  • When someone posts a comment on my blog and I click reply, my reply shows up on my dashboard AND on the top of the post in the comment count but does NOT show up in the comments section.

    Again, I’ve rarely used comments, but I believe that replies are displayed as a 2nd level comment, so this might be the source of your problem; check in your comments.php file to make sure all is there.

    I’d also revert to the default 2010 or 2011 default theme to see if it breaks there too. If it doesn’t then you know it’s somewhere in your teamplte files.

    What am I checking for in the comments.php file? I’m not sure I understand.

    Perhaps you’ve broken something in your comments.php file. By temporarily reverting to the default theme (using the default comments.php file), you should be able to confirm if it’s the tempalte file that’s causing this problem or not.
