  • Resolved thehierophant


    In my comments box there are a bunch of comments waiting for approval but they are all just my first post, not comments at all.

    Is this normal wordpress behaviour?

    Unless you provide a link to a page demonstrating the problem, no one will be able to offer much in the way of assistance.

    It’s only on my dashboard page, there are no comments on the actual post. Could it have something to do with akismet? What should I link to? If I link to the page it just looks like a normal post with no comments.

    I could maybe do a screenshot of my dashboard comments.

    Have you tried:

    – deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    – switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    – re-uploading the wp-admin and wp-includes folders from a fresh download of WordPress.

    I recently did upload a fresh install of wordpress due to me buggering up some code. I’m only new to this and I suspect the problem may have been caused by the way I put posts up.

    Instead of leaving them in draft mode I would publish and then ad more to the posts.

    Anyway I copied some of the posts and tried deleting and trashing the comments and it did not seem to affect the posts themselves so I trashed all the comments and deleted them permanently and everything looks OK at the moment.
