Support » Everything else WordPress » Turning comments back ON

  • The site I am working on – she wanted comments off on her posts and now she wants them back on. I do not know how to get them back on and can’t find the original template (although I could redownload it I suppose even though it has been heavily modified). There is a page called comments-popup.php but I don’t know what I am looking for to have the commenting ability on for her posts. Comments are turned on in Settings area.

    Can anyone help?

    1) go to Admin Dashboard > Settings > Discussion and turn on Comments there.
    2) Upload default theme’s comments.php to your theme’s php if you do not have one then open up your theme’s single.php and add
    <?php get_comments(); ?> right after
    <?php get_content(); ?>

    My theme doesn’t have a single.php file. Might it be called something else?

    It’s definitely single.php if you want comments on posts. If you want comments on WordPress Pages, modify page.php.

    It is easy enough to create a single.php file and add to your theme. Just open index.php in notepad/bbedit and save as single.php, add the comments tag I mentioned above after the_content, upload the new single.php AND the comments.php from default theme to your themes folder in server.
