Custom post types – comments not showing?

  • Hi,

    I’m in the process of building a site that makes quite heavy use of custom post types. I’ve set up my post types to support comments (i.e. I’ve added 'supports' => array('title', 'editor', 'custom-fields', 'comments') to register post type()), yet they’re showing up as closed in the front end (i.e. comments_open() is returning false) yet in the WordPress admin area, the comment bubbles are showing up, bold as brass! Any ideas?

    Cheers

  • I am having the same issue, no idea what’s causing this. Did you have any luck?

    Knock knock.

    I’m having the same issue. I just get “Comments are closed.”

    Hey Esmi, not sure I understand. Why I think I’m on topic here, all three of us are having the same problem and we’re not sure why. Do you have an answer?

    And are you all using exactly the same version of WordPress, running the same theme & plugins on the same server?

    pezholio and illutic: turns out that comments were working all along, but, when I went to enable the comments on my individual pages, I used the bulk edit and didn’t turn them all on (just the first page). oops.

    esmi: thanks for the lesson on posting questions to the forum and have a nice day.

    I’m on WP3.1 with a custom theme and some plugins that don’t seem to effect comments at all.

    Andy, thanks for that. Apparently the bulk-edit didn’t enable it for all posts here either..
