Comments do not work

Recommended Posts

cvandyck

I am having a problem with comments. It does not seem to work on either Posts or Pages (where it is allowed). No comment form appears. If I use the Simple form plugin, I get a form but nothing occurs from the information entered. I want to just use the standard WP comment but it doesn't seem to be there.

Was it working prior to making any changes to the theme? You should try deactivating plugins one by one in case that may be the problem.

Yes.. have deactivated each plugin one by one .. no effect? At some point it was working. I seem to think that it stopped when I installed the simple mail plugin, but not sure. It has also been deactivated and deleted.

Hey Chuck, The comments aren't even being generated (including a "Comments Closed" comment, which would appear if it was just a setting thing). Did you do any modifications to your template files?

What about each post/page meta setting for "Discussion"? Did you check those?

Nothing in your CSS appears to be hiding your comments form. What do you mean by looking at the site headings? Are you referring to the page headings?
