Recommended Posts

I installed Disqus to manage blog commenting. But now when I show "add comments" in the meta bar just below the title is doesn't do anything.

[post_date] · [post_comments]

Is there a work around for this?!?

Hi Eileen

I've taken a look at your site, I can see the 'add comment' showing up in the meta bar, i think this is displaying due to the fact there are no comments in any of the posts at the moment. When a comment it posted this should change to a number.


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

Well...

I tried a test comment in my most recent post - subject "text comment" - then I replied to it. That seems to work...

BUT...when I click on the meta bar (...which only reads 1 comment?!?) shouldn't it take me to the comment area?!? Nothing happens when I click on it.

Eileen, I went to your site, selected a post for Ice Cream.... saw "2 Comments" in the meta bar. It took me to the post, where I scrolled down and was able to add "I see comments".

Looks like everything's working.

Hmmm...I guess I didn't think that would be considered 'working'.

I thought [post_comments] in the meta bar not only showed the number of comments, but it also "linked to the comments." (...aka, immediately scrolled down to the comments area upon click.)

Well it does go straight to comments if your using the standards comments system, it 'jumps' to the wp-comments div. But discus renames the divs, so it does not work.

      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,
      -jason

      I'm not sure if this is something that can easily be done, but I'm looking to move the respond section above the actual comments (when a post gets 100+ comments, it can be cumbersome to scroll through all of them to just respond). I've tried creating a custom section but the comment code is a bit engrained in the DMS theme- I'm not sure it can easily pulled out an made into a tidy section. Any thoughts or points in the right direction would lovely.
