Support » Fixing WordPress » No Comments Except for Logged In Users

  • phoenixd


    So, my blog is not taking any comments except those from logged in users. The option for that is not checked, so I don’t know whats going on. I upgraded from 2.0.2 to 2.0.4 to try to fix it, but that did not happen. No errors, no settings that look like they need to be changed. Turned off Akismet to see if that’d fix it…no luck. No other comment moderation plugins or systems. Help!?

    Oddly it redirects to and shows the front page, when the user is not logged in and comments. While logged in commentor is brought back to the correct page.



    No one have any ideas?



    I’m stumped, for what that’s worth. (not much)

    If you temporarily change to the default theme, what happens if a non-reg’d user comments?

    Same problem. It tries to go to

    But this time I get:
    Error 404 – Not Found

    Still no answer to this….

    Probably some corrupted files? Try deleting and re-uploading related files.

    Deleted all files, and re-uploaded…still not fixed. Allows me to post a comment when I am logged in, but that’s it. 🙁

    Still no solution…Can’t say I am terribly impressed with the WordPress community lately 🙁

    Maybe bumping every two hours kind of ticked folks off? Please remember that there are 88,541 other threads here in the forums and you’re not the center of the universe.

    I just left you a comment on this post. Can you check to see if it exists somewhere on your site please.

    Kinda hard for me to have any thoughts about this since I’ve never had it happen. Sorry.

    Hey drmike,

    I only bumped when it was off the first page. I was hoping others would have seen this problem and thus provide a solution.

    There are no new comments from anyone but me in the last week. Not in the database or on the site. 🙁

    Thanks anyways vkaryl.

    Y’know, just about the only thing I can think of for you to try right now would be a concerted google and yahoo search, varying the terms as needed, and basically clicking on thousands of the probably millions of results.

    Not fun, I know. But I truthfully haven’t any clue….

    This kind of thing, may be easier/possible to solve if I have full access to the installation, where you could print out stuff, etc.

    So, maybe ask your programmer friend to dive in, or you could give me access if you trust me enough. my email is alphaoide at gmail dot com.

    maybe just a start,

    can you install another wp on that same server to see if it suffers from the same problem? and just to make sure, download fresh wp package again from this site.

    I created a test blog at and when I comment on it…it brings me to but it shows the index page of

    Seems like an .htaccess thing…but i have deleted my htaccess a few times and allowed wp to recreate it. 🙁

    I will email you soon alphaoide…But if anyone has any ideas…I’d love to get this figured out
