Support » Fixing WordPress » No Comments – Been Working on This For 3 Days

  • Good Day… I would REALLY appreciate any help here. My comments are not posting.. I can see them in administration side of the wordpress application but they will not appear on my pages under ‘comments’ – IT IS DRIVING ME NUTS! 🙂

    I have been working on this for three days strait and can not resolve it…


    if ('comments.php' == basename($_SERVER['SCRIPT_FILENAME'])) die ('Access denied.');
    if (!empty($post->post_password))
    	if ($_COOKIE['wp-postpass_' . COOKIEHASH] != $post->post_password) { ?>
    		<p class="nocomments"><?php _e('Enter your password to view comments.'); ?></p>
    <h2 id="comments"><?php comments_number(__('No Comments'), __('1 Comment'), __('% Comments')); ?></h2>
    <?php if ($comments) : ?>
    	<ol class="commentlist">
    		<?php foreach ($comments as $comment) : ?>
    			<li id="comment-<?php comment_ID() ?>">
    				<big><?php comment_author_link() ?></big>
    				<?php if ($comment->comment_approved == '0') : ?>
    					<span class="await_mod">Await Moderation</span>
    				<?php endif; ?>
    				<span class="comment_data"><a href="#comment-<?php comment_ID() ?>" title=""><?php comment_date('F j, Y') ?> @ <?php comment_time() ?></a></span>
    				<?php comment_text() ?>
    		<?php endforeach; ?>
    <?php endif; ?>

  • I will not that this is only happening to one theme… It works FINE with the rest!!!

    Here is my single.php:

    <?php get_header(); ?>
    	<?php if (have_posts()) : ?>
    		<div id="sidebarB">
    			<?php comments_template(); ?>
    		<div id="content">
    			<?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); $loop2counter++; ?>
    				<div class="post" id="post-<?php the_ID(); ?>">
    					<h2><a href="<?php the_permalink() ?>" rel="bookmark" title="Permalink: <?php the_title(); ?>"><?php the_title(); ?></a></h2>
    					<p class="details_small">
    						<?php the_category(', ') ?>
    						<?php comments_popup_link(__('Comments (0)'), __('Comments (1)'), __('Comments (%)')); ?>
    					<?php the_content("<em>Continue on page " . $post->ID . "</em>"); ?>
    					<?php wp_link_pages(array('before' => '<p><strong>Pages:</strong> ', 'after' => '</p>', 'next_or_number' => 'number')); ?>
    					<p class="date"><?php the_author(); ?> @ <?php the_time('F j, Y') ?></p>
    			<?php endwhile; ?>
    			<?php if ('open' == $post-> comment_status) : ?>
    				<h2 id="respond"><?php _e("Leave a comment"); ?></h2>
    				<?php if ( get_option('comment_registration') && !$user_ID ) : ?>
    					<p><a href="<?php echo get_option('siteurl'); ?>/wp-login.php?redirect_to=<?php the_permalink(); ?>">Login</a></p>
    				<?php else : ?>
    					<form action="<?php echo get_option('siteurl'); ?>/wp-comments-post.php" method="post" id="commentform">
    						<?php if ( $user_ID ) : ?>
    							<p>Logged in as <a href="<?php echo get_option('siteurl'); ?>/wp-admin/profile.php"><?php echo $user_identity; ?></a>. <a href="<?php echo get_option('siteurl'); ?>/wp-login.php?action=logout" title="<?php _e('Log out of this account') ?>">Logout</a></p>
    						<?php else : ?>
    							<p><input type="text" name="author" id="author" value="<?php echo $comment_author; ?>" size="22" tabindex="1" />
    							<label for="author"><small>Name: <?php if ($req) _e('(required)'); ?></small></label></p>

    						<?php endif; ?>
    						<p class="allowed-tags"><small><strong>XHTML:</strong>  <?php _e('You can use these tags:'); ?> <?php echo allowed_tags(); ?></small></p>
    					<form>	<p><textarea name="comment" id="comment" cols="100%" rows="10" tabindex="4"></textarea></p>
    						<p><input name="submit" type="submit" id="submit" tabindex="5" value="<?php _e("Leave a comment"); ?>"/>
    						<input type="hidden" name="comment_post_ID" value="<?php echo $id; ?>"></p>
    						<?php do_action('comment_form', $post->ID); ?>
    				<?php endif; ?>
    			<?php else : ?>
    				<p class="nocomments"><?php _e('Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.'); ?></p>
    			<?php endif; ?>
    			<div class="navigation">
    				<h2>More articles</h2>
    				<div><?php previous_post_link('Previous: %link') ?></div>
    				<div><?php next_post_link('Next: %link') ?></div>
    	<?php else : ?>
    		<div id="sidebarB">
    	<?php endif; ?>
    <?php get_footer(); ?>

    made a typo above, i meant ‘note.’

    Please help me!

    please note… i have switched out my single.php with one from a different theme… in this one, the comments show up but the comment box input field does not.

    Anyone at all? Where are the WP Guru’s? 🙂


    I’m still working to resolve this… I’m begging here..

    Still desperate. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE HELP ME!

    Try adding something like vardump($comments); to your comments.php, and make sure that it dumps all the comment stuff. This will tell you if the problem is in the single.php or in your comments code.

    Hey Otto42, trying that now..

    That didn’t do anything. Nothing different about anything.

    Only info I have is that there may be an extra semi colon on line 20, column 50 (or there abouts). I have deleted every stinkin’ semi colon once and tried it… Still no comments… Driving me nuts!

    the semi colon is supposed to be in single.php btw.

    i’m not goint to stop bumping this until i get help.

    You will never get help with comments until there is a login requirement.
    Nobody is going to register to your blog just to help you. Be reasonable and remove that register requirement. (Options > General : Membership)




    i’m not goint to stop bumping this until i get help.

    thats the spirit — badgering ppl into helping you is a sure fire way to get friends.

    Did you miss the part where your threads can just be locked, or deleted?

    Something else is really wrong with your site, you’ve got a second <HEAD> <TITLE> and such in the code. I’d say that your theme is just big time broken, frankly.

    The short of it is that nobody can tell you what’s wrong from you posting tiny little snippets of code here and there. Your theme is borked in some major way, and you’re going to have to give it to somebody else who can fix it, if you can’t figure it out yourself.
