Support » Themes and Templates » Submitting comments gets a 404 error – Help!

  • Hi there,

    Am completing the ‘wordpress for designers’ webcasts from themeforest…and although they’re excellent I can’t resolve the issues from day 9.

    Basically, my code is the same as the screencast, but when I try to submit a comment I get a 404 error!

    Help! New to wordpress and tried everything I can think of!

    My comments.php code is below:

    Much thanks in advance.

    if(!empty($_SERVER[‘SCRIPT_FILENAME’]) && ‘comments.php’ == basename($_SERVER[‘SCRIPT_FILENAME’])){
    die(‘Please do not load this page directly!’);

    <?php return; } ?>

    //Display the comment loop
    if(have_comments()) :

    <ol id=’comments_section’>
    <?php wp_list_comments(array(‘avatar_size’=>80, ‘reply_text’=>’Reply to this comment.’)); ?>
