Support » Fixing WordPress » No comment/leave a reply form for single posts

  • After two days of research I have to ask now. Sigh.

    I use the free version of pagelines/platform. I deactivated plugins before and switched to another theme as well. I also made sure that in “discussion” all necessary boxes are ticked, eg allow comments and so forth but still: there is no leave a comment/leave a reply link or form on the bottom of my post page or the single post. I have three pages: About, Shots, Contact and on About and Contact I can at least see the social media icons for Twitter and Facebook. On my Shots (post page/blog page) there is nothing! When I activate another theme I could leave a comment on the About and Contact page but not on Shots – the only page where itยดs necessary! I am not sure but I assume that it has something the do with wordpress as well as with the pagelines theme? I am getting really desperate :((((

    Thanks for all your help!

    When I activate another theme I could leave a comment on the About and Contact page

    Which shows it is a theme setting.

    There are other posts on that forum also. Do a search on their forum for “comments do not show.”

    Google “comments do not show pagelines wordpress.”

    Better than waiting for someone who might come along.

    And just a thought, I know they are your initials but for some the term JAP would be very offensive. Not that I am PC – just wanted to point it out. :^)

    Ok, theme setting. I googled and I tried to find something out on their forum for the last two days…and I just tried to find some help here. Frustrating…

    Uuuum, yeah. JAP are my initials….well, I donยดt know what to say. Thanks for your help anyway…

    You have to have the comments section active

    If you have that, and comments are enabled for the post it will appear.

    When I activate another theme, I could only leave a comment on the About and Contact page but not on the Shots page which is my actual post page….so I think it’s not a theme setting?!

    What I would love to have in the end:

    About & Contact page – NO comment/leave a reply
    Shots page – YES comment/leave a reply link (and social icons)after each post or when I open the post.
    At the same time I would love to have the Shots page as my Front Page – is this possible? Maybe I deleted some important code….argh! Going crazy ๐Ÿ˜€

    Well, I have activated the comment section in pagelines and also the Social Sharing Icons….I also enabled them in the Screen Options….

    Pleaseeee help me! ๐Ÿ™‚ I will change my initials in JP as well! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Many thanks!

    Hi JAP198,

    To keep comments off your pages, open the Page Template in Appearance – Editor, find a code similar to <?php comments_template( ”, true ); ?> and delete it…or just try taking out the word true.

    To show a comment form on your Posts, try checking

    “Automatically close comments on articles older than __ days.”

    If you posts are older than the setting, a comment form won’t show.

    Hope this helps. Good luck!
