Would like comments to show on the main blog page

Recommended Posts

Framework Version: 2.1 
WordPress Version: 3.9.1
Screenshots: atached
Details:
 
Steps to reproduce:
  1. Go to blog page: http://taraonmaui.com/blog/
  2. Scroll to the bottom of the post

Observed: there are no comments available

 

Desired: Comments show on the /blog/ page.

 

More notes:

I'm working on this for a client who uses Pagelines, and I'm not familiar with the framework.

 

Comments appear on the individual pages, so the comments themselves are working for each post. Posts are separated by pagination, with one full post to each page.

 

The desire is to get the comments on the actual blog page as well. Is that possible? If not, is there a workaround to get this effect?

 

Thank you.

Hi,

 

Unfortunately, you can not display comments section on the blog page. As this isn't standard for any blog, a blog page is supposed to display a list of posts showing either the excerpt of all posts or the full post itself depending on how you have configured your Post page. However, comments are not supposed to be displayed on the blog itself, because it isn't the individual post but a dynamic page made up of all your posts. So if you drag the comments section, how is the comments section supposed to know which post it is assigned to, it can't.

 

You may be able to use a hook, but this is something you will need to ask on the WordPress support forums, as our comments section will not work on the Posts page (blog page). This also goes for all theme I have ever used or tested.

      Hi,
      I am trying to remove the sidebar areas from my child theme (pagelines.com) from the post pages on a site:
      https://staging4.talltreemusicfestival.com/2017/grand-analog/
      The content is all the way to the left and very small, and the two sidebar areas are taking up a lot of space.
      What I'm after is content to the left, taking up most of the space, and then a small sidebar width on the right for widgets.
      I've tried selecting 'read width content' and 'full width content' in the edit screen for the WP content section, but it doesn't change.  If I try to move the sidebars (1 or 2) to the left, it doesn't change.
      If I select the pagelines framework theme (not child), the two sidebars go away when not selecting them in the edit screen..
      Can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong?
      Thanks in advance.

      I've created a new post category "Success stories" with Custom Post type UI. (in order to have a different layout for a different post category - blog post one layout, success stories another layout).
      New category "success stories" are "detached" from all the other posts, so they have a different layout, but the problem is that all of the success stories are also having the same exact content.
      So whenever I edit content (e.g. change body text) on one of success story posts, it also changes the content (body text) for all other Success story category posts. 
       
      Question: Is there a way to retain this separate category with it's own layout, and have a different content for each individual post? I'm using Pagelins templates. 
       Thanks in advance.

      Hi,
      Is is possible to have different layouts for different Post categories? We have Blog posts, News posts and Case studies that all are posts, but is it possible to differentiate their layouts?
      So far when I change a post layout it affects all Post type pages. Could it be done somehow with creating a separate template? 
      Examples below

      I'm trying to find a way to display the full content of my posts on my posts page rather than the post excerpt. 
      I've tried using various plugins to create a custom excerpt with no success, so I'm guessing I'll need to make the change to the theme files. That being said I'm not able to find where I would make that change. In the past I've been able to replace <?php the_excerpt(); ?> with <?php the_content(); ?>, but I'm unable to locate this in the framework theme? Am I missing something here?

      Hello
      Anyone know why Posts will not appear on a website?
      We can see them all in the admin console but the website with the page for the posts - https://www.trueblueauctions.com/articles/ shows the titles but when you click on an article they do not appear.  Example: https://www.trueblueauctions.com/phone-call-estate/  Notice the article content is not present.  
      It is this way for all posts on our website.
      Anyone have any ideas of what could be wrong and how to fix it?
      Thank you for your thoughtful consideration.
      Wishing you all the best of Providence.
