts with page builder on them. Is there a fix for this coming soon. This is massive for social sharing required today thanks.

    Hi there jalexanderphd.

    There's no reason your comments section wouldn't be showing up. Page Builder only changes the post/page content, not other things going on in the page template. Just make sure you have comments enabled on the page.

    It should also be fairly easy to add social sharing in a number of ways.

    * In your theme files - Page Builder doesn't change these.
    * With a shortcode - Just add a TinyMCE widget with the shortcode into a PB page.
    * With a widget - This is what Page Builder is designed for ;)
    * By filtering the_content - A plugin would just need to make sure it filters the_content fairly late so it's not overridden by Page Builder. We're using priority 10.

    Comments are enabled and work on the pages that page builder isn't in use on but is having the problem only on those with page builder.

    It's possible that your theme is adding the comments section by filtering the_content. Do you get this same problem when using another theme, like Twenty Eleven?

    I'm using Genesis for the theme but will check on the default theme.
