Support » Plugin: Social » Theme integration issue

  • Hi there,

    I recently updated my WP installation with the MH Magazine WP Theme and am having a problem with it not showing any comments that were imported from Facebook or Twitter through Social. This includes both posts from before and after the theme change. I reached out to their support and their answer was as follows –

    MH Magazine does nothing that would prevent regular WordPress comments from showing up, because the theme will just display what is available in your database. But it’s important that the plugin stores the comments as WordPress comments.

    If the plugin stores the comments differently in the database, then there probably is an option or a piece of code that you can add to your theme to display these comments. For more information you could contact the plugin developer as we don’t have any insights into that plugin.

    I replied with –

    Well, I did flip over to the WP default theme and the comments showed up, so I would think that it suggests that the comments are being stored as WP comments.

    To which they answered –

    The MH Magazine theme filters for regular WP ‘comments’ only as we’re splitting the comment section into ‘comments’ and ‘pings’ to display them separately. The default themes just display everything mixed, that’s probably why it is being displayed, no matter what type of comment it is.

    If the MailChimp guys have provided any feedback regarding what the requirement is to display their comments, then you can modify the file comments.php as you like.

    Anyone have any thoughts on how to address this issue?

    Thanks!
