    Hi Team

    Blog comments are not displaying. I have checked that commenting is enabled under discussion. I’m sure that previously there has also been an option regarding comments on the actual blog post (when you upload it) but I don’t even see that.

    Could it be something to do with the child theme that was created?

    WP version 4.3.1
    Akismet (inactive)
    Contact Form 7 (active)
    Easy MailChimp Forms (active)
    Hello Dolly (inactive)
    WP Multibyte Patch(inactive)



    Hey createthemes,

    Could you please provide us with a temporary admin login so that we can take a closer look? You can post the details in the Private Content section of your reply. Also, on what page are you having these problems?



    Thanks. I’ve created a login for you.

    It’s all the actual blog posts that are a problem. Posts are displayed on http://dev.cocohills.co.nz/blog/ For example, there is no option for visitors to comment on http://dev.cocohills.co.nz/cocohills-location/



    I see that you have created that post with the Advanced Layout Builder so it’s the expected behaviour, creating posts with the builder will make a post act more or less like a page. You can add the Comments element to it though or save it in the default editor and comments should show up again.



    Thanks for that – I added the comments and the functionality showed on the front end as I want it to.

    When you say “save it in the default editor and comments should show up again” do you mean addign some code to appearance > editor > ?



    No he means switch to the default editor ( not the ALB ) so you will been seen on the text area our shortcodes.
    When you same the behavior will switch back.

    Best regards,


    I’ve decided to go with the ALB as I prefer the functionality. I have added the comments element to two post which I uploaded last week. Today, I created two more blog posts but on the blog page they are not displaying the date or the number of comments. I can’t see any differences in how the posts have been created. Do you know what the difference is caused by? http://dev.cocohills.co.nz/blog/



    when using ALB for blog posts you have all the freedom, but need to use it as well, because no date, number of comments etc. will be displayed automatically like when using normal editor. You need to add everything from scratch with ALB.

    Best regards,


    Thanks, Andy. The problem is that I’m using the same method and getting two different results. I have used the ALB for all blog posts but 2 of them are not displaying the date and number of comments on the /blog page.



    like I already said: using ALB you won’t have any date or number of comments. You need to add those items manually.
    Please use standard WordPress editor instead.

    Best regards,
