  • The comment form is not displaying on WordPress blog posts

    I have built a stunning website, but unfortunately, comment form mysteriously vanishes from all my posts, leaving our readers unable to voice their thoughts.

    How can I troubleshoot this issue and restore the much-needed comment form to my WordPress posts?

    If the comment form has mysteriously vanished from all your WordPress posts, there could be a few possible reasons for this issue. Below are some steps you can follow to identify and resolve the problem:

    Check your WordPress settings:
    • Go to the WordPress admin dashboard & navigate to "Settings" -> "Discussion."
    • Ensure the option "Allow people to post comments on new articles" is checked.
    • Review other comments-rel and settings and ensure they are configured as desired.

    Verify the post settings:
    • Open one of your WordPress posts where the comment form is missing.
    • In the post editor, make sure the "Discussion" box is checked under the "Document" settings (usually located in the right sidebar).
    • Ensure the "Allow comments" option is enabled for the specific post.

    Check the theme settings:
    • If you are using a custom theme, theme-specific settings might affect the display of comments.
    • Review your theme's settings or options panel for any options related to comments or post layouts.
    • Look for any settings that could disable comments or hide the comment form.

    Refreshes the setting
    • Refreshing the "Allow people to submit comments on new posts" setting by disabling and re-enabling it is ideal to ensure that the setting is adequately saved and applied.

    Disable plugins:
    • Deactivate all plugins on your WordPress site temporarily.
    • Check if the comment form reappears on your posts. If it does, one of the plugins may be causing the issue.
    • Activate your plugins individually, checking after each activation to identify the plugin causing the problem.
    • Once you find the problematic plugin, consider updating it or finding an alternative.

    Switch to a default theme:
    • Temporarily switch to a default WordPress theme, such as Twenty Twenty-One or Twenty Twenty-Two.
    • Check if the comment form appears with the default theme.
    • If the comment form shows up, it indicates that the issue lies within your previous theme.
