"Discussions" Option

Recommended Posts


I'm looking for an option to allow or dis-allow discussions (comments) on each individual page. I don't see that anywhere.

Actually, I would like to allow comments on all blog posts but not on any category pages.

- There is nothing about this in any of the documentation; I searched.

Hi michael

Please go to

1. Login to your Wordpress admin dashboard

2. Go to PageLines > Drag and Drop

3. Click on Content Area (so it highlights blue)

4. Then select the templates of your pages (Blog Page)

5. There you should see the "comments" section, remove this from the Active Sections area.

6. Settings will save automatically and the comments should be removed from your page or pages.

I hope it resolves your issue.

Batman said the Content Area, not the Page Templates. Look to the right of the blue highlighted area above. It's in the next grouping over. Then, look in Blog Post. You can completely remove the comments there.

Alternatively, you may go to individual posts or pages, where in the PageLines Meta Settings, you will see "Hide Comments", which removes the form for that post or page only.

      Any of my posts that have approved comments that used to show are no longer showing their comments. Instead, the comment area says "(# of comments) Responses to (name of article)".  The "Leave a Reply" fields are showing, but the comments do not show after they are approved.
      I tried deactivating plug-ins but no luck. I haven't change, but did check these settings:
         1. Drag & Drop/Blog Post/Comments section is active
         2. Settings/Discussion checkboxes:  http://screencast.com/t/tk1s7Ppbt
         3. Allow Comments is checked on every post
         4. The comments are visible in each admin Edit Post page.
      Any ideas? THanks.

      Over the last month I had extensive communications with the developer of the (premium) Anything Boxes section (in Pagelines store) (Adam Munns) and the developer of the WP Polylang Multilingual plugin (Frederic Demarle).
      This was because the following problem occurred:
      Anything Boxes showed all posts of two languages (Dutch and English) on the respective static frontpages for each language. It should of course have filtered posts for Dutch language on the Dutch frontpage and English on the English frontpage.
      The solution to this problem was simple in the end. When duplicating a page for use in another language the settings for Anything Boxes were not copied to the new page and I should have set these settings manually again on the new page. I wasn't aware of this, but it makes sense. Because of this the pages didn't know how to differentiate between posts from different languages.
      The dev of Polylang told me that Polylang is currently smart enough to synchronize metas like Featured images and page templates but it does not work out of the box with metas created by plugins and themes but (according to Frederic) it is rather easy to add them in the list using the filter 'pll_copy_post_metas'.
      He mentions that he is not sure that these 'PageLines Meta Settings' are stored in post meta but that would make sense according to him. He asks if the Pagelines dev team will be interested to support this feature in the future.
      I'm also wondering if you will consider adding Polylang translation support for manually editable strings like the 'Read more…' strings in Pagelines Settings.
      Well that's of course up to you but I thought to let you know to be able to take this into consideration. I also post this for other users in case they experience the same kind of trouble and are looking for an answer.
      Best regards,

      I am using the shortcodes for tabs, as described in the documentation.

      When I insert the following code:

      [pl_tabs][pl_tabtitlesection type="tabs"] [pl_tabtitle number="1"]Title 1[/pl_tabtitle] [pl_tabtitle number="2"]Title 2[/pl_tabtitle] [/pl_tabtitlesection] [pl_tabcontentsection] [pl_tabcontent active="yes" number="1"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [pl_tabcontent number="2"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [/pl_tabcontentsection] [/pl_tabs]

      I get a strange output (in the attachment).

      Any ideas?

      Thanks in advance!
