We have a new WP installation at separation.ca/blog.
We have customized the skin slightly, but otherwise, the installation is pretty much virgin.
When (unregistered) users see a new post, and they want to comment, they see “You must login to comment”. Underneath that is the login hyperlink.
Next, when they click the login hyperlink, they are taken to the login window. After correctly logging in, WP redirects back to the correct post.
Here’s where it gets weird. Even after successfully logging in (I’ve tried with Subscribers, Editors, even Admin) we still only see “You must login to comment” and the login link.
When that link is clicked, it takes the (now logged in) user to their Edit Profile page. So obviously, WP knows that the user is logged in. But the page does not update to show the “Add Comment” link.
How do I start to debug this problem? Could it be the theme? Is there a code snippet I can post here for a more experienced eye to look at and see if something’s missing?
