Posts don't have comments fields

Recommended Posts

My posts have no comment fields.

I checked off "allow people to post comments on new articles" in Discussion Settings.

I don't have commenting turned off anywhere that I can find, neither on the individual posts nor on the Blog Post Template.

Is there anywhere else I should check?

Make sure you have the Comments section active on your Blog Post template, in Drag and Drop.

Please search our forums, before posting!

Yes, it is active in the Blog Post template, in Drag and Drop, it is sitting under the Share Bar and above Post/Page Pagination.

Thanks, all. I discovered the issue. The posts created while I had disabled commenting remain without comments available after having enabled them. Apparently that cannot be reversed. However, new posts do have comments enabled.

You can re-enable comments on old posts. Just edit the posts and check the box to allow comments. :)

      I know this does not have anything to do with Pagelines directly but this is happening on my PL5 site.  At the bottom of my blog posts I have put the Facebook Comments Plugin and it works well but when people are leaving comments they are the same for every post.  Does anyone have any idea on how to solve this so the comments are for the post they are on.  Does that make sense? Ha!
      Thanks for any ideas folks.

      Does the magazine section not support comments?  I have comments allowed but they aren't showing on post pages and there doesn't seem to be a way to add a comments section in either.
      Many thanks in advance.

      I have installed and activated the disqus comments plugin and no matter what I do the comments will not show up on my posts. Is this a know glitch with disqus and pagelines?

      Hello all,
      I realize there's a chance that this super-basic question is going to make me look foolish, but I can't find a setting for it.
      Most blogs I come around allow people to reply to a specific comment (there's a reply link for each comment as opposed to just one reply at the bottom of the comment list).
      On a blog I manage that's using Pagelines (and foolishly not a child theme), there's no such reply link for each comment, only one at the bottom of the page.  I thought maybe there was a comments setting somewhere that would enable "in-line" commenting, but I couldn't find one.
      Am I overlooking something very basic, or is it a matter of adjusting the theme code to allow this?
      Thanks in advance,
