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 http://screencast.com/t/6swDOhkoLD

    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

    Settings
    Discussion
    “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!
