I can’t see the comment typing area

  • Hi. I managed to use the loop (I edited my index.php – the “short and sweet” one, the one found on my wordpress’ main directory) for displaying my blog, its title etc etc.

    Here’s what I got so far: (last edited: 7/24/05)
    http://www.cyberkamote.net/blog/

    I even managed to display that “0 comments” or that “1 comment” thing…

    But the problem is when I click on that comment link, I end up in a page with only the post and no COMMENT TYPING AREA where I can type in my comments..how come?

    The only files I have edited so far (as of 7/24/05):

    – index.php (the one on my wordpress’ main directory)
    inside the themes directory:
    -header.php (made my blog look simpler-removed those bg images, removed the sidebar and the footer and the main header image and colors)
    -style.css (changed a few colors)

    Thats about all the files I edited. I really dont know what went wrong. any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much!

  • You’ll need to add the code that calls the comments where you want your comments to appear:

    <?php comments_template(); ?>

    You’re not supposed to edit the short and sweet one. It needs to stay short and sweet. You edit the index.php in the theme folder. All your other issues probably flow from that.

    @techwench Thanks ill try that.

    @tomhanna
    But if I do this (as what the codex said):

    define(‘WP_USE_THEMES’, false); <–I replaced TRUE with FALSE
    require(‘./wp-blog-header.php’);

    then anything I do with the index.php in my templates folder doesn’t take effect, right? coz I tried it and it displays nothing…

    UPDATE:
    @techwench it kinda worked for me (what you suggested)..Thanks a lot ..all I have to do now is tweak some colors and stuffs and Im good to go! Thanks a lot, you guys!
