    readers can leave comments but first must register in order to do so. After registering and leaving their comment the post comment button does not work. even if I am logged in as an administrator the post comment button will not work. For an example please visit this page: http://www.fesmediainc.com/stevie-nicks/

    Jetpack has been installed and the Jetpack comments and subscriptions have been configured. Can someone please help me out?

    PS I am a NEWBIE so if code is needed please tell me where to put it.

    Thank you

    Update: I disabled requiring readers to register in order to leave comments and once I did that the post comment button worked. So it appears the reason the post comment button will not work is because I am requiring readers to register before being able to leave a comment. Can someone PLEASE help me with this.

    Thank you!

    ok, i hacked together a little work around
    since the button only works if registration is not required, i changed the code so it thinks that registration is never required.
    im not sure about the downstream affects of this are, but it seems to work for me.

    so in this file(you can edit this from your dashboard under Plugins->Editor):
    on line 172
    i commented out this line (by adding two forward slashes):
    'comment_registration' => ( get_option( 'comment_registration' ) ? '1' : '0' ), // Need to explicitly send a '1' or a '0' for these
    and put this below:
    'comment_registration' => '0',

    so basically the modified code in context should look this:

    $params  = array(
    			'blogid'               => Jetpack::get_option( 'id' ),
    			'postid'               => get_the_ID(),
    			//'comment_registration' => ( get_option( 'comment_registration' ) ? '1' : '0' ), // Need to explicitly send a '1' or a '0' for these
    'comment_registration' => '0',
    			'require_name_email'   => ( get_option( 'require_name_email' )   ? '1' : '0' ),
    			'stc_enabled'          => $stc_enabled,
    			'stb_enabled'          => $stb_enabled,
    			'show_avatars'         => ( get_option( 'show_avatars' )         ? '1' : '0' ),
    			'avatar_default'       => get_option( 'avatar_default' ),
    			'greeting'             => get_option( 'highlander_comment_form_prompt', __( 'Leave a Reply', 'jetpack' ) ),
    			'color_scheme'         => get_option( 'jetpack_comment_form_color_scheme', $this->default_color_scheme ),
    			'lang'                 => get_bloginfo( 'language' ),
    			'jetpack_version'      => JETPACK__VERSION,

    users still have to login to comment, but the button works now, at least for me

    I'm unable to reproduce this issue. Can you send a list of your active plugins and the theme you are using?

    Do comments work if you use the Twenty Eleven theme?

    i undid my changes (for the workaround) and everything seems to work fine now

    i did add a few other plugins and updated a few plugins as well as my theme so im not sure what change might have caused/fixed the problem

    i can try to figure out all the changes ive made over the past few weeks if you need, but everything seems to be working fine now (at least for me)

    thanks for your help!
