Comment Fields not Showing

Recommended Posts




I'm having trouble with my comments section for my website http://www.fabhousewife.com.  There used to be no issues, but something has recently changed.  Even though comments have been inserted within the "drag and drop" setting for "blog" and "blog post", and nothing is selected as hidden, the comment box is no longer showing up.  I can see some previous comments, but there isn't a way to add new comments.  Also, the "add comment" link is now listed underneath the title of a post, but it still doesn't show a comment form when clicked.  I've tried in Firefox and Chrome.  Can you please help?  I'm using Pagelines version 2.3.8.

Quite likely this is caused by a plugin conflict.  Double check to see if anything is changed at Dashboard > Settings > Discussion.


Presuming nothing's changed, disable all plugins you did not obtain via the PageLines Store (except Akismet).


Make sure everything's up to date.  Check each disabled plugin to ensure it's compatible with WordPress 3.5.


Let us know if this resolves the issue.


BTW, if you have a caching plugin, clear the cache before deactivating that, and do that one last.

      Since i recently updated to WordPress 4.9.4 there have been some unusual behaviours with Platform 5 (version 5.1.8).

      I am unable to edit the colour pickers for the backgrounds (the boxes do not show up anymore) and when i activate a plugin from the extend menu it does not show up in my page editor tools.
      Is this a problem for everyone else?
      Thank you in advance for your time.

      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.

      WordPress 4.7.1 was released on 11th January.
      It introduced a new bug that stops certain filetypes from being uploaded.
      This bug unfortunately stops users from uploading SVGs with the Platform 5 builder.
      In the meantime if you need to upload an SVG or have any other image upload issues then please try this plugin that bypasses the mime checks that were introduced.

      EDIT: 4.7.2 has been released without the fix. Fix is now slated for 4.7.3

      Hey Everyone,
      Ever since the latest wordpress update, woocommerce will not display the product images. When you click where they should be they pop up in a light box, but otherwise are not visible. The errors appear to be theme related. Is there an update or fix for this?
