Would like comments to show on the main blog page

Recommended Posts

scribblebean
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
      Have researched this in the forum and find a couple ancient posts from 2011 and 2014 apparently for pre-DMS2?
      Am using latest Wordpress  4.8.4 running DMS Version: 2.2.4 theme
      When in the editor (Chrome), the page looks fine, but when logged out and viewing individual posts, they show up twice - one in the column I have setup and a second time at bottom of content page but above footer???
      Each page has 2 columns, left column is biggest and contains wploop/content and comments. wpcontent loop is displaying a second time below both columns but ONLY when not in editor. While in editor, second wp content block does not appear???
      https://cassclayton.com/el-chapultapec/  is a post. You can get to it from NEWS | News/Blog dropdown menu, then choosing a post.
      The 2011, 2014 posts talk about going into Settings and adjusting the excerpts vs full settings, but can't find anywhere to do this in DMS???
      Not sure if this is a new issue or old one i just now noticed.

      Best regards,
      John-eriK

      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.

      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
